  1. I’m failing to understand how creating a logo and then having other people put it on clothes that yet other people have designed and produced make Paolo a designer of a clothing line. By this logic, wouldn’t anyone who ever had something made by Cafe Press be a designer too? Or is there some other element, like do I need to get pictures of my friends looking pensive wearing “Sarah’s Amazeballs 21st Birthday Crew” hoodies?

    1. Good comment, but using blanks doesn’t make someone less of a designer. The design just shifts focus to the graphics, chosen blanks, placement, type of print, etc, there are a lot of factors that go into a producing clothing. Even high fashion design have have used blanks before, is raf simons consume collection. All that being said this specific brand is super boring and the design is not interesting in the least… this is basically just a kid who follows streetwear and not even anything unique just what everyone knows

      1. It’s hard to know if a brand is interesting or not based on one article. Maybe taking a look at the Instagram account would allow you to know more about it. From models, other designs, photo shoots, aesthetic… (@chemical.x)

    2. Paolo is a designer and you are not because (1) “happy birthday” is not a design (and this is a lame idea for a hoodie), (2) the X designs are unqiue and appreciated by many, and (3) people who fail to understand are usually intellectually challenged. You should change your name to Sarah L

    1. Sugar, spice, and everything nice
      These were the ingredients chosen
      To create the perfect little girls
      But Professor Utonium accidentally
      Added an extra ingredients to the concoction–
      Chemical X!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
      Thus, The Powerpuff Girls were born

  2. @Sarah @Mala Maybe before you judge a brand take a look at what it’s currently working on. If you took a couple minutes to do some research (like on the instagram page @Chemical.X ) before you speak you would see clearly that the brand produces some VERY UNIQUE designs that take a lot of work and creativity. The logo is obviously the face of the brand just like in any large corporation so you can’t really say it’s not unique simply because you think it would be easy to replicate. Also if making your own brand of clothing AND shooting ALL of your fashion lines with your own models doesn’t make you a fashion designer l don’t know what does…

  3. @Sarah G Paolo and Pedro are fashion designers because they create products which evoke emotion, the true essence of art. If look further into the brand and its depth, then you might be able to understand why people love Chemical X and why their products sell out in a matter of days. If you cant understand this, then you probably lack depth yourself. It wouldn’t surprise me if you were one of those people who go to a museum (while wearing a tasteless “Sarah’s Amazeballs 21st Birthday Crew” hoodie) and think the pieces are “just a bunch of splashes of paint.”
