Vinti Andrews is a collaboration between Vinti Tan and Paul Andrews.
Following Tan's graduation from London’s Central St Martins in 2001 and working with Vivienne Westwood and Kim Jones, Tan and Andrews began laying the foundations of label, inspired by the depths of electronic music its subculture whilst reflecting British heritage in their design process. Vinti's collections have also drawn the attention of individuals such as Bjork and electronic break-beat masters, The Prodigy.
The design process began by gathering a variety of tracksuit clothing and readjusting the material formula with intricate cutting techniques, birthing the metamorphosis of clothing as if to rebuild the debris of the fashion industry with a slick, innovative edge.
Following the success of her designs, VA was asked to develop the Blank Canvas project with Fred Perry, combining her signature print work upon the Fred Perry trademark polo shirts. This sparked new innovative acclaim and was positively received by a large market.
To mark the 10th anniversary of Air Max, Vinti Andrews was approached by Nike to collaborate. Andrews’ created a variety of life-size English pit bull terrier dogs made entirely of celebrated Nike trainers that were deconstructed and sculpted individually by hand to form the Nike Dog Sculpture.
Vinti has been working on the label underground for 10 years, establishing a cult following with fashion lovers.
