WRKDEPT is the creative offspring of Montreal’s Andy Long Hoang and Tinashe Musara who each have backgrounds in photography and visual arts, and share a mixed Vietnamese-Zimbabwean-Canadian heritage. Their whimsical, unpredictable design philosophy embraces all manner of cultural, historical and ethnological influences to create collections of clothing that express distinct forms, shapes and attitudes adapted from their source material. Made specifically as ready-to-wear street clothing, WRKDEPT’s collections both merge and completely blur any notions separating masculine and feminine sensibilities.
