Billy Reid – renowned Alabama-based fashion designer and former Council of Fashion Designers of America “Menswear Designer of the Year” – has once again partnered with us to create a special, three-design t-shirt series featuring Alabama Gulf Seafood, now on sale at BillyReid.com.
The series includes three different tees, all designed by Reid, and features images and words associated with fresh seafood and the Gulf. Shirts will retail for $56, and a portion of proceeds will benefit the Alabama Conservation and Natural Resources Foundation.
Reid first aligned with us back in 2012 to launch a t-shirt and hat series, which proved one of the most popular Billy Reid has ever done.
“It was easy to find inspiration from the culture and scenes of coastal Alabama for our first collaboration,” Reid said. “I am more than happy to once again celebrate the coast’s Gulf seafood industry, as well as the people and natural resources that make Alabama’s seafood the best in the world.”
Reid has historically designed t-shirts to support various causes, such as Alabama tornado relief in 2011 and flood relief in the Nashville, Tenn. area in 2010.
This series will debut at Billy Reid’s annual Shindig in Florence, Ala. this weekend. In its sixth year, Shindig is a weekend of music, food, fashion and community drawing Reid’s friends, family and fans from all over the country.
“Billy Reid made such a huge impact on raising awareness for on our campaign in 2012, and we are confident 2014 will be no different,” said Chris Blankenship, program administrator for the Alabama Seafood Marketing Commission and director of Alabama Marine Resources. “We are grateful that he is continuing to lend his talents once again to elevate Alabama Gulf Seafood among his friends and fans.”
