I made it out to NYC for Sneaker Pimps NY and the Female Sneaker Fiend “Cookin’ Up Customs” Events. The ladies were definitely well represented with the likes of K. Giovanna, Fetti, D-Nyce, Eskayel, Pink Eye and Pikaso. Lori from FSF put on 3 great events and reminded everyone not to sleep on the ladies!!
Ladies, if you want to stand out from the crowd get some one-off sneakers made by some of these talented artists. Click below to read about each artist and see some of their work. I know I can’t wait for my customs from K.Giovanna and Fetti!!
K. Giovanna Customs
Kate has a sick style and is one of the first ladies in the customizing game. To learn more about here peep here myspace.
Fetti makes some dope-ass creations, everything from the hulk to argyle. What you need? She got it! Fetti trained as an electrician before getting into the shoe game but she puts her skills to use. . . you know, Adidas hooked up with LCD screens in the stripes! Next level shit! Unfortunately my pic of her electric shoes was blurry but you can get an idea of some her skills below. To hit up Fetti for customs check out her myspace.
“E” the Custom Queen of Pink Eye personalizations customizes sneakers, hats, shirts, jackets and more! She also sells her pink chunky chains which I need to have! If you haven’t caught pink eye yet, you can catch it here or check out her myspace.
D-NYCE was in the house and she even brought along some canvases that she worked on – bringing sneaker art to another level. Here’s some of her work and you can check out here site here.
Ms. Pikaso came up from Virginia so we could get a glimpse of her skills, and damn, was it worth it! She did the custom she’s holding below in just a few hours. She customizes shoes, shirts, hats and jeans. She also airbrushes, does portraits and paintings. Check out her site here.
Shanan Campanaro is an illustrator and designer and she has a line called Eskayel. She hand illustrated graphics, hand made t-shirts and tank tops and hand screened them all herself – talented lady! Her tops are really cute and you can check out her work and buy her t-shirts here.
