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, so he quit his engineering job and began to put all of his energy 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!
