NEW YORK — Live Mechanics has found a new home under the umbrella of Jack Saadia’s Fashion Exchange LLC, a New York City–based company that also owns Fried Denim and Crest Jeans. Live Mechanics split from its former licensee, Check Group LLC, in October, after nearly two years of partnership.
“My vision and dream for Live Mechanics was not in tune with Check Group’s vision and dream,” said Osa Odiase, who founded the streetwear label in 2000. “Now I can dictate the pace of the brand and make sure it is what I want it to be.”

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
