Rachel Clore capitalizes on print-on-demand web platforms

You won’t meet many young artists whose designs brighten trendy tops, dresses, jumpsuits, and more available to shoppers around the world. So if you come across Rachel Clore—a 2012 graduate of the Maryland Institute College of Art—stop her for a chat about www.society6.com and printalloverme.com, which invite anyone to upload images that can then be printed onto products. Society6’s offerings include art prints and home decor, while Print All Over Me (PAOM) focuses on fashion-forward clothing.

”PAOM does an amazing job of featuring up-and-coming artists and staying ahead of trends,” notes Clore, who says her collection ”came from imagery collected during a trip to Italy that I juxtaposed with harsh geometric lines, digital and hand-drawn marks, and textural layers.” The impressed PAOM chose to feature her designs on the site and will begin promoting them this summer.
