CreativeMornings/BAL: Symmetry w/ Steven White & Dominick Davis
February 22 @ 8:30 am - 10:00 am
CreativeMornings/Baltimore is a monthly breakfast lecture series based on the two core principles that everyone is creative and everyone is invited. CM/Bal is one of 196 chapters around the world meeting each month. Every month, all chapters organize talks based on the same theme. February’s theme is SYMMETRY. CM/Bal is happy to present Steven White and Dominick Davis of DifferentRegard to the stage.
DifferentRegard was born from a simple vision to create an affordable, luxury clothing brand. In 2008, two born and raised Baltimorians, Steven White (Creative Designer) and Dominick Davis (Art Director) created DifferentRegard to do just that.
Over time, they grew their production team to include a seamstress and ateliers that collectively have over 70 years of experience. This allowed the company to expand to made to measure services, handicap accessible services, women’s and children lines and even custom draperies. Davis stated, “DifferentRegard is a never-ending art project; there is nothing more rewarding than turning your vision into reality.”
Last year, DifferentRegard transformed their Howard Street storefront into a production facility where garments are made and opened a new storefront on Charles Street in historic Mount Vernon. In 2019, they’re opening their production facility as a resource to the public at large, to assist people who want to start their own clothing line but don’t have the startup capital to buy large quantities upfront, and to act as mentors to help young entrepreneurs getting started. White said, “My main inspiration is my daughter and the youth within the community of Baltimore. I want to show them that in life you should pursue your dreams and those dreams can come true if you invest the time to make it happen!”
