silk screen t shirts

The ironically named Second Congress to Unite Women took place at an intermediate school in Chelsea during the weekend of May 1-3, 1970. I will never forget the intensity of the emotions that were released at the Congress—some of them directed specifically toward me.

Two dozen “Lavender Menace” T-shirts had been dyed and silk-screened at Ellen Broidy’s apartment. Even counting the Vassar students who were coming down for the action (Rita Mae had read her poetry at Vassar to great effect), the Radicalesbians did not expect to exceed that number. Ellen Shumsky got a shirt with scrunched-up letters. Artemis March, arriving with her cartons of “The Woman-Identified Woman,” got stuck with a shirt that came out bright fuchsia. On Friday morning Michela Griffo and Jessica Falstein talked their way into the school, claiming they had been sent by NOW to check out the auditorium’s light board.

Four hundred women were in their seats for the Friday night opening session, listening to the welcoming address, when Michela, hiding backstage, shouted, “Jessie, the lights!”

The auditorium was plunged into darkness. When the lights went back on, seventeen Lavender Menaces were on the stage and Martha Shelley had grabbed the microphone. Posters lined the sides of the hall: TAKE A LESBIAN TO LUNCH. LAVENDER JANE LOVES YOU. WE ARE ALL LESBIANS. LESBIANISM IS A WOMEN’S LIBERATION PLOT.

Jennifer Woodul, one of the Vassar students, watched in amazement as women unknown to the planners climbed onto the stage to join them. Others, some very well known to them, simply got up from their seats and formed an orderly line down below at the open mike. Sidney Abbott watched Ivy Bottini of NOW slowly made her way down the aisle. Then she spotted Kate Millett.

“I know what this oppression is all about—I’ve lived it,” Millett said softly when it was her turn at the microphone.

The Lavender Menaces held forth for two hours that night, and conducted consciousness-raising workshops during the next two days of the conference. Artemis March sold out her supply of “The Woman-Identified Woman.” A bunch of women, straight and gay, caroused happily on Saturday night at an all-women’s dance at the Church of the Holy Apostles. Lesbians would be silent no longer in the women’s movement.

I'm making up a bunch of t-shirts to silk screen for a pop up art show and one of my designs is like a sex pistols/ Linder Sterling inspired thing of harry in black and white with collaged lipstick and stuff and in the sex pistols font it says "I'm having your baby" and if you don't know who it is it just looks like a punk shirt but if I make an etsy to sell that kind of stuff do you think anyone would want to buy them? I do a lot of 1d/hs prints so it'd be cool to sell some

I think these sound AMAZING and you should definitely make an etsy account!!!

Hello everyone!

I, along with Anneka (vieserys), have just launched our first web-based store! We have one product available, listed above, designed by Anneka herself. We’ve been working really hard to ensure that you guys supported each of our decisions and we hope you enjoy what we’ve come up with!

We are selling the shirts for $16.50 (plus shipping, but don’t worry- we researched how much the shipping costs and put the appropriate number so shipping isn’t like $70). The drawing is an original drawing, which will be silk-screened onto a t-shirt.

If all goes well, we have plans to create more products centered around this design (such as temporary tattoos, tote bags, crop-tops, etc).

If you have any questions/concerns/comments, feel free to ask either of us.

Here’s the link for the listing.

Monica getting invited to perform violin at Carnegie Hall and T'Challa telling Bucky he's going a big overboard making homemade posters + flyers to promote the event, yet he was the one who bought out a billboard to promote his daughter's big night

“It’s a violin performance, not a baseball game.” T’Challa says while he orders a skywriter. 

Bucky continues silk screening ‘So Proud of Monica’ t-shirts and looks up at him. “Do you think Michael’s is open? Because I need glitter pens.”

T’Challa pulls out his phone to check. “Now that you mention it, I did want to make her a bracelet…”

Meanwhile, Monica is just watching them from the stairs like “If y’all don’t go to bed…”

In SoHo’s deepest heartland, on Spring Street near West Broadway, 100 percent polyester double-knit shirts are being snapped up by 23-year-olds for $74 apiece. “They’re very ‘Mambo Kings,’ very retro,” said Joseph Melendez, the manager of Union, the 300-square-foot shop that throbbed with hip-hop music on a recent Friday afternoon.

Union also carries regulation blue nylon mail-carrier jackets with U.S. Mail patches ($110) and shapeless brown shirts with the yellow logo of the United Parcel Service ($42): “American work wear, utility kind of stuff,” said James Jebbia, an owner.

These unlikely clothes are among today’s totems of cool. Some even say they’re a reflection of musical tastes.
“I can tell what kind of music people like by what they wear,” said Jules, a young man who refused to give a last name.

Jules, a deejay at Lucky Strike, a downtown bar, and at Shaft and Sugar Shack, downtown nightclubs, had just Rollerbladed in “to see what new stuff they had.”

Mary Ann Fusco, who owns Union with Mr. Jebbia, said: “We’re more on the hip-hop tip instead of the techno-rave kind of thing. It’s a certain kind of street vibe.”

The store also carries a mix of dressier English knit shirts and trousers and American street wear. “It isn’t really underground anymore, because hip-hop’s so mainstream now,” Mr. Melendez said. Various small companies based in London, like Duffer, are well represented, along with Americans labels like Conart and Pervert.
The name of the store is meant to convey the inclusion of diverse trends under one roof, Mr. Jebbia said.
Ms. Fusco, a native New Yorker who lives with Mr. Jebbia, a Londoner who moved to the United States nine years ago, are also partners with Shawn Stussy, a California designer, in two stores that sell his clothes: Stussy on Prince Street and the Stussy Union in Los Angeles.

Union does not regard itself as high concept. “It’s just what we and our friends like,” said Mr. Jebbia, who, with his black knit polyester shirt and close-shaved head, looked like a latter-day Teddy boy.

Ms. Fusco said, “When we opened Union in 1990, there was nothing with this kind of feel.”

There are a lot of 70’s-influenced items, like skimpy white T-shirts silk-screened with images of Brigitte Bardot and pairs of red lips ($46). “Next season, Urban Outfitters will have them,” Mr. Jebbia said.

Vicky Kraiem of Flatbush, Brooklyn, bought a pair of hip-hugger bell-bottoms by Mozart of London ($84). “For barbecues and going down to the shore,” she said. She described them in language straight from the 70’s: “very cool, very funky, very 'with it.’ ”
Her friend Cindy Gindi tried on a patchwork top made of crocheted squares with crisscross leather thong ties ($45) that could have been worn at Woodstock. “Somebody’s grandmother makes them for us,” Ms. Fusco said.
Roger Lindsay, a salesman for Isaac Mizrahi, and his colleague, John Seery, the assistant to the president of the fashion house, wandered into the store. Mr. Lindsay called Union’s sensibility “sort of funky urban chic with an ethnic twist to it.”

Mr. Seery spotted the crocheted top but did not associate it with Woodstock. “Oh, Dolce & Gabbana did that,” he said.
