Join us this coming Thursday October 12th, 4:00pm – 6:00pm as SHOP657 hosts Samuel Taylor, CEO and Founder of Silent Panda, a wearable-tech sportswear line. Taylor is former professional baseball player who studied Fashion Merchandising at the School of Fashion.
San Francisco Chronicle feature story highlights parts of Taylor’s journey of success: “After being admitted into Academy of Art University’s two-year fashion design program, he excelled so rapidly that he left six months early to accept a design position at Outkast Clothing Co., in Atlanta. He went on to become the design director and buyer for Pacific Sunwear’s hip-hop-inspired sister chain D.e.m.o., in Anaheim, and eventually returned to San Francisco to work for Old Navy and Levi’s. It was also in San Francisco that he won the 2005 Gen Art Fashion Talent Award.” Read more about Taylor and his Silent Panda collection in this week’s San Francisco Chronicle.
