DIY With Renowned Stylist Karla Welch

We love seeing how you personalize your jeans — the pins, patches, shreds and tears make each piece one of a kind. To celebrate 501® Day, we’ve teamed up with Karla Welch, renowned stylist and founder of xkarla, to show us how she likes to customize her Levi’s®.


Check out her videos and learn how to cut, sew, stencil and spray paint your denim for a style that’s truly your own. Plus, you’ll get some extra style pointers from a few special guests, including actress Busy Phillips, costume designer and stylist Arianne Phillips, country band Little Big Town, stylist Samantha McMillen and our very own SVP of Design, Jonathan Cheung.
