Back to the Street 

The '80s and '90s are alive and well in Central Oregon fashion. Looks are pieced together with colorful funky styles from REgroup Thrift Store, a nonprofit thrift store specializing in used garments at affordable prices. Complete this look with new pieces from Homeslice and 11th Decibel.

Vajo (Jawher Soudani, pictured in foregound below) is a street artist and graphic designer from Tunisia. He has been doing street art for 10 years in the capital, Tunis. In addition to working for a large advertising agency as a consultant to large fashion brands in the Middle East. He was introduced to the Bend nonprofit Rise Up International while members were filming Push and then traveled around Tunisia and Jordan (with protection from the embassy) facilitating art workshops in which children learn tolerance and creative expression in otherwise oppressed cultural environments. Because of the revolution in Tunisia, it is not the safest place for artists. Vajo is currently living in Bend and pursuing his passion for fusing street art, modern graphic design and fashion. With the help of Mark Rada, Vajo painted the train cars at REgroup Thrift Store for the background of this shoot (seen below). The graffiti reads "community" in Arabic.
