TTT: T-shirts, Tacos and Tunes!
By Sarah Luisa Santos . March 14, 2015
T-shirts, Tacos and Tunes. What else could we want out of a Saturday afternoon?
Lavender Wolf, DJ and entrepreneur, has got the perfect match going for a pop up event: fashion, music, tasty food and fresh drinks.
T-shirts, Tacos Tunes is all about up-cycling, DIY fashion, and most important of all: customization.
Do you have that old white tee rotting away in your wardrobe? Or that blank, totally dull tote bag? Bring it to TTT and get it printed with a personalized image from you. Or, if you’d prefer, you can choose one original print from the dozens of artists participating in the event, including Sharmila Banerjee, a German illustrator with a comic style, David Gee, who works mainly with intricate black and white doodle designs, and Redas Tomingas, Lithuanian illustrator with a soft approach when it come to wild nature.
The printing is done using a commercial heat press, and personal images can be brought on a USB stick or sent to firstname.lastname@example.org (more info about the settings on their FB page).
The best thing to do is to bring mainly cotton blend items, T-shirts, sweatshirts, hoodies or tote bags. You can also buy pieces of clothing and print on-site.
Another cool thing is that calligraphy artist Drury Brennan will be present to collaborate with guests, creating original text pieces for printing.
This is the first edition of T-shirts, Tacos Tunes, which is a platform for D.I.Y. creativity that encourages the public to re-purpose and up-cycle old or unused apparel.
The event will take place at Rag and Bone in Neukölln, where the girls from the shop will be mixing up some margaritas, perfectly matching with the tacos menu served by pop up kitchen La Tortilla Atomica.
The sounds will be provided by Playski, along with Stitch and Tchuani i, the founders of the queer hip-hop party, Berries.
Tshirts, Tacos and Tunes pop-up printing happens on Saturday, March 14th at Rag and Bone Man Vintage located on Briesstr.9 from 13:00 hr to 19:00 hr.
