The Man behind the Brand
This Young label Flylander is the brainchild of Marcus Flylander Niles.
Not coming from a traditional background Marcus
Started customising his own clothing at 16 in the early 90s, he says “ I found very little clothing available for me,”
“I’ve always loved luxury clothing in my era we grew up wearing designer labels, we even tapered our jeans, tailored our shirts, I started doing this from 14/15 years old,” He retorts: ” we really felt good in our clothing then, however it was a expensive habit, and a side effect of this is you often found people in the same outfit as you, I had a big issue with this so I decided to alter and customise my own, and it just grew from there.”
He soon became known for his stylish and flashy clothing which he then turned into a business, he supplied discounted designer clothing to private customers & friends, till he became partners in a small boutique in Tottenham. this was going well till the recession started to hit, he explains:
“I always had a flare for sketching , “me and my friend used to sketch for hours drawing comic book figures and creating our own” so i was no stranger to a pencil” i started to sketch my own designs, my own clothing, it was freeing but never took it seriously, till one day years later after trying various other businesses and the recession hitting small businesses really hard, forced my hand and we had to close the boutique.
“He decided to go to study fashion and textiles at LCCA in 2013,”
