Are you on an eternal quest to find the perfect t-shirt? Certain it exists, but just haven’t found it yet? Life’s too short, save yourself some time and make your own, on the spot, at Yr Store in Shoreditch’s Boxpark pop-up mall. The techno-brain behind Yr is Luma, leaders in interactive design technology who make things like digital graffiti walls, and what you see here is a YrTakeover event at which creative folk from companies such as Patternity are let loose on the touchpad devices to stretch the concept’s possibilities with a professional going over.
Presumably that makes a change from students armed with an infinite number of ironic slogans, or stag party organisers bent on humiliating the groom by suggesting via a t-shirt diagram that his bottom is a perfect place to store dildos. Producing clothing of superior style and originality is but the work of a moment with a bit of practice and a dash of imagination. Pictures and pre-designs can be uploaded via email and USB, and there’s a range of background patterns already available to get things started. Once it’s all done, the end result is printed on an American Apparel garment. Just behave yourselves, OK?
