Yes, we know, we know, it's autumn right now, but all of the best fashion designers are getting ready for spring and summer fashion. Chicago fashion designer Jelisa Brown of Asil Nworb Designs is well known for her stunning plus size designs, but she also creates men's fashion too.

The SAIC graduate is a huge fan of the late visual artist Jean Michel Basquiat and has used his work as a source of inspiration for some of her collections, so it's no surprise that she would also be inspired by Japanese pop artist Takashi Murukami. Like Basquiat, Murukami's work has been immersed in American popular culture and in commercial media. You've seen his work on the Louis Vuitton runway and he even designed Kanye West's sophomore album cover Graduation (2007).

From June to late September, the artist had an exhibition at the Modern Contemporary Art Museum here in Chicago called Takashi Murukami: The Octopus Eats Its Own Leg. Upon a visit to the exhibition, Brown became inspired and created this amazing, one of a kind jacket for recording artist Teddy Jackson.
