Weekend Warrior: PATTERN’s Street Expo

Every weekend is really busy for me. To get back into the blogging habit, I decided to restart documenting my weekend activities. Hopefully this will get me out of the blogging dead zone I’ve been experiencing.

13413434_1090774757646099_1139812543_nThis past Saturday, June 18th, was PATTERN’s first (and hopefully not the last) Street Expo highlighting various street wear and street style fashion designers in Indianapolis and the Midwest.

According to Julia Rutland, owner of Aesthetic Design Style House, when PATTERN began it’s storefront on Mass Ave. in Downtown Indy, it had a lot of inquiries from street wear designers about carrying their brands. With too little space and an overwhelming response, the fashion hub couldn’t carry all the brands, but wanted to still bring awareness. Street Expo was born.

Street Expo gave local street wear designers an opportunity to sell their brands, network with other brand moguls and exposure on PATTERN’s blog. What did I buy you ask? I purchase a t-shirt from designing company, Shue’ Clothing Co. which I will wear in a future blog post.

DreamStyle Media’s own Tracy James, designer and creative director of the J2 Collection and Julian Semaj’s Bow Ties, also participated.

I hope the Indy fashion community continues to embrace street wear designers and other non-couture fashion brands. Indianapolis is heading for rebirth and it’s exciting to see new and not so new players in the game.
