Unlmtd Xpressions offers custom painted, embellished and distressed merchandise. Each item is custom made to the clients preference. Some of the popular items we paint/embellish include leather jackets, hats, shoes, handbags, denim, etc. Using social media in Dec. 2016, I turned my hobby of painting and embellishing clothing into a fashion business resulting in immediate sales. My focus is on building long-term relationships with my clients and providing custom items at an affordable price. The client’s personality combined with my painted original design enhances the garment.
Street style is a specific fashion style which comes originally from British fashion culture. It is a comprehensive approach to fashion and producing styles which intersect and differ from mainstream fashion considerations.

Though streetwear is often a major fixture in street style — especially as of late — it’s important not to get the two terms confused. For, street style is nothing more than the documentation of someone’s style who happens to be walking on the street. It means nothing more than what dubiously commissioned photographers — or mere iPhone owners — deem worthy enough to snap.
