Blacktop Market's founder, Dorian Epps, possesses a remarkable ability to transform cheap or discarded materials into captivating works of art. Even when faced with limited resources, Dorian's ingenuity and resourcefulness shine through, allowing him to create extraordinary pieces that defy conventional expectations.

Driven by a deep appreciation for sustainability and a desire to make a positive impact on the environment, Dorian's innovative approach involves repurposing and upcycling materials that might otherwise be overlooked. By infusing new life into these materials, he not only showcases their inherent beauty but also challenges the traditional notion of what constitutes valuable resources in the world of design.


Dorian's background in industrial design and his studies at the Rhode Island School of Design have equipped him with a keen eye for aesthetics, a deep understanding of form and function, and the technical expertise to transform humble materials into stunning art pieces. Through his artistic endeavors, he seeks to inspire others to see the beauty in the ordinary and to rethink the potential of everyday objects.

At Blacktop Market, this philosophy is at the core of our brand. We believe in the power of creativity to transcend limitations and transform the world around us. By embracing Dorian's artistic vision and his commitment to sustainability, we strive to offer you a unique selection of apparel and accessories that merge artistic expression with contemporary streetwear.
