Fashions by Ivette UrbaezHand-printed silkscreened apparel
Born and raised in the Dominican Republic, Ivette Urbaez comes from a long lineage of artisans and craftspeople from whom she picked up her love for design. She learned basic seamstress skills at an early age from a grandmother who taught her how to sew. After moving to the United States in 1992, she attended the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) and studied surface design and accessories.
Ivette Urbaez makes fashion the canvas for her silkscreen art. She brands her original silk screened apparel with her distinctive take on the urban landscape. She pays homage to her home – NYC - by incorporating the hard edge elements of the high-rise city and its underground transit with graphic prints: she splashes fire escapes and escalators over dresses and t-shirts. Another distinctive motif Ivette prints on hoodies, dresses, leggings and tops is slithering, intertwined wires and cables. She softens the edginess in other prints with hot-hued roses and tulips, but the roses often have thorns. Rock & Roll meets Carmen! Edgy, Urban and Hot!
Ivette’s apparel is also available at Wholesale prices.
