It’s about time to kick it off by kicking on your shoes, KEDS that is. Go to their site at http://hdyd.keds.com for a full run of details and a nice spotlight on AAMP. Here’s a bit from their page:
If you use twitter, on Friday or Saturday tweet with the hashtag #KedsHDYDAustin, answer “How do you do Austin?” or “How do you do inspiration?” For every tweet Keds will be donating $1 to the organization.
The Keds area in Style X will have something for everyone. There will be two artists from Austin Art + Music Partnership that will be designing and painting an 8’x8’ mural inspired by your “How do you do Austin?” tweets, along with Emili Adame, a member of the Keds Collective, creating her own designs on Keds white Champion shoes. Does this peak your interest or sound like something fun? We will have (2) kiosks where you can design your own style and enter to win $1,000, plus even more moolah donated to an arts organization. If you are reading this and can’t make it out, you can always enter the Design Your Own Keds contest online at www.keds.com/hdyd. Since this will be a fashion showcase, runway shows will not be left out. Twice during the day on Friday and Saturday there will be models showcasing 2011 Keds, in addition to shoe giveaways.
The local arts organization featured this week with Keds at SXSW is the Austin Art + Music Partnership. They provide support for local artists by giving them warehouse space and resources to develop their projects and ideas. If you use twitter, on Friday or Saturday tweet with the hashtag #KedsHDYDAustin, answer “How do you do Austin?” or “How do you do inspiration?” For every tweet Keds will be donating $1 to the organization.
Come support creativity, inspiration, and FASHION with Keds at this year’s Style X during SXSW.
