28. Fiberops
There are a few unsung heroes on this list who, although they established their own design and branding career, hoisted other prominent labels on the backs of their own innovation. Alyasha Owerka-Moore will forever be one of these figureheads, having paved the way for urban and skate to fraternize through his work with Mecca, Dub, Droors, and Alphanumeric, and inspiring much of the technical direction of Japanese brands via his own Fiberops. Infusing his backgrounds in Hong Kong culture, Tokyo design, rockabilly, and car culture, Fiberops was, and remains, the most legitimate streetwear denim brand and continues to define the palate of generations of tastemakers.
