I was recently contacted by Amber regarding a kickstarter campaign for her and her friend Raye’s company Dead Pastel.
“Dead Pastel is an alternative clothing brand that combines a creepy cute aesthetic and is available in extended sizes. The style is inspired by brands like Lisa Frank and Hello Kitty. Someone once described it to me as ‘Hello Kitty meets Tim Burton’. It had originally started out has just some stickers and stationary, but when Raye got involved, we started brainstorming ideas on where we could take the brand, and I said my dream goal was to have a plus size clothing line, to create clothes I’d always dreamed of wearing, but were never available in my size. So, that’s what we’re gonna do, starting with t-shirts!
We’ve launched a Kickstarter campaign to help us get started, and we need all the help we can get. We thought perhaps you and your readers would be interested in checking it out!”
Here is the link to our Kickstarter: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/503399478/dead-pastel-spring-2014-collection
I Love their designs and I cannot wait to see more! I’m giving them some money today because it means so much to me to be able to support indie businesses and designers and Whoa they have cute stuff! If you can support, please do. If not, please spread the word.
