ECHELON✧STEALTH is a startup FashTech company founded to advance the aesthetic & functional fusion of fashion & technology.
We aim to fulfill the perfect intersection of utility, durability, technology, and self-expression.
Our tech-wear lines will draw heavy inspiration from dark military technology, covert black ops projects, stealth aircrafts, ninjutsu, dystopian sci-fi, and clandestine espionage culture.
CORE VALUES //
[ F7 ]
PATHFINDER // PRINCIPLES :: PHILOSOPHY
F.OCUS // Laser focused team w/ ambitious vision committed to a long road map and desire for positive, disruptive impact in FashTech.
F.ORM // The human body is an archetypal machine designed by an omniscient power with forced adapted through aeons of evolution. We respect the original master design and aim only to enhance meaningful function, absent residual excess.
F.UNCTION // Non-invasive intuitive integration of modern technology and high-quality utilitarian/technical materials to achieve high-level human performance with elevated functionality and creative minimalism.
F.LUID // Perpetual reimagining of our apparel lines with adaptation to changes / advancements in culture, politics, technology, while remaining agile to quickly pivot against unforeseen forces.
F.ASHION // A commitment to reinforce aesthetic appeal and designer detail while maintaining high-quality standards and technical function. Art ultimately lies at the cross-section of fashion and technology.
F.UTURE // Information & technology are evolving rapidly, so too should outdated business models. Company’s without clear vision and core drivers will lack the motivation and required skill sets to future proof their business; leaving them exposed to competition, corporate decay and technological debt. We recognize these challenges and are building on a modularized platform that incorporates best-of-breed third-parties as specialized components to our strategic nerve center.
F.REEDOM // Once humanity’s obstructed layers are peeled back, and honest stock is taken of our primary desires, that underlying outcome ultimately leads to one shared thread…freedom. Society must never underestimate the importance of securing our unalienable rights to free-thought / free-expression / free-sharing / free-ideas. We implement a militaristic mindset and attitude when it comes to retaining these freedoms, which history repeatedly indicates arrives at a lofty price-tag. We plan on keeping ours and urge you to do the same.
Main materials of focus will be traditional techwear textiles such as:
– DS 3XDRYSKIN
– Polartec fabric
Other integrated materials include:
– Aircraft Grade Aluminum / Titanium
– Carbon Fiber
– 3M Dark / Reflective / Glow in the Dark Tape,
Experimental material science breakthrough textiles include:
– Biodegradable Collagen Fabrics
– Stretch, Multi-Color Reflective Panels
– Arlyte (a proprietary stretch fabric made of jade particles that cools as it's worn)
– Ultralight Leather (weighing 95% less than normal leather with the same if not strength and durability)
– Dyneena (considered the world's strongest fiber)
– Temperature Sensitive Outerwear
– Rubber-Wool Hybrids
– 4-Way Stretch Fabrics
We are also researching high-grade military materials that draw inspiration or direct influence from Stealth Aircraft Aviation and/or S.W.A.T. Tactical.
APPAREL LINE :: TECHWEAR //
We feel the most promising, interesting, and functional segment in the new-age fashion space is a little known carve-out loosely desribed as techwear.
Emerging as a hybrid crossover of fashion, outerwear, and technical engineering, techwear maintains relentless focus on balanced synergy of form & function.
Known for it's minimalistic silhouettes and darker palettes, at it's core, techwear intends to fill the void lying at the intersection of utilitarian function, technology, and personal expression.
We will explore both the grey man and black ops archetypes for bolder and more subtle collections, with each offering durability and resistance to weather, promoting freedom of movement and a dark, discreet dystopian aesthetic.
The space will allow us to nurture and grow with our collective community’s creativity for positive feedback loops. We hope to be an influential force with a head-first quantum leap plunge into fashion's new state-of-the-art.
Here we will dive deep into modern applications of new textiles, 3D manufacturing processes, virtual and augmented reality, integrated wearables distilled into versatile designs, and aesthetic high-performance minimalism.
BRAND PHILOSOPHY //
As humanity progresses forward we are quickly approaching the singularity threshold where our species moves past the point of no return into quantum advancement of all industry, culture, and social dynamics. We believe this means entrance into a modern-day renaissance with high-level innovation unlike anything witnessed this era.
Artisans, creators, technicians, entrepreneurs, philosophers will be empowered through the independence of technology to pursue their crafts for self-expression, independence, and the benefit of the world.
Augmented reality and seamless human-machine integration appears to be emerging as our own self-fulfilled inevitable future.
We want to be on the cutting edge of this trend and evolve as a leading contributor to the evolution of wearable technology and functional fashion.
We believe in the power of a mastermind coalition. As part of our reconnaissance we seek to align a syndicated network of creators, innovators, influencers, and tacticians who share our core values and brand philosophy.
We want to build with the global techwear and fashion-forward tech community to contribute our unique value elements, while gaining perspective and honoring the contributions of our predecessors.
In the near future, we plan on rolling out an influencer platform showcasing other creative tacticians in their given artistic field with sponsorship programs and swag regalia.
CREATOR :: FOUNDER //
ECHELON✧STEALTH is the brainchild of Jason Moeding, a South Florida native, business pioneer, technology entrepreneur, and futurist. His creative experience ranges from recording independent hip-hop albums, drawing/sketching pencil-work, advanced barbering techniques, and the co-creation of innovative technology platforms for the mortgage industry.
Having worked in fashion retail at an early age and a mother with over 30 years experience in high-end fashion retail, Jason decided it was time to exit the drab black & white environment of retail finance and channel his creative energy into the vivid, glitchy black & white landscape of High-Tech / High-Fashion, where he believes limitless opportunities exist for creators. His background offers sharp business acumen and financial modeling to help support the artisanal design side of the brand.
As founder, his responsibilities include creative design, sales, marketing, photography, videography, creative writing, and social media engagement to serve current and expanding customers and international markets.
"There's no doubt in my mind the future belongs to entrepreneurs and independent creatives."
