Get Outfitted By One Grey Day
As an LA-based company, MyFDB loves showing support for local designers that are on the forefront of the industry and develop wearable, yet innovative pieces. Enter One Grey Day. The brand has become known for their chic basics which carry playful twists ŕ la printed graphics and oversized shirts. This is all thanks to President Bradley Davidowitz, whose creative mind we recently picked about the One Grey Day line.
How did you get your start in the industry? If you weren’t in fashion what would you be doing?
I have always had a love for fashion. A few years ago my buddies and I started a graphics inspired line, nothing too serious, just hats, hoodies and tees. I really enjoyed the duplicity that I found in the creative and business sides of the fashion industry; I though to myself ” I want to try this for real”. If I was not in the fashion industry I would be doing something with food or sports, they are my other passions.
Where did the idea and name for One Grey Day originate?
I knew that the inspiration for the collection was going to be clean lines and grey tones… That being said I knew that i wanted “GREY” (spelled like the Brits of course) in the name. So, instead of “One GREAT day” “One GREY day” was born.
How was your creative process different for your S/S 2011 collection verse your F/W 2011 collection?
For S/S we are looking to expand the depth of the collection. One Grey Day will stay true to the concept of playing off of cool basics, but we will do so with more novelty yarns and stitches.
How do you see the One Grey Day brand evolving in the future?
One Grey Day will be expanding the line offering a wider selection of product evolving towards a complete collection of fashion basics, with a twist of course. We will be able to offer more unique sweater stitches and complicated bodies as we continue to grow. The line will still be centered around everyday basics but we will slowly integrate colors, stitches, and unusual drapes. In the near future, One Grey Day plans to partner with some major retailers.

Lastly, what advice do you have for aspiring fashion industry professionals?
Find an investor. HAHA!! The fashion industry strives on what is new, both in design and business; but don’t forget to look in the present and past, there are and were a lot of people that knew what was up!
