Jose L. Callejas was born and raised in Honduras. As a child, he grew up passionate watching his grandmother sew inspired by his father’s family-owned men’s shirt factory in the ’60s and ’70s.
At the age of 17, he attended local schools in his hometown San Pedro Sula where he learned the first stitches that threaded his dreams until learning the Couture techniques for custom made garments.
Years later he moved to New York where he attended New York School of Design and Fashion Institute of Technology where he learned the industrial techniques used in the renowned Garment District. This, along with his experience working with Luxury Italian and French fashion houses created the perfect balance for a collection of garments that are elegant but appropriate for a contemporary wardrobe.
