Sophomore ‘Goosie’ Gabe Stern has been designing and selling his own unique apparel since he was in sixth grade.

“I made my first shirt with custom ink on a pink t-shirt with yellow text,” he said.

“I always liked to draw things when I was young,” he added.

These drawings developed into the designs of his clothing line today. Stern now has at least 50 designs for t-shirts, sweatshirts, pants and more.

He sells his clothing through his brand name Goosie Industries.

In early August, Stern opened a pop up shop at the Next clothing store on Coventry.

Next owner Jack Rosenthal encouraged Stern to sell at his store in exchange for a percentage of sales.

Rosenthal says he knew Stern’s brand could be something special as soon as Stern presented his platform and designs.

“He’s got a lot of talent and good ideas,” Rosenthal said.

“He showed me his idea and platform for his clothing,” he added.

Rosenthal believes that if Stern continues to focus on his brand, it could eventually get very popular very fast.”

He believes that if Stern continues to focus on his brand, it could eventually get very popular very fast.

Stern was excited when Rosenthal said he wanted to help bring his design to life.

“It meant a lot that he wanted to help,” Stern said.  

Stern says he sold over 160 items through the pop-up shop, with items ranging from $20 to $36.

He advertised the event on social media.

Beachwood students were well represented at the event, and many have bought Stern’s clothes.

“I like how he uses a lot of different colors,” sophomore Joelle Rosenthal said.

Stern tries to reach out to students his age when designing his apparel.

“I want it to be something they’ll like,” he said.

Stern is inspired by Kevin Abstract, a rapper and director from Texas.

“He’s where I get a lot of my inspiration from,” Stern said. “I like the ways he uses a lot of different colors.”

For the past year or so, Stern has worked with Custom Apparel, Ohio a screen printing company out of Columbus to supply his clothes.

“Any problems are easy to fix because we get samples first,” he said.

Stern hopes to make a career of his passion for designing and marketing clothing.

“I want it to turn into my actual job,” he said.
