Look familiar? The artwork from our our shirts made the cover of KC Magazine’s style issue this May! I just got my hands on the PDFs. For those of you just visiting the site for the first time, welcome, and I hope you’ll come back often. My goal is to help us all shop smarter by sharing news about fashion that respects people and the environment. And of course, you can buy our organic tees here.

From the magazine…

ON THE COVER: The vintage illustration that graces this month’s cover is one of three in the Fashion Loves People graphic t-shirt line designed by freelance writer and designer Janette Crawford. It was first sketched in 1970 by J. Kirk Davis, a Kansas City-based artist whose work was published in Women’s Wear Daily in the 1970s and ’80s; the mod subject’s angular, popped collar inspired Crawford to incorporate a bold, Native arts-inspired graphic that adds a fashion-forward edge to the overall composition. Crawford launched the line last fall with the goal of helping shoppers “do good” with their purchases by providing three main benefits: eco-friendly construction, donation to a nonprofit ($1 from the sale of each shirt goes to Not For Sale, a San Francisco-based organization fighting human trafficking in the U.S. and abroad), and the philanthropic support of fine art. All shirts in the series are ethically manufactured in Peru and screenprinted in the U.S. by Storenvy using eco-friendly inks. The tees are available locally at Halls Plaza (211 Nichols Road, 816-274-3222), Habitat Shoe Boutique (4569 W. 119th St., Leawood, 913-451-6360), Haught Style (6951 Tomahawk Road, Prairie Village, 913-677-0070) and online at fashionlovespeople.com. Fashion Loves People’s third t-shirt design will be released early this month; Haught Style will carry an exclusive variation.
