In the summer of 2003, rocking out at Cornerstone, a music festival in rural Illinois, the creators of Local Celebrity had an epiphany. They decided to drop their day jobs and start up a t-shirt company; thus Local Celebrity was born. Packing their bags, they headed to San Diego, buying a screen-printing machine, maxing out their credit cards, teaching themselves to make t shirts, all in the comforts of their grandmother’s ranch. Not long after, they moved out to Los Angeles and into the glamorous downtown area known as Skid Row, and have been making magic there ever since.
Local Celebrity prides themselves in making all their products from scratch, producing it right from Los Angeles.
