Modern Misfits Art & Fashion is a collective of Philadelphia based artists, designers, and lovers of fashion. Formed in May 2013, the Misfits have been working toward creating a group for young female artists that fosters creativity and rejects the competition created by society to make artists work against each other to succeed. Modern Misfits is constantly changing and evolving with artists helping each other succeed and transform creative ideas. We strive to change the face of fashion to one that is more supportive of designers and inspires creativity.
In 2013 - 2014 Modern Misfits curated four events at Goldilocks Gallery in Center City, Philadelphia including two Pop-up Shops, featuring refurbished vintage pieces as well as handmade clothing, visual and installation art, and live music. In 2015, we curated three Pop-Up Shops at unique Philadelphia locations including, Tattooed Mom, Bus Stop Boutique, and even opened our own store on beautiful 4th Street for two weeks where we shared our experiences and creations with the community. Modern Misfits also participated in Coldhearted V, a holiday art market at the Philadelphia Sculpture Gym in Fishtown.
Our goals are to continue to to create unique clothing that inspires individuality and spread that opportunity to an even younger demographic. We'd like to show youth that we have the power to change our world and the way our generation is seen. We are the innovators and have the ability to alter our own realities. Modern Misfits will continue to reach out to inspired young people and hope to spread the word, and their clothing throughout the U.S.
