We collaborated with journalist and founder of Saw the Sign,Tiffany Hsu, for a special ode to Echo Park’s vibrant street art. Pairing fashion and art with Echo Park locals, this is the first of a two-part series of inspired images.

Jack of All Trades
(Below Left) Chris “Ssippi” Wessman, founder of the Echo Park Woodshop, is a man of many trades and talents. His breadth of work encompasses hand-crafted earrings, skateboards and cutting boards (pictured), furniture and elaborate theatrical sets, such as the one he created for Annie Lennox’s show at the Orpheum Theater. He posed with the shop’s front mural by Cryptik Movement, “a public art campaign dedicated to helping humanity evolve towards greater awareness and understanding.”

Live Your Dreams & Destroy Your Fears
Arielle and Ashley lose themselves in Dream and Destroy’s world of wild whimsy. With their studio located in Echo Park, Dream and Destroy are “dedicated to creating visuals that reference and inspire while playing with lettering, design and form.”
Baby You Can Drive My Car
Marco Zamora’s Converse Blank Canvas Project inspired Tiffany and Arielle’s avant-garde heart strings to flourish. Tiffany’s entire outfit is vintage except her necklace, which is by Zara. Arielle’s blouse is vintage and her shoes are by Report.
In Tacos We Trust
It is perhaps no surprise that Guisados co-owner Armando Dela Torre Jr.’s art is as good as his restaurant’s food. Posed in front of Torre Jr.’s mural, tacos in hand and tummies grumbling, the I, Echo Park and Saw the Sign ladies were joined by musician and Guisados’ own Luis Torrealva for an artful moment in time.
Arielle is wearing a New York Hat Co. fedora, a top by Vince and boots by Seychelles. Ashley’s tee is by Truly Madly Deeply, jeans by True Religion and a fedora from American Vintage in Echo Park. Tiffany’s jackets is from Zara, booties from Target and her vintage dress was her grandmother’s, worn on her mother’s wedding day.

UFOs and Rhinos
Ok, maybe it’s a helicopter taking over Los Angeles in this mural by Slug + Sigie!, but we like to imagine it’s a UFO. And that rhinos wander wildly by the lake. Ashley is wearing a dress by Torn and boots by Puma.
