These garments feature hand illustrated and rhinestoned designs based on various street lamps located in Los Angeles. The Greater Los Angeles Area has over 200 street lamp designs ranging from utilitarian to highly decorative, with the first electric street light build in 1882 on Main Street. Street lighting provides visibility and acts as a guiding entity through any urban environment. Their symbol as a beacon, their impact on city planning and their elegant forms persuaded me to create this collection in their image.
