WHAT MAKES VANTOM ROCK?
VANTOM is an Australian urban designer clothing label specialising in limited edition handcrafted custom streetwear. First surfacing from a classic cliche 'Life is too Short' the label was a passionate discussion point for 8 years that never went anywhere, until a Co Founder had a crisis, then finally it came to light!
VANTOM was a Water (H20), Wheels and Power t shirt concept often discussed over bevvies. The dreaming and chatter went on for years and of course nothing ever happened...then one day a medical situation arose that scared the living bejesus out of a Founder. After this little scare the Founder targeted and got his dream job working in the Australian government.
Sitting on a balcony in Labrador, just 10 weeks after getting his dream job, the Founder expressed to his family how unhappy the job was making him... but how lucky he was to be alive. Again that clothing business came up in conversation, 8 years after first raising it. The following day the Founder saw a picture of a blank t shirt left open on his computer by a family member. He stared long and hard at it thinking to himself that life is pretty damn short. He left the t shirt page open all day periodically looking and dreaming of that clothing business. That evening he knew he was about to take a huge risk, but his mind was made up. The Founder worriedly wrote his resignation that night and sat on it for hours, reading it over and over, wondering whether he was doing the right thing. His finger hovered over the mouse for what seemed an eternity and then he finally clicked. The relief was instantaneous and exhilarating. He starting working on VANTOM the following day. After 8 years of labour VANTOM was finally born! VANTOM is based on the Gold Coast, Australia.
