BABES RAGE MANIFESTO
OUR MOTTO: BABES RAGE
Babes Rage started as a 1960s inspired Go Go dance trio based out of Brooklyn, NYC. A group of friends with a shared passion for doing the pony, the twist, and the shimmy.
As the group evolved, we envisioned sharing our motto (Babes Rage!) further by creating a collective: a Go Go crew.
The Babes Rage community, or “Go Go crew” stands for BWBTV–Babes Who Build Their Visions. Our heroes are fashion icons, movers and shakers, creatives, pin-ups, performers, style queens, illustrators, make-up artists, athletes, vocalists, entrepreneurs, and independent business owners, just to name a few.
GO GO + FASHION
A huge part of our love for the 1960s and 1970s, (the era from which Go Go dancing first rose to wild popularity), is the fashion that went hand in hand with the dance moves.
We call our favorite fashion “Go Go Fashion.” Go Go Fashion is made up of Go Go Looks. A Go Go Look can be any ensemble ranging from colorful lounge wear, to glamourous showgirl costumes, fringe mini-dresses, to denim flares paired with a vintage-inspired t-shirt.
OUR TEES ARE GROOVY, BABY!
In June, 2020, we launched our first collection of Babes Rage Original Art Eco-Groovy Graphic Tees.
Our garments are sourced from the most reputable suppliers of eco-friendly apparel in the industry. Made in the USA, each shirt is cut, sewn, and shipped by an employee working ethically in a safe environment, making a livable wage.
Additionally, Babes Rage works with an eco-friendly, independently owned screen print shop. Each tee design is custom printed by hand using vegan, organic water-based ink as opposed to petroleum-based ink more commonly used in the industry. Better for the environment, better for your skin!
Our tee drops are special and limited. If you see something you love in your size, go ahead and grab it!
WE LOVE ART
We love art! We love looking at art, we love making art, and we love wearing art. We work closely with commissioned illustrators to brainstorm original concepts exclusively for Babes Rage. Our collective of artists are cutting-edge illustrators you know and love. We believe in representation and equality in the art world, we love supporting artists, and we encourage others to do the same. Art makes the world a colorful place.
By The Babes, For The Babes
Our “By The Babes, For The Babes” approach means we view our tees as more than just apparel; our shirts are a canvas for showcasing one-of-a-kind art designed specifically for Babes Rage by your favorite retro-inspired illustrators.
Our model is cyclical, meaning the more you support us (The Babes), the more we can support your favorite artists (The Babes), the more we can provide our crew with groovy products.
Our goal isn’t to sell massive quantities of the same designs, or reproduce images from the past. Instead we continually commission new art–By The Babes, For The Babes.
IN BABES WE TRUST
Toxicity is OUT! High vibes are IN!
To the best of our ability, we believe in creating and endorsing a non-toxic approach to life, increasing awareness and conscious consumption.
Your body matters to us. We love and support an active (Go Go) lifestyle in the form of dancing, skating, and other fun activities. We treasure taking care of our health, shopping from small businesses, and supporting artists.
Vibe up and shine bright. This is the Babes Rage lifestyle.
