Stencil1 and Levi’s® Kids Back-To-School Event With Fashion Mamas®

Levi's® : Back to School Event

Once again, the Stencil1 team was invited for another event with Levi’s. This time the event was a Back-To-School event for kids! A lot of guests included child models, actors, and fashion-forward moms, like The Jersey Shore’s JWoww and her sweet kids!

The kids were given denim jackets and t-shirts and had the opportunity to have it customized by Stencil1. It was lots of fun engaging with the kids and allowing them to explore their creativity to design their very own jacket. They all had great ideas and their one-of-a-kind item came out amazing!

DIY Kids Back-To-School Denim Jackets

DSC08667

Get your kids back-to-school ready with custom denim jackets that compliments their style and personality! With these denim jackets, your kids are guaranteed to be the coolest kids in school. Trust me, they’ll thank you later.

Start prepping your jacket by adding a piece of cardboard inside the jacket. This will prevent any paint from bleeding through the jacket.

Using an adhesive spray, lightly spray the back of the stencil of your choice and place it on the jacket. Adhesive spray will help the stencil adhere to the jacket while you paint and prevent it from moving around. This is especially helpful when painting with more detailed stencils. The stencil we are using here is the Stencil1 Headphones stencil.

Grab your paint brush and load it up with paint. Here, we used a bold orange color to compliment the dark blue denim. Be sure to wipe any excess paint off the brush onto a paper towel or plate to prevent any paint bleeding underneath the stencil.

Paint over the open spaces of the stencil using a dabbing motion. Slowly build up the intensity of color with every layer of paint.

Once the stencil has been completely filled, carefully remove the stencil to reveal the final image and allow the paint to dry.

Heat seal the final design according to the directions of your fabric paint to prevent your design from fading.

Be sure to show off your kids with their one-of-a-kind custom jacket and take lots of pictures on their first day!

Stencil1 joined Levi’s for a Hamptons Backyard bash for Shopbop and The Daily. The location was lovely, and guests got to enjoy an evening of music, food, drinks, and games. Guests were also given free Levi’s denim jackets and had the opportunity to have them customized by the Stencil1 team!

Founder, Ed Roth, says “Providing one of a kind designs is what everyone wants now, it’s a luxury in itself to have something no one else has.”

Customization is a big hit nowadays. All the major brands are doing it. Who wouldn’t want a unique item that fits them and their personality? Being able to design and own a one-of-a-kind item is the best part.

“The uniqueness of Stencil1’s customization offering is it’s a personal experience, not an item made by a machine. Myself and my amazing team get to chat with the customer, plan the design together to their specification. It’s a rewarding experience.”

Read what The Daily had to say about the event!

Stencil1 was asked by Levi’s to provide customization in their new New York showroom during this year’s Men’s Fashion Week. The event was filled with buyers and press and Levi’s provided these guests with denim tote bags, t-shirts, and denim shorts for the Stencil1 team to customize.

We created 2 custom stencils for the event, a sun image based on a Levi’s log and a flower design based on a textile Levi’s offers. The party-goers were treated to cocktails and got to request stencil image, placement, and color from the team.

Meeting our customers, networking with creative minds, and creating one-of-a-kind pieces are only a few of the many rewards of our events. To work with major brands we respect is an accolade and we feel honored that they see our brand as more than a commodity but at as a lifestyle brand that aligns with their companies ethos.

Many big brands such as Levi’s, Converse, and J. Crew are offering customization- it’s safe to say this is the new way of business.  We are incredibly happy to be part of this on-going and growing offering.

We invite you to join our mailing list at Stencil1.com to be alerted of our next public event.  If your company wants Stencil1 to curate a tactile customization event, please contact us at info@stencil1.com.
