As every Tuesday, here we are again bringing you the newest episode of our most popular series: #TshirtTuesday! A virtual place where we interview some of the most promising, up-and-coming designers (are you one of them?) and feature some of the best-personalised T-shirts out there.
This time around we bring you Marveen, a former nurse who decided to start his very own apparel line LMXO Design. A spiritually inspired brand that’s determined to spread a positive message through its minimal design.
I hope you enjoy our newest #TshirtTuesday!
Interviewing Marveen Lumucso, founder of LMXO
Tell us about you, what’s your name? Where are you from? What do you do?
My name is Marveen Lumucso, I’m from Widermere, FL, USA. I am a former registered nurse and now sell T-shirts for men and women.
What about your brand? What’s its name? What makes it unique?
My brand is called LMXO. It is spiritually inspired apparel with designs that contain spiritual themes and/or positive words and concepts. What makes it unique is that all the shirts contain positive affirmations on the interior part of the shirt. The interior messages are more for the individual wearing the garment, while the exterior part is for the rest of the world to see. The purpose of the affirmations within the shirt is more of a psychological pep talk for the one who wears it and to help draw positive vibes.
If it were a person, what would he/she be like?
If it were a person, he would have the personality of a mystic that appreciates the solitude of the natural world, ancient cultures, and contemporary forms of art such as music festivals. He would be constantly trying to observe his surroundings that may carry the fingerprints of the divine.
Simplicity is key, describe your brand in three words:
Receiving, Exuding, Positivity.
For how long have you been selling T-shirts? Any remarkable story you learnt on the way? Any advice for beginners?
I’ve been selling since July 13, 2016. Some lessons that I have learned from observing other shirt brands is that many of the spiritually themed shirts consist of designs, words and concepts based on eastern religions, and only a certain demographic are drawn to those traditions. Other spiritually themed shirts, I observed, have Judeo-Christian messages which Christians are more drawn to. What I have noticed is that individuals may not be open to a particular message being conveyed, because it may not resonate well with the spiritual belief system of a particular group. Although many of LMXO’s images of present designs and future designs find their inspiration from the predominant religion of the west, the messages are more subtle in its delivery and universal in nature. LMXO hopes that all people with varying belief systems will find value in the messages and designs of the shirts. I’m a beginner myself and learning along the way.
Key question, why should people be interested in your brand?
People should be interested in my brand because it contains stylish and thought provoking designs that humbly attempt to create a spark – an interest in spirituality. Although there is only one design printed on two types of shirts, one for men, and one for women. Future designs will range from simple to complex. On top of being an aesthetically pleasing, well designed shirt, it can also be a useful tool for those that believe in the law of attraction or manifesting. It is like a vision board that you wear.
