Jay Wright
Chief Design Officer, WMW Brands

Born in Waukegan Illinois on January 19th early Monday morning. Mother a CNA and father an army soldier, he grew up in Milwaukee Wisconsin and North Chicago due to parents being in separate homes and states. Growing up wanting to be a car designer, til things were derailed. Still wanting to design, he started drawing clothing in the way he believed to be the most appealing and stylish. Whilst professionally boxing, he had his boxing outfits made by a local designer who became his mentor in sewing soon after. That led him to creating Artystri Design.

It’s now 2016, and Artystri Design has its first designs created. Creating brand awareness with just T-shirts was a success for him. With that he wanted more to reach the high fashion market. With his creative mind he knew he had to do so much more with his designs. Sewing one of one pieces showed his customers he was a force that won’t be contained.

With custom design as a focus, it created the sights of no limits of fashion possibilities. With that he was contacted by an international magazine in 2019 to be a feature. With the shock of notoriety, a second magazine contacted him in 2020. Continually pushing forward with his custom couture style, he shows art in a light that's super appealing to the senses.

Shatonia Biles
President Artystri, a division of WMW Brands

Art has always been my life, from drawing, to painting, to sculpting, and then to sewing. I started college as a fashion design student in 2014 and immediately fell in love, I fell in love with the process of how clothes are made, the different pattern pieces, and the different ways you can bring a garment together, I have seen over 100 clothing lines but never one as unique as artystri, even though there were so many rules in school, Artystri allowed me to break every last one of them, Think outside the box, And completely invent an new style of dress, and fashion.

Her leadership with the design and direction of Artystri is the key to the brand’s growth and success.
