Jeff Garner, Designer & Founder of Prophetik
Couture designer Jeff Garner emerged on the fashion scene 13 years ago when he launched Prophetik, his own all-sustainable apparel label that has become synonymous with fashion-forward ethical design and garnered the attention of both mainstream and eco-friendly media as well as a devoted following of celebrity clients such as Sheryl Crow, the Jonas brothers, Miley Cyrus, Esperanza Spalding and Taylor Swift. His signature style, subtly reminiscent of the Italian Renaissance, makes his often eccentric collections both unique and impressively dramatic.
Most impressive, and what further distinguishes him from other couture designers, is his commitment to producing ethical fashion without compromising his voice as a designer. In an effort to minimize his carbon footprint, “Each Prophetik design is brought to life using only GOTS certified organic fibers and plant based dyes eliminating health risks to the wearer and honoring our planet’s resources.” Using recycled materials, herringbone hemp, peace silk, organic linen and hemp jersey, Garner infuses his line with soul and conscious style.
Earlier in his career, Garner designed apparel for the California-based sustainable label known as Convoy and it’s rumored that he was mentored by fashion greats Calvin Klein and J. Lindeberg prior to launching Prophetik. He designs collections for both men and women, some intentionally designed for unisex appeal.
Prophetik can be found in trend-setting high-end boutiques such as Fred Segal in Los Angeles, Eco Age and My Sugarland in London, Moda Boutique in Nashville and a few specialty boutiques in Japan and Switzerland. Garner currently maintains an online storefront on Etsy.com and plans to open his own concession in Nashville in the coming future. While you can expect to pay between $200 and $500 for a pair of pants and upwards of $2,000 for his couture gowns, they’re well worth it
