Unique, hand-painted designs, mostly inspired by Rockaway Beach, NY, screen-printed on apparel. All garments are fully made in Rockaway Beach.
Description

Life Eclectic Apparel is a lifestyle brand for men and women based out of Rockaway Beach, New York. We are an artisan-style small business where everything is made by hand, one by one. The line has three main categories: graphic t-shirts & sweatshirts, handmade beachwear, and vintage revived woven goods. Every graphic design incorporates hand painted elements and is inspired by life in Rockaway.  Each shirt is hand screen-printed one by one.  The beachwear is comprised of original designs that are hand drafted on paper patterns and then hand sewn right here in Rockaway Beach. The same dedication goes into the hand-woven techniques of the vintage revived items. All designs are unique and created with meaning that will outlast any trend. 

Owner's Story
Liz Speer created all aspects of the line from sketch, to drafting the paper patterns, to hand designing the prints on the garments. Liz's background is in women’s apparel design. She worked in the iconic Garment District in Midtown Manhattan for over 8 years as an apparel designer and handled some CAD/textiles prints as well. Originally from California, Liz has lived in many cities up and down the coastline. She graduated from San Diego State University and later earned a Masters in Fine Arts for Fashion Design from the Academy of Art University in San Fransisco. Growing up she always made her own clothes and clothes for her beloved dogs. Liz has fallen in love with Rockaway Beach, New York, and drew from it as inspiration for her business. She started off by hand sewing women’s beach tops, and designing and printing two graphic t-shirts, which she sold on Rockaway Beach. She has since expanded apparel business to other locations.
