    im now living in a nice house with some friends getting ready to go to college. one thing ive been giving serious thought about going into is designing clothes. i eventually want to have my own company - hip-hop clothes like mecca, pnb nation, enyce, etc. Ill have to work my way up to that, and start by designing for other companies.

    Obviously people in graffiti are artistic and I remember one person on here saying they used to work for Tribal. Im sure other people have designed clothes or something.

    Whats my best route? Could I get away with going to a university or do I HAVE to go to some design/art academy? Any info/experience/advice you have would be greatly appreciated.

    On the graf tip, I visited the legal wall in Gainesville (and Im not blowing up spots since its fucking legal!), and I wrote 'Dont join the military! HELL!' across some weird thing that looked like an Air Force ad. I got a flick and Ill scan it when I can. Just doin my part to save the children...

    I think everyone thought at one time that it would be 'cool' to have
    a clothing company. I know a guy who seriously believes he will.

    Here's the thing, nobody will wear your shit unless it's better than they can do.
    (unless you're planning on selling fubu at the mall)

    As a writer, I'd never wear anything, even just a hand,
    below my own level of quality. Think JNCO... bah

    I'd like to design glasses.

    If you wanna design for some company I'd say go to an art school. If you want to do your own stuff, I'd say go to an art school (obviously you don't have to, but its a good place to get your learn on). If you can't afford to go to an art school, go to a college that has a good design department.

    I've got my own company and its not easy, but it can be done.

    i want to start to get into stitching clothes together. some of my friends (girls or boys) have really good bodies that would make it really easy for me to design shit that looks good. i'm not thinking about logo type shit, but just sewn together stuff.
    i did the whole logo thing for awhile in 10th grade. it was too much work and didnt really pay off. i figure it'll be fun to sit down w/ a bag of scrap clothes and stitch something together for my friends.

    Man, I wish I could say, but that is just too much info. Shits a direct link to who I am. I'll just say its non team based sports related. A thing to remember is doing work for other people is part of getting extra money to make your own shit. yeah, you might hate it, but it allows you to do what YOU want. Just make sure you get the client to sign off on the final sheet. And make sure that there is a disclaimer saying if they approve it then they can't fuck with you and have to pay you. Fuckers will try and get anything for free nowadays.
