New Orleans as Yearly Check on Shirt Design
I attend the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival annually and so do almost 500,000 other people. It is interesting to stand back and see what folks in the crowd of all ages are wearing to a casual t-shirt type event, and always interesting to see what the Jazz Fest merch looks like.
On both fronts one continues to see simple designs: one color, distressed, and tonal prints rule the day. Even multicolor designs tend to be in muted colors and soft and simple seem to be what folks want still.
