Answer : I really don’t focus on other designers. I like to keep my designs fresh and original so I DONT WATCH WHAT OTHERS ARE DOING SOTHAT I WON’T be influenced or have their DESIGNS IN MY HEAD. . I don’t pay other designer any mind. If i had to pick one designer it would be the late PATRICK KELLY . HE DID THE BUTTON THING which I thought was creative back in the 70 and 80’s. He was a black designer that was discovered in London , they discovered his talent which opened doors for him being popular in the USA.
