From the time I can remember, tacos have always been a part of my life. I never realized how much we ate tacos until I moved out of the country (to France) to work. What do you mean you don’t have tortillas here-lol? I thought about Mexican food in general but tacos more than anything. What I would have given to have a homemade tortilla with beans and cheese for breakfast. Don’t get me wrong, the pain au chocolat was pretty amazing and crepes weren’t a bad substitute! But, it’s the little things in life that we sometimes take for granted.
As a taco lover, I was super excited to partner with Taco Creative. Taco creative is a Corpus Christi based company started by Gerald Flores, a graphic designer. His line, Taco Gear, is a taco lover’s dream – everything has the taco theme. His line includes the ever popular graphic tees, trucker hats, and taco accessories.
Having a fashion design background, I was giddy at the thought of designing my own shirt. As fellow creatives, Gerald and I were able to design something that merged our two brands into one. I was able to create a Val Around Town signature shirt bringing two of my favorite things together. It’s not your typical combination and I am sure you will not be served tacos at the next runway show but tacos will always be in style in my book.
If you love to support Texas/local based brands like me, check out Taco Gear and all their specTACOular designs. These make great gifts for your taco lovers and are a different take on your graphic tee.
