Nudie's Rodeo Tailors

The infamous Nudie’s Rodeo Tailors is one of the most recognizable suits in history. Celebrities like Elvis Presley wore Nudie’s suit; he sported a gold lame´ suit. Each suit embodied ‘Western machismo with a bit of unconventional dazzle’. I met with Jamie Nudie, who is the granddaughter of the original founder, Nudie Cohn. She is hoping to continue the family tradition and keep the rhinestone-cowboy spirit alive. Additionally, she runs Nudie’s Custom Java, a coffee and sandwich shop connected to the famous tailors. I was able to photograph the entire Nudie’s Rodeo Tailors space and it was unbelievable! I am so inspired by fashion daily and being surrounded by such custom tailoring is incredible.
