Adam Saaks – R2RR Ep. 42
Designer Adam Saaks, has been making his mark in the fashion industry for over 16 years. He’s one of the most unique talents continuously breaking new ground with his precision cuts and signature laddering techniques. His celebrity clientele would wear out any red carpet and includes people from Heidi Klum, Lenny Kravitz & Justin Timberlake to Janet Jackson, Katy Perry & Eminem. Discovering pot as a young child when his baby sitter gave him access to her stash, he was in rehab by the age of 15. By his early 20’s he was living underground in the rave scene of San Francisco but his drug use had graduated to crystal meth and cocaine. Out of work and poor, he found his niche of T-shirt slashing in 2001 after designing some t-shirts at a Las Vegas trade show. Hear him tell his story of success and recovery this week with host Wes Geer.
