Please allow me to introduce Gerald.. The creator and master designer of Idea2LifeStyle apparel brought to you by YogaPaws
I LOVE this man. He is everything you would expect. Kind, soft, thoughtful, funny, outrageously creative and generous. It has been my honor to call him a dear friend over the years.
Everything began when Gerald was traveling abroad when two Parisian girls complimented his self-made t-shirt hoping to purchase in Paris somewhere. 2008 he list 5 designs online and within 30 seconds, the first vest was sold! By 2012, more than 35,000 pieces sold with an ecstatic customer base.
Their studio in Shanghai is nicknamed Neverland. A secret oasis full of exotic orchids, art work from Africa, India, Native American, China, Japan and Korea. Together Gerald and his team brainstorm, explore, and inspire each other by combining adventures, insights and experiences.
