TJ Cowgill, founder and creative director of Actual Pain, has taken his interest in the Occult and mixed it with humor and unique artist abilities to conceive some of the coolest hats, t-shirts, and even Polos available on the Internet. While the brand may be an online only, word-of-mouth (that’s right, no advertising) streetwear clothing line, this niche company has become a cult favorite on both the West and East coasts since its 2006 inception.
I’m one of the new additions to the Style section of Artist Advocacy previously posting “Wormhole” in Street View and am so ecstatic to be a part of the team. So I thought I’d introduce myself: I’m a 19 year old student from England studying Fashion Communication at Liverpool John Moores University, which is a wonderfully artistic and broad-cultured city helping me develop my creativity. But then I have the beautiful contrast of the farming town Nantwich plastered with breathtaking landscapes, where my family are living, giving me a taste of the country life as well as the city.
Scouting the streets of Liverpool on the hunt for eye-catching, interesting and trending looks, I found a hand full of scouse citizens sporting heavily music influenced styles, with them mixing leather, denim, vintage, brands and band tee’s contributing to the varied music culture we have today.
So since this is my first post, I thought I’d introduce myself. My name is Andreina and I’m from Venezuela, but currently living in Buenos Aires, Argentina. My bachelor’s degree is in Social Communications and I also studied to be a Fashion Stylist. From now on I’ll be showing you this side of the world, through Artist Advocacy, in terms of fashion, trends, and personal style. I hope you enjoy this as much as I will.
Fernanda Pereira began her studies in Lisbon and London. Currently she owns a shop in Lisbon called Galeria de Exclusivos, selling limited edition pieces. Her use of color and organic lines help create an avant-garde line of women’s wear and accessories. Pereira’s collections eloquently show her love of creating and movement. Each piece evokes a sense of individuality and life.
