I agree with Jeff Peart, the man behind 1of7 limited edition clothing line, when he says that major clothing lines are too far removed from the artist or designer and it was this distance that diluted the final product. That’s why he started 10f7in the first place, with the principle of working closely with artists to ensure that their entire artistic vision is encapsulated on the clothing, with nothing being lost during the process.
1of7 will not release an item until the artist is completely satisfied. “We create only seven pieces per artist, per series”, says Jeff. ” One stays with the artist and one stays with 1of7. The final five are made available for sale, thus providing our customers with a truly unique piece of limited edition fashionable art”.
Some of the artists 1of7 is involved with are from Portland area: Sean Denniston, Squid Vicious, Sherry Peart, Kristen Beatty, Doug Sabbertoothe and Liam Paquin. As each series is released the range of artists will become wider. Jeff informs: “For example, by series VI, I plan on having artists from around the US. For Series VII, I want one artists from each continent”.
So, if you’re an artist and you’re interested in joining 1of7 artist community, contact Jeff by all means!
