Alexander W Dreyfoos School of the Arts high school student Byron Matysek creatively transforms decommissioned fire hoses into luxury fashion accessories
WEST PALM BEACH, FL, USA, Oct. 27, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — • 18-year-old Alexander W Dreyfoos School of the Arts high school student Byron Matysek creatively transforms disused fire hoses in luxury fashion accessories
• Unique and sustainable luxury products celebrate the heroism of American firefighters and help save the environment one hose at a time
• Two races at the Chicago Fashion Show at Water Tower Place
Byron Matysek, 18 (center in photo), high school student, has developed a unique concept to celebrate the heroism of American firefighters and help save the environment one hose at a time.
This creative recycling of disused fire hoses into luxury fashion accessories had its first two runs at the iconic Chicago Fashion Show at Water Tower Place. Fashion accessories include a credit card holder, high fashion unisex belts, business briefcases and several sizes of protective zippered document pouches.
“I started Free of Fear as a simple idea of reusing materials and trying to make something out of almost anything. I started taking my ideas seriously once I saw the impact that my ideas could have not only on the fashion industry but also on the environment,” says Byron Matysek. “Even though it was founded in South Florida, where I live and go at school, Free of Fear works closely with the fashion industry in Chicago to bring our mission, goals and products to Chicago and the surrounding community.”
All Free of Fear recycled items are made in South Florida, where Matysek oversees all aspects of the organization. He is involved in the design, execution, and product-to-market process. The Chicago flagship product launch at the Chicago Fashion Show at Water Tower Place is the first step in raising awareness of the Free of Fear fashion line.
Matysek goes on to explain, “We want to support our fellow industries, products, businesses, and ultimately our fellow Americans, while celebrating the heroism of American firefighters. That’s why it’s so important to me that Free of Fear products are made in the USA.
Byron Matysek hopes that recycling these fire hoses will have a resounding impact on the fashion industry, so that the fashion industry becomes more sustainable. This 18-year-old high school student celebrates the heroism of America’s firefighters and helps save the environment one hose at a time.
