WHO WE ARE
Strictly Featured is a Philadelphia based clothing company that looks to collaborate with local visual artists as a way of supporting and bringing exposure to emerging talent. Every collection we produce is done with a new artist. Our collaborators are able to gain revenue and broaden their reach through our merchandising, product development, sales, and marketing. While SF gets the opportunity to produce some amazing garments that ultimately defines who we are. We are nothing without the artist we are doing this for. We work side by side with our collaborators, allowing them to take the lead so that they can clearly interpret their creative identity to ensure we produce an authentic collection. For our first collection we are collaborating with Ephemeroh. Drew, the artist behind Ephemeroh, is a local artist who has been creating street installations since 2016.
Strictly Featured was started by Jack O’Connor in April of 2015. Jack is a Senior Entertainment & Arts Merchandising Major at Drexel University. Since starting the company, Jack has enlisted the help of several other undergraduates from Drexel University, The Art Institute (Philadelphia) and The University of Michigan to help him grow his vision. Each individual team member brings their own skill set to our company and is extremely dedicated mission of the company. In addition to the SF team we look to produce all our apparel with local manufacturers and printers, especially those who maintain eco friendly practices.
Our first fall collection will be launching on September 10th at Tattooed Mom here in Philadelphia, PA. The 21+ event will be held from 7-10pm and will include a Strictly Featured x Ephemeroh Pop Up Shop, a lunch video screening, food and much more. We would love to see you there! If you would like to support us and/or the event we are always looking to be featured or get shoutout on blogs, websites and social media platforms. We look forward to seeing you at the event on September 10th!
