In 2016, Trevor “Trouble” Andrew, or whom you may now know better as the artist called GucciGhost, collaborated with Gucci’s Alessandro Michele on their Fall runway collection. And since then, has built a steady repertoire of work not only as an artist and designer, but also musician. Recently, Andrew designed a special capsule collection for CitiCard’s Vault program — a cool platform for Citi members that gives special access to intimate concerts from performers like P!NK, Muse and Chris Stapleton. Music has always had a special place in Trevor’s heart, dating back to his days of snowboarding and skateboarding, “music has always brought inspiration for me. Like skateboarding [and] snowboarding — there was always a musical element to [them] and it really inspired me. Everybody's an artist and we just find our own way to be artists,” he says.
