Art & Fashion On South First, 9/26

If your realm of interests includes art, fashion, music, DIY, sustainability, social responsibility, extreme sports, drinking and/or socializing (which by our count should include everyone, unless you are just a wholly uncultured, anti-social, Austin-hating person), then be sure to mark your calendar for the 26th of September when all of these elements will collide in a dual grand opening event. Envy Boutique and Under Pressure Screen Printing will be jointly celebrating their respective store debuts by throwing a massive extravaganza, aptly titled Art & Fashion On South First, next Saturday from 5-11pm in the Golden Slipper Village on Mary and South 1st Street.

Envy is the newest boutique clothing store south of the river, featuring a quirky and diverse array of unique pieces. From chic to street to boho and everything in between, this will be the next big boutique destination in Austin. Travel south down South 1st Street, and just as you pass Mary Street, you’ll spot it  – Envy’s unmistakable green building. Joining Envy in celebration of their recent opening is Austin’s newest hands-on screen printing concept store, Under Pressure Screen Printing. With the option to bring goods from home or purchase blank garments in the store, Under Pressure allows its customers the freedom and creative flexibility to design custom screens. With a free screen printing workshop every Thursday night  from 5-10pm (and free beer while it lasts!), Under Pressure is an establishment set on cultivating the DIY passion in everyone, artist or not. Best of all, Under Pressure is one of the only screen printing shops in Austin that maintains a firm stance against environmental and social injustice, offering environmentally healthy materials that are 100% sweatshop free.

The Art & Fashion On South First event next Saturday will live up to its name, with a series of fun diversions and goodies aimed to please. The highlight of the event will be a full fashion show sponsored by Cream Vintage and Frenchy’s Beauty Parlor at 7pm. The evening will also feature a skateboard half-pipe demo, art exhibits, local handmade jewelry vendors, free drinks, raffles, and live music from Austin acts Wire Tree, The Bubbles, Holy Fiction, Frantic Clam, and Johnny Whutnot. To top it off, Under Pressure will be setting up their screen printing services, so bring your printable items or choose from Under Pressure’s cotton goods and recycled poster paper to customize.

Whether you prefer to create your own art or admire that of others, Art & Fashion On South First will be the perfect opportunity to whet your inner art and fashion cravings.
