The big launch

by Amanda Bedgood

Local T-shirt brand takes off Wednesday

Hemline is known for their eclectic blend of what's trending now from boho locally made necklaces to sleek nationally beloved brands. On Wednesday the store plays host to the latest local endeavor in fashion - monTEES.

The launch party for Montomgery John's new line of amazingly unaverage T-shirts is from 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday at the River Ranch store. John's shirts mix basic cotton with unexpected fabrications and make wearing a T-shirt as fashion forward as it gets. His mom (yes, that Aimee John who rocks her own designs) killed it at the IND Style Awards in one of his tops with contrasting sleeves that matched her fringe-covered pants. We could see his T's with everything from little leather skirts and funky palazzo pants to the fall's must have waxed denim and cut off shorts.
