CoastCoast is a new blog/clothing store/ fashion experiment/ art project, that explores fashion, geography, and discarded clothing. CoastCoast will eventually make a map of America through its thrift stores. Every few months, four Parsons grads, living in different parts of the country, will come together to explore a different state. On these epic road trips, they will make a vintage collection inspired by and collected in each of the 50 US states. They will then style & photograph the clothing they find using locals as models and landmarks as backdrops. With a blog, online store, and party CoastCoast hopes to connect past and present, promote reuse, and show how apparel consumption reflects a region's culture.
CoastCoast has already explored their first State, California.
They will be launching their blog and showcasing their first collection by throwing a simultaneous party on the west and east coast. Parties will be held in both San Francisco and Brooklyn displaying the photographs and treasures found on CoastCoast’s journey in California.
The West Coast, CoastCoast launch party will be at
Californian Made Mercantile (formerly RAG)
541 Octavia St.
San Francisco, CA 94102
