Frayed Needle was founded in 2015 by ex-engineer Brian Antonevich, but the company began long before this. As a child, Brian was drawn towards fashion. Even if he was going to the gym, he would modify a t-shirt, throw on a hat, and put together pieces to look effortless and cool. Friends and classmates took notice, encouraging him to explore and define his style further.
While Frayed Needle’s one-of-a-kind fashion is hard to compare to anything in stores, Brian gets his inspiration from the rock stars of pop culture: The Rolling Stones, Aerosmith, Lenny Kravitz, and Neil Young. He was also heavily influenced by Melissa and Rick Caballo of Corello Rock Fashion, a big part of what inspired him to start his own brand. He has designed custom pieces for Post Malone, Quinton Griggs, Keith Harkin, Ryan Cook, and Tina Hendrix to name a few. The brand also has a bold presence in Nashville, TN, with a brand new showroom now available for bookings. Brian creates fashion that allows you to be confident in any vibe. You can bring bright lights and a stage throughout your everyday life, or you can enjoy a low-key evening where you don’t have to be the center of attention.
Originally, Brian was working as an engineer full-time and created fashion as a passion project every day after work. However, when COVID hit, he realized that fashion and design were his true callings and began to put his passion into creating one-of-a-kind pieces to share with the world. Now, Brian is ready for Frayed Needle to take off and take over your wardrobe!
