Taylor Blackburn is a 19 year old artist based in Lexington, Kentucky. He is attending the University of Kentucky for Digital Media and Design. Growing up Taylor was never a traditional sports fan and would rather spend his time focusing on art and skating with his close friends. In 2015 they created the name Dredlife to solidify their group. For years they envisioned using the name to create a skateboard or clothing brand which never materialized. Dredlife continued through high school and then after college started was then revived as the official name of Taylor’s brand. He chose the name Dredlife because of all the various memories that that group gave him. His interest in fashion began in high school with customized shoes which lead to him finding inspiration from famous streetwear designers. 

 

He is currently working on his first collection.
