What you'll do
Fashion and painting is the perfect marriage. Join us at our popular studio in the Chelsea area of Manhattan to talk all things New York and fashion. While we set up your palettes, you’ll have the exclusive opportunity to chat with a real New York City apparel designer or learn what it was like to grow up in Midtown Manhattan. Once we prepare your jeans for painting, we’ll walk you through how to create the customized back pocket designs on your little—or big—tushy pockets. Sip, laugh, paint, and then walk out with a new, comfy, and cool souvenir to take home and wear while you trek around the city. Snap photos and tag us as you tour New York so we can see where you're taking your new jeans.
Mary & Vasu
I am a Native New Yorker who loves to throw awesome events. I co-host this experience with my boyfriend Vasu, a new Dehli-ite, painting and learning the ins and outs of the NY garment district. He attended FIT—Fashion Institute of Technology—and has been a designer in the fashion industry for over a decade. Now we have our own studio and we are making art fun and funky.
All above available for purchase. If you prefer to BYOB, we do charge a $5 corkage fee per party.
All supplies We’ll provide aprons, paint, brushes, cups, and bottle openers.
Where you'll be
We’ll be at our beautiful and funky art studio in the Chelsea area of Manhattan. We’re close to the famous Flatiron Building, the glorious Garment District, and the fun Flower District.
