Spreadshirt & CafePress team up to fete Iconic Fashion Staple
Jun '10
Fashion's most popular, enduring and expressive wardrobe staple – the beloved T-shirt - will be feted on the first day of summer, June 21, 2010, in a three-city public celebration marking the third annual International T-shirt Day.

With events designed to celebrate the unique expressive nature of the T-shirt, customization leaders CafePress and Spreadshirt have joined forces in this day of celebration. This year free, public events will be held in Boston, Berlin, and New York City. And for those that can't attend the festivities in one of these host cities, a T-shirt Day Supporters Kit is available online, allowing anyone anywhere to throw their own virtual party.

Along with complimentary drinks, snacks and the opportunity to mingle with fellow T-shirt enthusiasts and fashionistas, each event will feature:

• An “open runway” where attendees can rock their personali-tees on the red carpet and get a photo keepsake snapped of their model moment.
• Free T-shirts (both pre-designed and design-your-own) that guests can add to their collections to commemorate the occasion.
• A showcase of tees from top local and global fashion labels.
• T-shirt photos and stories posted on the International T-shirt Day Facebook page throughout the day.

International T-shirt Day events are free and open to everyone, but space is limited and RSVPs are highly recommended. RSVP on your city's page:

• T-Shirt Day Boston
• T-Shirt Day New York
• T-Shirt Day Berlin
