Rogue Star is the brainchild of Edmontonian Gord Gabel. Always artistic at heart, Gord got his start in the world of creative apparel in 2008 when he dove right into the heart of the Canadian fashion industry as Vice President of Vancouver-based design house Dussault Apparel. His experience there gave Gord the chance to realize his passion for fashion. Through Dussault, Gord collaborated on many designs, offering his expertise to create one-of-kind pieces for this unique design house.
Since then, Gord has worked hard to turn Rogue Star into a leading destination for custom apparel and printing, both online and off. His work has earned him a reputation for excellence, and he’s become a leading authority on textile printing, speaking most recently at the imagiNATION 2016 Inkjet User Conference as an expert on the printing technology Rogue Star uses to create its custom looks.
In 2013, Gord created a custom image of Rock’n’Roll hall of fame artist and Motley Crue founder Nikki Sixx. Gord met up with Nikki when he was in town touring with Motley Crue, and the rock icon was kind enough to sign the piece, which was then donated to a silent auction held by Bryan’s Angels, where it raised over $4000.00 for The Alberta Cancer Foundation.
Rogue Star is proud to continue to support the ongoing efforts of Bryan’s Angels, a great local charity dedicated to raising funds for cancer research and treatments at the Alberta Cancer Institute. Since 2011, Bryan’s Angels have raised over $350 000, and continues to work towards their goal of $1 million.
