Converse Century - 100 years of disruption
Patrick in the booth ..
Shirts provided were John Varvatos for Converse . Guests could pick their t-shirt or tanks along with their favorite type of music and we would custom screen print on-site a design of their choosing.
these were the screens ... you could choose from rock, hip hop, folk, techno, disco,pop, and rock & roll
Here's a shirt I picked with my music selections and pattern that I had Patrick create for me ..
Here Patrick shows us how to screen print a shirt. The process takes about 3 min to complete. Start with your screen and place on top of your shirt ...
take your sponge handle with paint and pull it down over the screen several times.
Place under the dryer ..
heat for 2 or 3 minutes and your good to go ..
Apparently the entire process starts with this .. ..
Patrick let me play screenprinter for a while so I made a few shirts of my own. Cant show you these because I made them for friends that have yet to recieve them. Definitely a little more advanced that the ones shown aboved..stay tuned ..
So I took my comfy new kicks and toured the 4 level brownstone rented for this particular event.
Complimentary drinks upon entering and catered bites were passed ...
