Faile_Multimedia_Collage_Collaboration_NY_4

FAILE is the Brooklyn-based artistic collaboration between Patrick McNeil and Patrick Miller. Their name is an anagram of their first project, “A life.” Since its inception in 1999, FAILE has been known for a wide ranging multimedia practice recognizable for its explorations of duality through a fragmented style of appropriation and collage. While painting and printmaking remain central to their approach, over the past decade FAILE has adapted its signature mass culture-driven iconography to vast array of materials and techniques, from wooden boxes and window pallets to more traditional canvas, prints, sculptures, stencils, installation, and prayer wheels. Works on Wood is currently being exhibited at the Allouche Gallery, New York, NY from Nov 15th-Dec 12th so if you’re lucky enough to be in the neighbourhood get down there and see it in the flesh.

Ashley Miller, Lizzie Thomson and Katelyn Brehony are the creative force behind the Brooklyn, NY based fashion label How Very Dare. Founded in October 2011 after a good stint in the fashion industry where they gained invaluable experience and knowledge, they ventured out into the digital print world to create their own garments at an accessible price tag. Patternbank catch up with them here after their recent launch of their new collection Trash to Treasure and find out a little bit about what makes their photo-real label so individual, fun and exciting. Trash to Treasure and previous collections are available to buy from their shop on etsy.

How did you get into the Fashion business, did one thing start your career?

The three of us met while working at Betsey Johnson. Betsey has an energy and a vibrancy unlike any other and she has definitely shaped our careers. We loved working together and after some time we decided to branch out and start up our own label –  How Very Dare.

Where do you get inspiration for your work? What is inspiring you right now?

Inspiration can come at the most random times, on a subway ride, in the middle of the night…We’re lucky enough to live in NYC, a city surrounded by progressive artists and new emerging talent.
Concepts for our collections translate from what is around us, and then we think about how we can lay it down into a wearable print. Our upcoming collection, Trash to Treasure, is based on flea market finds. Items that were once disposable emerge with a new lease of life the second time around. We started with photographs of vintage treasure, then pieced the items together working this concept into a collection of engineered prints.
