Behind-the-scenes of SFV

Recently, we had the opportunity of shooting with the great Darius Williams of Aquarius Creative Studios for our Summer 2011 collection of rad vintage finds.

Models Ava Martin, Najee Strickland and S. Julian added the fierce. SFV added the fashion. Rachel B. and Kimmie added the fun. Here are a few behind the scenes shots...very soon what you see will be for sale on our site!!

Strange Fruit Vintage is progressing... (once again)

All our progress is an unfolding, like a vegetable bud. You have first an instinct, then an opinion, then a knowledge as the plant has root, bud, and fruit. Trust the instinct to the end, though you can render no reason.

"art is the issue" freestyle (c) 2011

art rises to the occasion
waking when you become complacent
grab the brush it's time for creatin'
poems read.
canvas red
marks made either way
alive at night
you sleep i write
you rest, i'm restless
trying to realize dreams
trust issues with sleep
she wants me to waste away
knowing all the while
i'm just trying to find a way
to be the artist i am at night
during the day.
