Romantic visual artist, pioneer, and unconventional designer Jeff Garner and his sustainable, eco label Prophetik are on a path of transformation, leading the evolution of fashion and changing our perception of luxury. Mr. Garner was just named one of 40 top artists in the US and works were placed into the Smithsonian’s Renwick Gallery July 20th for the 40 under 40 Exhibition.
The uniqueness of Prophetik begins with the artist himself. Garner’s vivacity and his commitment to creating distinctive, sustainable, eco-friendly fashion is a reflection of his environment. Born in the Civil War town of Franklin, Tennessee, and raised on a horse farm, Garner grew with a connectedness to nature and a peaceful understanding of the world. The Prophetik label’s genesis came once Jeff made the decision to combine his love for his surroundings with his artistic desires.
Prophetik is established in the United States and is fast becoming the label synonymous with fashion-led ethical design in the United Kingdom with widespread praise from both ethical and mainstream fashion media. Prophetik has also received extensive attention in technology-based media, when at London Fashion Week, Prophetik launched an iPhone case that was designed and handcrafted using reclaimed leather in collaboration with Apple and Griffin.
Prophetik will soon be launching its first concession in Nashville, TN. An offering that will complement the over 10 high-end boutiques that carry the line including Fred Segal, LA; Eco Age and My Sugarland in London; and stores in Japan and Switzerland. A press favorite and a prominent voice in the ethical fashion arena, Jeff regularly dresses Sheryl Crow, Miley Cyrus, Taylor Swift, Kings of Leon, and other musicians.
