Narrative tells meaningful stories. Whether those stories are from the past, present, or future, or are personal, political, or cultural, they have an emotional connection to all of us. Narrative is a form of journalism, expressed through clothing. This is an experiment in making fashion more meaningful. 

Narrative was founded in 2020 by 17 year old designer Max Shen, in a small studio in the Hollywood Hills. He studied fashion design at Parsons Paris and graduated from Hollywood High School. Max is dedicated to craftsmanship and story, experimenting in sustainable and ethical, hand-made construction and embellishment techniques to create detailed, heirloom pieces.
