Mark Ecko Hands Down My Favorite Designer
So I woke up this morning thinking about what i was going to wear today, and I look in my closet and all I see is Mark Ecko this Mark Ecko that. After doing some research on the clothing designer I ran across some good info about him. Check out his site Mark Eckothey have nothing but the classic shit
Marc Ecko parlayed his graffiti art into a business while still in college, designing handmade T-shirts that landed on the backs of icons like Spike Lee and Chuck D. Attention to Ecko Unlimited became more widespread in 1993, when the initial line of six popular T-shirt designs appeared on Good Morning America. The company soon expanded into the hip-hop, extreme-sport, and designer-fashion markets and also began producing footwear, leather goods, gloves, outerwear, underwear, bags, and a women's collection. Ecko launched his line of sophisticated urban menswear, Marc Ecko Cut & Sew, in 2004, which is distinguished by its knitwear, attentive tailoring, and dressier fabrics.
“In grade school the idea that you could take the skill set of airbrushing graffiti onto T-shirts and then turn it into a business didn't seem possible ... It was definitely a better hustle than working at a Shop Rite, McDonald's or being a drug dealer.”
