PSFK: Why did you start designing?

Chris Isenberg: It happened by accident. I saw a photo of Muhammad Ali, then Cassius Clay, wearing a t-shirt that I wanted. I made for myself and friends, and then so many people asked me where they could buy one that I realized there was a market for what I had made. I also quickly realized I had ideas for a lot of other pieces. Up until that point, I had worked as a journalist, and what was interesting to me then and now about clothing was that a garment could tell a story. I like the fact that the objects I make with No Mas have something fundamental in common with the things I write. It all comes from the same place.
