Art & Council @ LA Launch

By garrett

Couple weeks ago I went and checked out Launch LA - a new fashion trade show that was being held at the Barker Hanger in the Santa Monica Airport. Ended up getting a few shots and ran into a couple friends.

Xavier Burt and Michael Carter of Art & Council curated a nice sized pop-up shop and even invited their friend and professional skateboarder, Ray Barbee, to come and perform live.

These boys seem to know every body and they are very good at what they do - curating, creative direction, design, marketing and artist management. You will definitely see more of them in the future.

Check them out here -

Ray Barbee played as a one man band and has a very unique style. It was the first time I heard him play and I was more than impressed. Check this short video if you don't know about him. Dude is a legend.
