Often times when you wear a hat you are limited to the one style it offers, Dallas Designer Hollywood Mo decided to break those boundaries completely, making his style of headgear: Tachet the hat with the interchangeable brim. I recently started keeping up with Tachet and the brand and got to get a quick interview for you guys to see what this is all about:
214: What sparked the idea behind Tachet hats? and how long did it take you to create the finished product?
MO: The idea of Tachet hats was mainly inspired by Don C, Kanye West, and Jay Z. A few years ago I saw Ye, and Jay sporting the dope ass snake skin strap backs, and at the time those type of hats weren’t at any retail stores to buy. So, I did my homework and found out that Ye’s good friend Don C was the guy making the hats. I started taking my own hats apart, hot gluing them back together with different fabrics. Leaving it at that. Later on I wanted to take the bill off of one hat to put it on the another one, and that sparked the idea of my invention, The interchangeable hat brim. I can’t really tell you how long the process took to create the product but just know it took a lot of time because I went through ALOT of prototyping. Not only that I had to teach myself how to sew. That was the most time consuming thing as well as learning about business, from patents, trademarks, incorporating, etc. Just know that these hats aren’t made in a manufacture, they’re all made personally by me at my home. A lot of my time is invested into each and every hat made.
214: Are there any more designs you have been working on?
MO: Yes, I have designs in the works as we speak and designs that are already completed. I can’t give too much detail about the designs. Just be ready for them when it launches.
214: What are your plans for tachet hats in 2016?
MO: I have plenty of plans, mainly to expand and collaborate with individuals I believe in. 2016 is the year for exponential growth. I can’t give a lot of details about my plans, but just know I have plenty of designs that will be launching. I also have something very special coming out during the time of SXSW. So if you love music, fashion, or creating art in general then you need to keep up with me. I’m not only here to change the hat game, I’m here to inspire through culture with other artistic individuals and innovation.
I think this is an awesome concept for hats, definitely one of a kind and cant wait to see whats in store for Tachet in 2016, If you guy want one of your own visit the site here: http://www.tachethats.com/shop/ and join the movement of something big coming from Dallas!
