You’re likely familiar with Tony Ferguson’s career trajectory from being one of Girl’s original pros through developing Alife’s shoe program, and now doing his Rone brand. But there is a little-known project with Kanye West on Ferguson’s resume that most are not aware of. He breaks it down at the 44:45 of the latest episode of The Nine Club.
I had this friend [with a factory] in Korea. So we would bring friend’s brands there. I actually helped Kanye with that Pastel line. I helped develop it, and do it there. It never came out.
This guy I know in Canada, Matt George, he was running that at the time. He’s actually back at Yeezy again. He was like, “We need a factory; we need to make these shoes.” I was there. So I was helping them do it; and that was cool to see that creative process.
