Patrick Holmes was born in the state of Kentucky. At the age of twelve he realized his passion for fashion. As he flipped through the pages of a popular fashion magazine. He found himself wanting to be part of the fashion world. It wasn’t until his mother brought home an old Singer sewing machine, a box of fabrics and patterns. That a designer was born. Patrick was a self taught sewer. Through trial and error Patrick was able to make garments without patterns. At the of age 16 he had become self-employed. Patrick’s sewing skills became so known though the neighborhood. He became the city Seamster.
In his late 20’s Patrick moved to Atlanta, Georgia. Where he received a phone call offering him an opportunity to show a collection of his work. Without hesitation he said, “yes!”.
He introduced his collection under the name of Just Patreq. The reaction of his collection to the public gave patrick extreme joy. He sold all 108 pieces within 3 days.
