The Story behind Lord von Schmitt Crochet Clothing!
After graduation, Schuyler in Barcelona had the opportunity to design costumes for a low budget film, using whatever he could find in thrift stores. It was in Barcelona that his Irish roommates taught him how to knit and sew. He immediately caught up but did not it was the most efficient way of making clothing. Then, while going through a thrift store, he spotted Afghans in brilliant colors and flamboyant patterns. All his artistic eyes could see was folk art handmade by artisans of the past. He later upcycled the Afghans to create a wearable sculpture.
Schuyler went back to the U.S. where his friend invited to attend a fashion show in Los Angeles. He was excited and started gathering crochet pants and sweaters. He did not receive much attention there. However, this did not lower his spirits. Thus, he opened a Lord von Schmitt shop on Etsy, which is an online market place for individual vendors to sell their wares. People began to hop on to this style from all over the world.
