In working predominately with fashion illustrators in an effort to create print ready designs, its become pretty apparent that no matter how talented you are with pen and paper, having digital skills is necessary in today’s market. Graphic designers have been making their stamp in the t-shirt world for years now and with sites like threadless and zazzle, everyone’s a designer.
But only a mild stroke of genius combined with a mass populous of consumers influenced heavily by pop-culture can seriously provide room for a $90,000 t-shirt. To be honest, the print is pretty legit. $90,000? Really?! People are buying that? Yes, they are. (pictured below)
As we move forward with our Haute Couture illustrations (photoshoot is on Thursday, YAY!) I have been checking out some graphic tees floating around the web. This week I found a few that were simple with an interesting overall concept and/or design.
Heretics graphic tees are cut, sewn and printed in Londontown on high grade jersey t-shirts. I can dig the idea of imagery and text to solicit emotion and connection.
Get your rock on girl! I love that festival tees are becoming more of a collection piece. French fashion designer Jean Charles de Castelbajac has created limited edition t-shirts, in celebration of Paris based Rock en Seine music festival’s 10 year anniversary. Tees wil be available during the festival at dedicated pop up stores.
