Colorado based men’s fashion and lifestyle brand, INHERENT, will reveal the first design collaboration with LA-based Paper 8 Apparel to jointly advocate men’s mental wellbeing.

Colorado Springs, CO. - (August 25th, 2022):

INHERENT is so much more than a men's fashion and lifestyle brand. It was founded on the principles of equipping, enabling and empowering men to speak freely about their confidence, self-esteem and vulnerabilities while challenging, and ultimately putting an end to, the stigma around men's mental wellbeing.

In addition to INHERENT's menswear and lifestyle accessories collections, in 2020 INHERENT launched a Foundation to raise funds to facilitate their hosting of practical events, signposting men’s mental wellness resources, and developing programs that allow to live as their authentic selves.

Following the recent success of Denver Fashion Week, and Taylor Draper, INHERENT founder, having picked up a ‘Designer of the Year’ award in the meantime, INHERENT are proud to announce they will now be presenting their Fall/Winter Collection at New York Fashion Week 2022 in New York City, NY. on the evening of 10th September at Sony Hall hosted by NYC based Runway 7 Fashion and are also proud to announce the design collaboration with Matthew Warren of Paper 8 Apparel for a limited edition piece to raise funds for the INHERENT Foundation.

Matthew Warren, of Paper8Apparel, comments: “It was amazing to meet Taylor for the first time - we just clicked. I get where he is headed with his brand and purpose and we knew pretty much straight away we had to do something meaningful together… And for him to invite us to be a part of his presence at NYFW is the icing on the cake! This piece features possibly one of the most dapper of actors, Cary Grant, in a truly iconic movie - Hitchcock’s North by Northwest. I hope everyone loves it as much as we do.”

INHERENT Founder, Taylor Draper, added, “It is incredible to be part of New York Fashion Week with Runway7Fashion with a debut NYFW runway show for our Fall/Winter Collection… and there isn’t a better showcase to announce our design collaboration with Matt. He is super talented and his illustration style brings a taste of Hollywood to the garment in a unique way where iconic art meets fashion.. I’m sure this is the start of a capsule and we are already planning how we can integrate within our stores.”
