Rockeverywear FashionTruck Launch Party at Crave Downtown

Rockeverywear FashionTruck Launch Party 
by Brit Charek

You may have already seen the Rockeverywear FashionTruck around-- at Crafty Mart, Oddmall or even after a late night at Thursday's Lounge, but this Sunday, June 8th from 12:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Rockeverywear is hosting a public launch party to introduce the City of Akron to the FashionTruck.


Ryan Weiss started his eccentric hometown based clothing line in an Akron garage in 2005, and after nearly a decade of growth, he saw a need to show a greater love to the city that had supported him, thus became the plan for the FashionTruck.

Modeled after a food truck, but instead delivering Rockeverywear apparel and art, as well as being a mobile center for showcasing other great local artists and musicians, the FashionTruck came to fruition thanks to a successful Kickstarter campaign. The truck itself is wrapped in vinyl graphics designed by Ryan, and is stocked with Rockeverywear merchandise, an XBox 360, two flat panel TVs, and a custom Rockford Fosgate sound system with interior and exterior speakers.



Weiss sees the launch of the Rockeverywear FashionTruck as an opportunity to thank his city, while giving him greater accessibility, and to begin the expansion of Rockeverywear, taking his love of Akron and local handmade goods to a greater audience. 

This event is "for everyone whom we've connected with in the community, the community of Akron that has given us so much support in getting this project off the ground," says Weiss. "We want to take this opportunity to spend the day celebrating with you in the launch of Akron and Rockeverywears' own FashionTruck! So please, bring your friends and family and spend the day partying with us." 

The party will take place outside of Crave, 57 E. Market St. Akron, OH 44308. Along with the launch of the FashionTruck, the event will include live music by local artist DJ Kidd Genius, RetroDog food cart, vendors, games, raffles, an XBox 360 tournament, as well as access to the bar at Crave.
