And Ralph Lauren is dressing Calvin Klein for the Met Ball.
Jess Rotter started her company Rotter and Friends in 2007 and has been making the coolest musician tee shirts ever since. Natalie Portman fans may know Rotter and Friends from the Captain Beefheart tee she's confessed to loving. And it's just as likely that Woodstock attendees (we're talking the original Woodstock) know the brand from the kinds of musicians she draws on her tees, like Neil Young or Stevie Nicks. I met up with the truly inspiring illustrator on a sunny morning in Brooklyn to find out how she "makes it" in fashion and to try to get some musical advice to impress my friends. Needless to say, I got both.
