Justin Gloston

BFA 2004


Justin Gloston worked hard for his BFA with a focus in studio art/painting from the LSU School of Art in 2004. After graduating at LSU he went on to earn his AA in fashion design in Atlanta. With an internship turning into a full-time job, he then moved to Los Angeles where he has worked with several fashion companies specializing in the design and development of handbags and small leather goods. His main influences and inspirations come from his background in art and he infuses these art and painting references into the collections he designs.

In 2015, he established JG Design Creative, a design studio where he works with fashion companies and retailers in both Los Angeles and New York in providing them design direction for their accessory collections as well as branding and marketing direction. In his spare time, Justin continues to hone his painting and illustration skills and evolve his personal artistic style.
