Streetwear - Get Your Fit by Art Mango

Who doesn’t love a chic pair of jeans, a purse, a cute pair of boots or sneakers every once in a while? Denim is in, but most importantly, what YOU create is the trend. Define yourself. Your ideas are innovative and valuable, so walk the" streets" with your own label. Why not?? That is just the beginning.

In this fashion workshop, we will create works of art to wear or to hang in our home space. We will do independent and collaborative artwork using mixed medium materials. You will be given a list of some clothing items to bring to class and transform them or as they say, "rework" with your creative flair or bent.

Together, we will make an art scene where all ideas are respected and embraced in a non-competitive vibe, so join. Get your fit and do what makes fashionable sense to you.
