THE HARDENCO SHRINE X HARDENCO X BLCK PUNK

THE HARDENCO SHRINE X HARDENCO X BLCK PUNK..

Hartford Fashion Week 2015

The show is entitled..THE HARDENCO SHRINE.

 

The Work this year is inspired by Lagos West Africa and Fela Kuti's Africa Shrine.

The shrine shed a light on so many issues that were happening in Lagos West Africa. More importantly it was a way to connect to the people, and hear what they have to say. Sunday night was called Yabis night within that night Fela made it a point to target the political issues within Africa and the world.  This Year has been bombarded with a lot of political issues along with world issues.  This show prepares you to understand his message as well as what transcending the thought of workwear fashion, American fashion, and  African fashion can be. Lagos West Africa is a constant place of exploration, information and dreams. Hartford Denim Company & BLCK PUNK WEARABLE ART together feels that Hartford has the exact same things.....Exploration, Information, & Dreams.

HARDENCO is a high-end workwear manufacturing company dedicated to building the highest quality products for hard workers. Since our founding in 2010, we have matured, our product line has grown, but our operations still remain very small, agile and focused, with only five full-time employees. All our products are made by hand on antique sewing machines in Hartford, Connecticut, a city with a prominent place in America’s rich manufacturing history. Our thread, hardware and most of our denim is made in America. What we build is workwear and we recognize that not all our customers are tradespeople, but we operate as if that were the case. Because we believe that if you are selecting materials, designing and manufacturing with the focus on durability and keeping in mind the aging process of a product, you will inevitably end up with something useful, built with intelligence and care, and from the highest quality materials available.

 

BLCK PUNK WEARABLE ART

      Azua Echevarria grew up in Hartford and has a family history of being involved in

Hartford's art, community & political richness. She is a healer and creator by nature. Her latest creation is BLCK PUNK Wearable Art. A handmade collection of healing wearable art made from recycled materials that crosses global lines, traditional gender rules and explores a conscious mindset. BLCK PUNK.
