Nick Automatic was borned in the streets of Cebu back in 2009 and have since evolved into one of the most recognizable independent shirt brands in the country. With a strong line-up of designs, Nick Automatic continues its promise of hand-drawn domination by being present in markets such as Manila, Davao, Hong Kong, Dubai and Riyadh.
Similarly, Don’t Blame the Kids also started with very limited means initially operating online exclusively. Starting small through mall meetups handled by just two brothers, DBTK now has an extensive team, now available nationwide and even across other South East Asian countries such as Malaysia & Singapore.
As a brand that started in 2012, DBTK looks up to Nick Automatic as one of the early pioneers in the clothing industry. Having resilience and perseverance, we also stepped up and elevated our game and they took notice aon what we were being able to do. Fast forward late 2017, we’ve finally linked up together and we both knew that it was but right to establish a collaboration and we didn’t just want it to be like any other partnership that we’ve seen was done before so we really took the time to prepare something special, and something we all can be proud of.
Now here we are with our tools sharpened and our creative juices flowing. We have prepared a heavy collection with 11 distinct pieces that embody what we are both known for and one will witness how we were able to utilize on the designs having references from the things we are very much interested in and we’re really excited to unveil them to you guys.
As supporters of the local Hiphop community and Nick Automatic being advocates of Rock n’ Roll, the mixture and blend of music genres also came into play. Now we have officially organized an event and we want this to be an inclusive one where everyone will feel warmly welcomed.
We have a lot in-store for our attendees and it is our priority to accord them the best possible experience. Apart from the awesome merch that’s up for grabs, we have extravagant raffle prizes, a huge lineup of great performers and overall a program that none of you would want to miss.
That being said, we want to invite all of you to our Collaboration Launch + Event Party entitled ‘Fusion’ this coming August 3 @ The Pop-Up! Katipunan
