Like many fashion enthusiasts, Gregory’s fascination with fashion began with studying renowned designers such as Versace, Gucci, Alexander McQueen, Vera Wang, Ralph Lauren, Chanel, and his ultimate favorite, Roberto Cavalli. He was captivated by the unique and compelling stories that each brand conveyed through their clothing. This admiration for fashion’s storytelling ability ignited a spark within him.

However, life took Gregory on a different path as he decided to pursue a career in dance, putting his fashion dreams on hold. It wasn’t until 2011, a year marked by a profound loss, that he rediscovered his love for fashion. The passing of his beloved mother, Linda Marie Truitt, left a void in his heart, and it was through the art of crochet that he found solace and therapy. Crocheting became a creative outlet, a means to heal, and a way to express his emotions.

Gregory’s journey started with crafting scarves and hats, but his passion soon led him to more intricate creations. His crochet projects evolved into hoodies, sweaters, suits, and dresses, each piece showcasing his remarkable craftsmanship. What was once a personal coping mechanism becoming a platform for self-expression and innovation. Gregory Stitch was born from the ashes of grief and the desire to honor his mother’s memory.
