ABOUT Punk Majesty, by Artist Alisha Amnesia
Rock n Roll clothing for people who care about more than just looking cool. We care about empowering others, inclusion, and our planet.
Punk Majesty is statement clothing for people who like to stand out in a crowd. We combine rock n roll aesthetics with elements of high fashion and streetwear in creative combinations. The ethos of the brand is empowerment and inclusion, and we care about the planet.
We started by creating one-of-a-kind upcycled pieces making empowering statements on suit jackets. Then we expanded into ties, vests, and leather jackets and gloves, all one-of-a-kind. In 2020, we added print-on-demand t-shirts, hoodies, accessories and home goods.
When you buy Punk Majesty, you are supporting an Independent Artist and a Small Female-Owned Business. PM is designed for all genders, sizes, races and sexual orientations.
After a lifetime of customizing her own clothes, Artist Alisha Amnesia founded Punk Majesty when doctors told her she had to stop talking due to vocal problems. She was forced to take almost a year off work, after a decade of working in live music events. Determined to make the most of her time while unable to speak, and determined to stay positive, Punk Majesty was launched.
Punk Majesty has been worn by Jane Wiedlin of The Go Go's, Captain Sensible of The Damned, vocalist Jake Hout of The Dead Boys, and guitarist Neal X of Sigue Sigue Sputnik and Marc Almond (of Soft Cell)'s current band. The line is currently being carried at FAB London in London's Camden Market.
The self-appointed Queen of DIY, Alisha is the designer, art director, photographer, webmaster, does all promotion and social media, e-commerce, shipping, research, sourcing, ordering, accounting, inventory tracking, model scouting, booking models, events, photo shoots, styling, event production and more. (In 2020, she even had to be her own model!) She is currently enrolled in Parson’s Fashion Business Essentials and Streetwear Essentials certification courses.
Punk Majesty has done shows in San Francisco, Hollywood, Brooklyn and New York City.
Punk Majesty jackets, vests and gloves are customized with punk-inspired details such as chain mail, locks, chains, studs, spikes, kilt pins, safety pins, leather, etc. and all painting and embellishing is done by hand.
“I like the idea of recycling and re-purposing, which is why I find and use pieces of clothing that already exist and then I customize them, making them something completely different than they were before. This is eco-friendly upcycled fashion.”
The brand began as 100% Upcycled, but now also offers some new leather jackets, gloves and ties due to supply availability and demand. The Hoodies and T-shirts are print-on-demand, sustainable, zero waste. We also offer a Recycled T-Shirt. The future goal is to work with a recycled leather manufacturer for all Punk Majesty Leather. She is also trying to find funding to launch her ethical, eco-conscious streetwear line in 2021. Making mindful, ethical and eco-conscious decisions for all Punk Majesty clothing will always be a part of the process.
