Freelance in LA!

Earlier this month, a few of us from the Freelance Fam made the flight from HI to LA for The Venue Tradeshow right in the heart of the Fashion District in DTLA. Fresh off the plane, one of the first faces we saw in the lobby of our hotel was Shepard Fairey, owner of Obey! If that’s not a good omen for this trip, I don’t know what is. Shepard Fairey just so happened to be at the hotel for a small commissioned piece… on the side of the building. This beast was completed in only 3 days, and we were fortunate enough to see the whole thing from beginning to end. [ see the story here ] Then it was off to the show for set up. A few lucky friends at the show got a Freelance tote bag (featuring an exclusive Freelance design by Jeff Gress, POW! WOW! Hawaii) with stickers, and some collection-themed goodies. We got to catch up with good friends. Here’s Jon Phenom with Lady Maximo (fashion stylist for DrJays.com) recording a segment at our booth. And made some new friends. With Andy from IMKING and Martin from Breezy Excursion. Showcasing our upcoming “Universal Hustle” […]

L.A. – We’ll be seeing you again soon!

We’re excited to announce that FREELANCE will be back out in LA this July, back at The Venue Tradeshow for a second time, to showcase our much anticipated collections in the works!

Behind the Scenes: The Venue Tradeshow (LA)

Last week we took a quick trip to LA for our first tradeshow. The Venue offers a stage for up-and-coming independent Brands to showcase their work to Retailers, Media and Sourcing Vendors. It was definitely a valuable time well spent for Freelance! Look for us in several new retail outlets in the coming months. 😉 The Waikiki Cityscape complimented our range nicely! People even stopped by to take photos of our backdrop! Peep that new custom Jellybean tote in the foreground! Chillin with our girl, Bana, who designed our “Lucky Garden” print, and also designs for Streetwear giants (LRG Womens, Crooks & Castles, Diamond Supply Co.) LA loves Freelance! Even Jon Phenom loves Freelance! Tell ’em Jon… Buyers scoping the details and variety of our range. Big ups to Miles for a great experience at the Venue Tradeshow! Good seeing the homie, Tnes with HippoEsthetics Couldn’t visit LA without stopping thru Inglewood for some goodies. The coconut donuts are worth the trip! >> Freelance Brand featured on The Venue Tradeshow website

Freestyle Session 2013 KOREA

It is finally Spring in Korea! Which means jams and events are now up and active again! Today I was at Freestyle Session 2013 Seoul. Top crews in Korea came out to represent, as well as crews from the States. The jam overall was great but it seemed as if it was more of a tourist attraction than a real jam. Nonetheless, the battles were crazy, cyphers intense, and the crowd was hype.

Freelance is coming to the VENUE in LA!

We are super stoked to announce that we are confirmed to have a booth at the VENUE industry tradeshow in LA this coming June! Only 40 hand-selected, independent streetwear Brands from all over the world will be at this convention to connect and expand. We are honored to be the only Brand from Hawaii… and we’re definitely looking forward to this next step forward for us. THANK YOU to everyone for all your continual support of Freelance! We couldn’t do any of this without you!
