Look Familiar?

February 17th, 2009 by Larry

As we wrap up production for PROCESS, I wanted to highlight the importance of these four screens. Together, they’re used to create our Crossed-Tomahawks graphic tee which is one of my favorites from the entire line. Most of our readers don’t know this, but this graphic was one of the last created for the line and almost didn’t make the final cut. It was definitely unplanned, but was a no-brainer when we incorporated our tagline, Made In The Dirty South. I think it was at that point where we decided it was totally relevant to what we were doing. If you must have one, hang tight until March the 6th, 2009. They’ll be available online at wearetheprocess.com and at Standard on that day.

DJ Klever kept the crowd pumped for hours-on-end last night at El Bar. Afterwards, he was nice enough to let me catch-up with him for a portrait outside “Atlanta’s Best Kept Secret” despite his exhaustion from the evening’s events. Thanks Klever!

Set It Off: Megan Huntz

February 11th, 2009 by Larry

megan_huntz.jpg

Name:
Megan Huntz

Aka:  
I wish I were so cool to have an alias, but…

Website:
http://meganhuntz.com

Where are you from?
The ATL shawtay

Who do you work for? 
Myself

What are your Current Project(s)? 
I make a limited edition dress line from fine Italian silk fabric that I wash and dye by hand. First I make the dresses, then I do a series of washing and dyeing techniques, rendering each garment distinctly different. I think of my dress line as more of an art project than a fashion collection. Actually, it is incorrect to call it a collection because a collection means complete ensembles of various garments to make a total look. These dresses are unique pieces; made in series, like a series of paintings or art prints. In fact, each dress is hand numbered so the wearer can understand the handcrafted nature of my product. And maybe even more important than anything, they are sexy! I recently styled a photo shoot for Jamie Hopper and she rocked it. Her photos of my dresses are stunning and elegant and cool- a tricky mix to strike so effortlessly as Jamie has. Image is such a powerful part of my job because it communicates so much about my creative world; it’s not just about putting a dress on a pretty girl. I would have never gotten this thing off the ground in the first place had it not been the amazing photography of Jorge Menes, who has shot the first series of my dress line more than once. His photos can be seen on my website. The second series comes out next week, which I am really excited about. I’m heading to Italy this Wednesday to pick up my new samples. Can’t wait! They will be on display for buyers at the showroom that represents me, showroom Mistra of Treviso. And, I have loads of other ideas for 2009 but I can’t give up all my secrets now!

Who would you love to work with?
Peggy Guggenheim if she were alive… I love her, she was soooo kooky. Wouldn’t it be great to be around her and all of her artist friends making crazy avant-gard paintings and art objects??? I think so. Such an intense era, especially in Europe. Plus, I liked her way with the Venetians. She was the last grand dame of that sinking city, when it was still a magical place, it’s not really anymore. Apart from her, I’d really like to work with my friend Wendy who makes music videos. I have an idea to make a kind of performance dance video about my dresses. We’ll see if I ever do it. I’d really like to though. I feel embarrassed just talking about it, but we’ll see.

If you had to give all your sneakers away to charity except for one pair, which ones would you keep? 
The ones Larry told me to buy- my dirty old black on black horsehair Nike dunks.

What’s on your iPod right now?
Beyonce’ (but y’all knew that), an “I miss Atlanta” mix that includes lots of crunk and booty shake music, Roisin Murphy, most of the DFA remixes, some Italian music from the 60′s.

What’s your Favorite ATL food?
My Mom’s squash caserole. And biscuits. And the Flying Biscuit, Shrimp and Grits, Potato Salad, My Mom’s homemade pickles, “Meat and 3″, Barbecue. Mexican! I love to eat, and these are all the things I miss living so far away.

What’s your Favorite ATL hangout?
The El Bar, of course, where I like to hang out with the Epidemik Coalition boys!

What are your Pet Peeves?
Those velvet track suits that college girls seem to be so fond of, Americans who come to Europe and act totally ignorant, and when there is music playing while the TV is on-that drives me crraaaaaaazzzzzyyy.

Shout outs?
I want to shout out to the entire city of Atlanta because I love it so much. But besides that: Larry, George, Jorge, Ted, Ross, Joe, Jamie, Amy- you are all incredibly inspiring to me, I am so lucky to have met all of y’all because I get so much creative motivation from our collaborations and friendships. Thanks! I’m a one woman show, but I couldn’t do what I do without y’all.

Frenemies by Jamie Hopper

February 10th, 2009 by Larry

frenemies_header.jpg

Our buddy, Jamie Hopper, had some people over the other day to take “school-portrait” style photos and the results are hilarious. People need to have gatherings like this more often. Maybe the next time we do this, we’ll have a 90′s alternative theme. Check out Jamie’s Frenemies series after the jump, and don’t forget to visit her sweet portfolio website designed by EC here

Experiments with Direct-to-Garment Printing

February 9th, 2009 by Larry

Georgios and I have been playing around with the idea of direct to garment printing lately. We’ve found that the printing process is quite fickle, painstaking, and pricey, although the results are usually really nice when done properly. It’s can become as irritable as troubleshooting your ink-jet printer at home. In my honest opinion, it seems that this will be the way of the future for tee printing, but the technology for consistency and efficiency isn’t quite “there” yet. Check out more photos of the PROCESS Iris tee from our direct to garment experiment after the jump.
