I just ran into local artist, Jose Mertz’s website and I found out that he was actually one of the designers responsible for the early entry of Parish Nation into the fashion world. It left me a little off-guard, but its great to learn these things. He recently had some work up at Culture Kings for the launch of their Artist Collective gallery they had a month or so ago. Either way, check out more of the Parish Nation stuff circa 2006-2007, all designs by Jose Mertz. And also check Parish Nation’s site at www.parishnation.com.
