Storyville

July 14th, 2008

Storyville was founded in Louisiana in 2007 by eleven siblings who were on a mission to support local apparel designers.

Storyville

Starting out with only 10 t-shirt designers, Storyville now represents 70+ Louisiana and Texas designers. Storyville now has shops in Baton Rouge, Louisiana (next to LSU) and in Austin, next to the University of Texas.

Storyville

Many Storyville designers are college students; all of the models on wearyourstory are students.

Storyville

Over half of all sales go directly into the pockets of local designers. As Storyville grows and is able to open additional shops in college towns across the country, the goal will be to create a unique, national click and mortar marketplace for local designers.

Storyville

The shops will allow Storyville to be “on the streets” and constantly aware of upcoming designers, while Storyville’s growing Internet presence will allow Storyville to better represent and promote these designers to markets in which they might not otherwise get exposure. Right now, Storyville is eyeing expansion into cities like Chapel Hill, North Carolina, Tempe, Arizona, Gainesville, Florida and Athens, Georgia.

Storyville

Storyville enjoys checking out online giants like Threadless.com, Snorgtees and BustedTees. Threadless’ community-based approach is especially inspiring. But we Storyvillains feel like no enough attention is paid to local designers (who retain ownership of their own designs, and often also sell through their own websites or sites like etsy).

Storyville

So if you’re interested in checking locally-designed, limited-run tees and supporting local artists, make sure to visit Storyville !
