1. Spacecraft Collective
My work is a distillation of meaning. Confronted with the irreconcilability of life its divine implications and its violence; I work to build a bridge constructed from archetypal iconography clad in a pop sensibility. I enjoy creating these narrative structures with multiple levels of meaning. Each image a vignette from a larger unfolding story; I work to capture the concise moment of transition in these stories capable of translating insight and change into this space.
2. Party Time Watches
Party Time Watches was founded by two students at the University of Michigan. We believe our watches add some flash to every outfit. They do not tell the real time, but, instead, they blink the saying “party time” all the time (which, frankly, is much better than knowing the real time anyways).
3. My Ninja
We are the golden child of 80′s Bennetton and 90′s Dance. My Ninja! will never be a shirt nor a design, but a statement that allows individuals to connect on the constant cultural blending our generation faces. WE LOVE. WE LIVE. WE BALANCE. WE FORGIVE. Repeat x.
4. Luigi Sardo
Founded in 2008 in Australia, Luigi Sardo is inspired by a man who was a gentleman, a soldier, a father, a survivor and a role model. Old fashioned Italian morals combined with modern looks and simplicity.
Luigi was a man who put the needs of other before his own, and faced every challenge with a positive attitude.
5. Fresh Fit Franchize Clothing Co
“If you’re not FRESH then you don’t FIT” http://Freshfit.co/ Fresh Fit Franchize Clothing Co. was created in 2008, based out of Louisville, Kentucky. I know that when you wear Fresh Fit gear you always get looks and catch people’s attention. I’ve had middle aged office ladies walk up to me and ask to take a picture with me just because of the 3D tee. We’ve started to not really give a fuck about what anyone else was doing and that’s where the motto “Fresh Fit and Fuck the Rest” came from. It’s a brand for those who Fiend to be the best and really DGAF about how they get there.
6. Charlie Noble
CHARLIE NOBLE is the collaborative effort of two colleagues that have each spent some time at sea. With this background it was only fitting to produce original graphic tees and classic workwear that touches on the spirit of maritime history.
CHARLIE NOBLE is named for a ship Captain in the 19th century. He was famous for making his crew polish the galley smokestack on the ship because it was made out of copper. Either he was meticulous about keeping a clean ship, probably to the point of having OCD, or he was a tyrant for making the crew keep a smokestack clean. With little else known about him, his true character is up for discussion, but his attention to detail is the essence of CHARLIE NOBLE.
7. The Masses
A passionate group of friends decided to collarborate on a clothing project to express their love for art, design, music, and dance through one entit. Collectively calling them-selves, The Masses, the brand represents teh mass of people from all walks of life that live their freedom of creative expression.

OxDx is a Native American owned clothing line based out of Arizona. OXDX has evolved from the name “Overdose”, a name picked to describe our interpretation of the world today. From the wars, politics, and all the other bullshit, OXDX reminds everybody to take a step back and breath. The world and the people in it are consumed too much in the system, consumed so much that they O.D. Overdose on what they think is normal; on what they think is cool, but OXDX stands strong to remind society that there are better things to O.D. on… Ambition, Tradition, and Fashion…
effulgence, a noun meaning radiant splendor – brilliance. It’s human nature to have the urge to keep wanting. To be better than the best and to be greater than the greatest. Even when we reach a goal, we make goals upon goas as we all strugle and face obstacles along the way. We simply always week to be at the state of effulgence, to shine, to be brilliant, to be great.
People are ambitious and have many ideas to pursuit but friends and enemies put negativity upon them out of jealously or afraid of others’ success. It’s sometimes hard to witness ones effulgence when you’re in the process of reaching your own. Just say EFFU(lgence) to them. EFFU to “me and you, your momma and your cousin too” as we reach for effulgence.
