Senior Designer at Converse FIRST STRING

Bolstering Converse’s standard off-the-rack catalog, the First String program has emerged as one of the best diffusion labels of recent times, administering premium fabrics and superior construction. Offering up projects with Dr. Romanelli, NEIGHBORHOOD, CLOT and others, Converse First String has demonstrated its ability to stay with the curve. Many were also allured by the Margiela and Converse drop this year, which jarred expectations of what one could expect from Converse’s collaborative efforts. Together with Converse's growing skate positioning and of course iconic Chuck Taylor, Converse continues to stake its claim in footwear.
