GEN ART PULSE miami
Dress You Up In Her Love

Nurse the urban hippy inside with unpretentious pieces from a very non-jaded New Yorker Brooklyn poet-turned-designer, avalove.

Peacock plumes, lupin flowers, hummingbirds, and her own poetry are common themes in avalove's designs. Nature-inspired wrap dresses bridge the gap between flower-child and rock star. Want to look a like a modern Janis Joplin without all the heroin, and the crazy? This line is for you. The clothes are smart and funky with a kind of pretty optimism that is increasingly rare in a world knee deep in snark; not surprising, as Avalove's self-professed mission is to create positive, inspiring pieces.

An independent designer, avalove's online store of hand-printed wares is one of those little lighthouses of creativity in a world crowded by merchandising giants with bold-faced names, multiple store locations, and factory-made clothing. Don't get us wrong, a store-bought basic can be a good thing. But these designs, that will make the most cynical city-dweller smile instead of smirk, are even better. - Olivia Purnell

This is my 4th shirt from Avalove—each have been favorite pieces in my summer wardrobe. All have been lovingly worn until the cotton is no more than a whisper! I love these shirts for the elegant and intricate, well printed images, on high-quality beautiful tees in subtle colors. Thank you Avalove! Will look for you in the Chelsea Market.

avalove is an art project. Each piece is inspired by the poetics of life. It's not about fashion, it's about art. I want our customers to know each piece is a special piece of art created for them to feel and be inspired in.

Where do you look to for inspiration?

branches, bodies of water, fields of city flowers, birds and botanics, feathers of all shapes and sizes, nature, nature, and more nature. Poetry inspires the metaphor of the visual images so often the shirts tell stories. Like a drawing in a journal. Or a photograph in a photo album. Marks some kind of place in time in my history mapped out by image.

What are you hoping to say with your line?

I view my prints as works of art and my body of clothing as the canvas. Each print is considered a lithograph. With a master's in poetry, I self-publish my poetry on shirts. A poet's got to make a living somehow. Wink.

I'm trying to take the typical bread and butter t-shirt print and make it into the unexpected, printing on more interesting bodies ready to wear and to make clothes into art we can hang in a gallery, housewares like duvet covers and surfboards as things you hang in museums. i like to collaborate with other artists and designers. as collaboration makes the world grow round.

I'm working on the idea of maintaining a business with a consciousness, whether it's making people happy and feel pretty and positive in my pieces, or creating awareness about a social or political issue, or helping someone be inspired to live their dream.

It's a very small company, nothing is mass produced, everything is printed in Brooklyn, and I maintain that it's hand-made, limited edition, made with heart, and a dream.

NEW THINGS: I'm always working on new cuts, colors, and designs, so always check back for the new pretty things to inspire you to be you! Many of the pieces you buy are very limited edition, meaning buy it now if you like it, because it may be the only one of it's kind! That's the joy of a non-mass produced line, everything is unique like you are.
