Chicago Creatives just released a brand new interview with our good friend DaveTheSLKR in which he talks about starting the SLKRS brand, how hard it is to find funding, the next venture for Los SLKRS and much more. Read an excerpt from the interview below and read the full interview on the Chicago Creatives website by clicking HERE.
What’s next for SLKRS?
I’m partnering with my friend Aldrin, owner of Kasa Silkscreening Inc., and we’re working on a print workshop, kind of like a paint and sip but with screen printing. We plan on hosting these pop-ups all around the city soon. I also started working on a collection that I hope to release in the beginning of the year with a video lookbook that will be directed by Miguel Cisneros (Unsung Media). This is the first collection where ill be expressing myself in regards to how I’ve been feeling about recent trends. I’m tired of clothes looking the same, and I felt like I was stuck in that space where I wasn’t thinking outside the box. I feel like a lot of people don’t understand what it’s like to follow your dreams, and this collection reflects how I’m doing it with a latino twist.
To celebrate the release of the new interview, DaveTheSLKR cooked up a new limited edition t-shirt. Pics of that shirt can be seen below. You can pick up that up along with other Los SLKRS items on SLKRS.com.
