Except from Blur Detroit interview – 7-05
What has inspired you to create clothing?
Well everything around Remedy pertains to looking good with what your wearing,With that in mind, Ive been in the graphic design business for 20 years,and ive learned alot on creating good designs and matching different colors together.So i try to make my clothing designs in alot of different styles and color combos to match just about anything you are wearing.Sometimes
its just all about simplicity.
Describe some of the feedback you get from your fashion shows.
Everybody loves the different color schemes,big size cut shirts,and that all the designs are simple,bold,and easy to read.
Where did the name come from?
This is funny but the truth.I had a friend that was hung over so i made him one of my home remedies for his hangover,and he told me “Todd you have a remedy for everything,dont you”.Then a light bulb went off in my head “Remedy”.
