I am a twenty-something year old human, who also happens to be a designer and a young entrepreneur.
After attending a liberal arts college in downtown Chicago, I was not cognizant of what I was getting myself into when I pursued my own clothing line post-graduation— A career path…
Eight days. 1,200 miles. A silhouette worthy of a super-hero distinction. The deeper in Dixie we ventured it quickly became apparent, this truly was our bat-mobile.
Our starting point was the bustling town of Austin, TX during South by Southwest, from there our adventure led us through small southern towns filled with crawfish and beautifully historic plantation homes. The Lincoln MKZ, our filter for culture on another level.
As we arrived in New Orleans, set to the high-energy jazz infused notion of public radio we quickly became acclimated to the local music scene. While dining with the people behind Preservation Hall we learned about the history of NOLA, as well as learning about their spots around the city.
From there, we were treated to an evening of jazz as it should be heard: pouring from the very stage in front of us we were flooded with vintage imagery of life beyond technology. Music in the most raw form possible. *Sits and smiles* We continued to our final music city of Nashville, with equally incredible food and great new friends. There, we spent an evening singing karaoke at a bar slightly out of reach called Santa’s Pub. A great end to our southern adventure.
Our journey led us to meet interesting creative individuals while experiencing local Southern favorites in three cities brimming with vibrancy and culture. Our transport: our very own space ship with four-wheels. One of the most insane features (if I may) was the autopilot function which takes cruise control to the next level, literally, discovering vehicles around you and adjusting our speed based on theirs. Not to mention the panoramic sunroof that allowed viewing the stars at night to be a projected experience… Until the day when I make it to outer space…. THIS is space travel on earth.
