Being a designer who creates looks others want to wear is not easy, and Justin Haynes does not claim it to be. An ambitious and creative personality, Haynes is a visionary who “sees the potential” of any fabric, no matter the source. Able to create fresh looks from fabrics others would dismiss, his new ideas are flowing as much as his new audience is growing due to his recent exposure in Yahoo Finance, Fox, NBC, USA Today, AP News Google News, and Leonard magazines. Additionally, Google News recently awarded Haynes 4th place on their“20 Best Custom Tailors” list. It’s truly an honour to be nominated, and Justin is proud to be amongst the top five.
A native of Springfield, Massachusetts, Justin Haynes has long loved the fashion industry, so much so that he left a steady career to take a “leap of faith”, fulfil his dreams, and create his own brand, JUS10H. At first, he wasn’t sure people would want to wear his designs. Still, he started with a model search at the Enfield Square Mall in Enfield, CT, and years later, his fashion is currently on display at that very same mall.
Haynes has taken his style to places where most designers could only hope to showcase their collections: Paris Fashion Week, New York Fashion Week, Los Angeles Fashion Week, Miami Fashion Week, Milan Fashion Week, and other showcases across the United States. He’s recently won awards like “Best Women’s Ready To Wear Designer 2019”, “Natural Born Artist 2019-20”, plus the “Fashion and Lifestyle Award” from the Black Business Association 2019, and others.
Justin’s journey started 13 years ago when he learned to sew with his mentor, Ms. Jessie Daniels. “Ms. Jessie taught me to sew in 6 months. I lived in her basement every day for six months,” he shares. Since then, he has cultivated a signature style of breath-taking patterns and is achieving his objectives to expand his brand recognition around the globe, as JUS10H grows across the Ukraine, Singapore, and Argentina.
What’s new for Justin Haynes? Onyx, a new label under his JUS10H brand, just launched in Thailand! Onyx combines Haynes’ luxurious style with classic JUS10H designs. With a colour palette of black, shades of grey, navy, brown, tan, camel, light blue, and denim, Onyx is a luxury label that is suitable for everyday wear. Also, branching out into new and innovative media, Haynes’ will premier his latest endeavours with an exclusively styled show with the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) RUNWAY 360 digital platform!

Q. Why would an artist get dropped from a major label? Does it all just come down to the bottom line? An artist would get dropped by not meeting expectations versus the risk of the investment. It does because labels lose a lot of money because they spend money frivolously and if an artist don’t recoup their money, they get dropped.
