Imagine a hand-painted design on a vintage LV bag, graffiti art splashed across the back of an oversized tweed blazer, or a pointed message to the haters delicately embroidered on the bum pocket of your favorite jeans.

This is your opportunity to commission a curated group of local artists to customize your clothing and accessories. This event is a great way to support local art, community, sustainable and ethical fashion and to show your personality through your unique style!
