Getting into gear

It’s been a typically varied week here on Voodoo Street.

This week we said goodbye to one of our elders, a 90 year-old much loved mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, who, in spite of her frailty (and lack of interest in popular culture post 1945!) was still championing Voodoo Street in her final days!   Kath, you will be missed.

We also attended a hot rod meet (Greasy) and saw some pretty incredible cars and truly stylish people, showcasing their tattoos, hairdos and vintage style to perfection!   Looking forward to meeting them again.

We now have stock and have been busy photographing garments on our old school shop mannequins.  We find that these are less troublesome and display far fewer diva qualities than living and breathing models.  As our followers on Facebook and Instagram will have spotted, given a little attention, even these mannequins can become narcissistic, as our mannequin “selfie” proves!

We have more stock on the way, courtesy of some extremely talented screen printers, namely Get a Grip, who work tirelessly for punk rock bands and indecisive clothing companies…ahem.

They will be bringing to life the awesome artwork of one Dan Bowden, a Brighton based illustrator who more than satisfied our brief to produce a limited edition ocean festival poster launching the Voodoo Street brand.  The hand pulled, water based screen prints will imminently be available on our organic cotton T-shirts.  We hope that their base on Floodgate Street is an omen for our sales!  Keep an eye on the website for updates.

We are also pleased to see that word is spreading.  Only this morning, I walked past someone wearing a Voodoo Street T-shirt and spotted a mint VW van bearing one of our stickers.  Makes all the hard work seem worthwhile.
