Ready to Wear!

Something I’ve been working on for a few months since I showed my work at Unique LA earlier this year…. a collaboration t-shirt line with New Clothing Wear that features my  photographs!

I met Kyle who designs the T-Shirts for New Clothing Wear at the Unique LA show a few months back. I was showing my “Against Nature” Cyanotypes and decided to go around and see what the other artists/vendors had to show before the doors opened. I saw Kyle at his booth with -THE- softest t-shirts I have ever touched in my entire life… we chatted for a bit and exchanged information. Then a few months later we got in touch and since my “Against Nature” series is printed on fabric, the ball started rolling about printing other photos of mine on fabric, particularly t-shirts… and… as they say, they rest is history.

Out first t-shirt features a film strip (actual 35mm black and white film if you were wondering) that I took a long time ago.

The t-shirt is Unisex and is available in both white and gray and can be purchased at the New Clothing Wear online store. Trust me, this t-shirt is soooo soft. It’s made of Kyle’s custom made fabric of 50% modal, 45% cotton and 5% spandex. Those of you who know about fabrics can already imagine the softness. I suggest XS, S and M for the ladies and L and XL for the dudes.

This is my first collaboration with Kyle and New Clothing Wear. We have another 2 t-shirts coming out soon… and… I have yet another fashion surprise I’m working on right now that will be out later this year 😉

For now, check out our t-shirts and buy one. It’s a limited run and they will not be available for long.

For those of you who like to try things on… and live in Los Angeles… you can pick up a shirt at LOCAL COLLECTION at the Glendale Galleria. (and soon at other local stores).
