Street Fairs in Japantown are Being Threatened!

This past weekend, we were in Japantown, for the Nihonmachi Street Fair. We set up a booth at this fair every year and it's always a great time!! Big ups tp everyone who came by to say what's up, picked up some gear and just came by to kick it!!

We also learned that the Homeowners Association and the owners of the Condo building at the corner of Post and Webster, where the Japantown Bowl once stood, are threatening to try to put a halt both the Nihonmachi Street Fair AND the Cherry Blossom Festival... and even the Fillmore Street Fair!! What the heck??

When I heard about this, it really saddened me. Not because, they insulted me, as a vendor, by referring to the vendors as "purveyors of schlocky souvenirs", but because of the following reasons, which really don't sit well with me...

1. As newcomers to the Japantown neighborhood... you would think they'd embrace the neighborhood, its culture, and the cultural events that have been taking place in the neighborhood for decades.

2. The Japantown Bowl, a Japantown icon, was torn down to build the condos. So I feel it's almost like that building is stripping the life out of Jtown. No more bowling alley, no cultural shops on the ground-floor of the building... and now they want to do away with the street fairs??

3. As a kid, growing up in The City, the Nihonmachi Street Fair and the Cherry Blossom Festival, were and still are an annual tradition.

4. These festivals are in NO WAY dirty. 4fifteen clothing participates in three street fairs annually... the Cherry Blossom Festival, the Haight Street Fair and the Nihonmachi Street Fair... I can tell you that the two street fairs held in J-Town are so clean and well organized. Hands-down.

I wanted to write about this to help bring awareness to this issue. I will do whatever I can to help out in the fight to keep the street fairs in J-Town!!

Meet the CEO of 4fifteen design co

Meet the CEO of 4fifteen design co, Izzie! She Hella Hearts SF, just like her parents and is repping the 4fifteen already... even in her sleep!!

Workin' for The Man...

I'm constantly weighin the pros and cons of working for The Man vs grindin it out on my own. This is something that is ALWAYS on my mind. I've been workin a 9 to 5 and doin the 4fifteen clothing/freelance thing on the side, for some time now. How do you know when it's the right time to quit your full-time job and chase the American Dream full-time? or... is there ever a right time? or... maybe you've gotta suck it up and JUST DO IT? I give BIG PROPS to all those who have made the jump and are doin it!! Anyways... HAPPY FRIDAY!

SPRING 2008 LINE is up!

I just posted the new 4fifteen designs for Spring 2008 on the site. Peep em at Get 'em while they're hot!!

The San Francisco Treat. Inspired by Rice a Roni and Jerry Rice. Two of San Francisco's favorites. Thanks for the memories!!

Gold foil print on the front and classic white on red, a la 49ers throwback jersey style, on the back.

san franciscan. enough said? rep where your from! san francisco aka the 4fifteen! we don't call it frisco. outline of the 49 sq mile city in the background.

wires outside my house. i went outside one morning, took a pic of the telephone wires, denise held up a pair of my shoes and i took another pic of that... put the two together and made it into a hot, new 4fifteen design. it's kinda abstract looking with the silver on black print. came out pretty dope, if you ask me.

fourfifteen cablecar. the spring 2008 remix on a classic 4fifteen design. brought some fresh new colorways for the spring this year.
