Back with a bang, we have partnered with Converse on another episode of OFFICE Spotlight™ in celebration of the launch of the ‘Summer Utility’ collection. This initiative delves deeper into the lives of our ever-growing community to showcase emerging talent across the creative sphere🔦🌟.

We collaborated with emerging designer, Wuzzy Omiyale aka BY.WUZZY | @by.wuzzy💘. Her brand focuses on upcycling vintage Levi’s practising reworking techniques out of her studio in North West London👖🪡.

We love Wuzzy’s self-starter work ethic and admire her passion for repurposing materials and giving the denim industry a new lease of life😍👏!

We headed to Wuzzy’s studio to see what she is working on at the moment whilst learning more about her journey so far and picking up some Converse styling tips along the way. Keep scrolling to find out more…🤳🏽

Tell us a little bit about yourself?
My name is Wuzzy, I am 25 years old! I graduated from London College of Fashion in 2019. I am the founder of BY.WUZZY, a denim brand focused on upcycling vintage Levi’s.

Talk us through By.Wuzzy and the journey that led you to creating your brand?
It was all very organic; I started my brand during the pandemic in 2020. The world was on pause, so it was quiet which gave me time to focus on what exactly I wanted to do.

Can you give us a little insight into the denim reworking process? Any tips for beginners?
First things first you need an unpicker!! Because there would be times when you would need to be unpicked jeans for days!

What’s the biggest lesson you’ve learned in your career to date?
Not saying yes to everything. Being selective is your best bet because then the right opportunities will come your way when you align yourself with what truly fits your brand.

Wuzzy wears the #Converse ‘All Star Lift Hi’ in Utility Egret. The chunky sole Khaki hued colourway is one of our faves💚.

Your proudest achievement in 2023 so far?
Collabs with huge companies and when my workshop at the V&A sold out in a few hours!

Describe your personal style?
Clean, Modest and Flirty. That might sound like an oxymoron, but it blends together well.

How are you styling your Converse this season?
