First originated in 2017 by artist and designer Josue Thomas, the vintage clothing brand Gallery Dept. strives to repurpose its garments into something new through innovation and creativity. The unisex clothing brand aims to create compelling products without sacrificing quality or artistic integrity. Josue Thomas’ love of fashion began at an early age, as he watched his parents’ raw creative skills closely. His keen eye contributed to his passion for garment-making, although he never formally studied fashion. Based in Los Angeles, California, Gallery Dept.’s home office includes their retail storefront that references a gallery department. The design, production, and branding come into play for the streetwear brand.
Gallery Dept. believes in creating a unique fashion experience and doing things differently, as their philosophy centers around collaboration, creation, and rebellion. The streetwear brand has collaborated with notable figures and brands, including their Lanvin x Gallery Dept. and Migos x Gallery Dept. collaborations. Gallery Dept. fuses passions for vintage clothing and art into one cohesive vision. Each item offered within the label is designed and hand-painted by Josue Thomas on upcycled or dead-stock garments, and these items include t-shirts, hoodies, sweatpants, flared jeans, denim jackets, sweaters, trucker hats, tote bags, wallets, and more.
