Cat fashion pioneers Pretty Snake have been dutifully churning out their enormously popular feline fashions - from their one-of-a-kind Cuckoo Cat Sweaters, to adorable totes, Mutant Kitty Tees, cat leggings, and more - to the delight of the kitty loving Etsy masses since 2010.
Recently, P.S. designer Joseph Aaron Segal decided to expand the ever-growing collection, with a knockout pair of "Kitty Garden Party" leggings, which are poised to become one of the brand's most covet-worthy items yet. The problem? While all of Pretty Snake's previous designs are handprinted, the leggings require expensive outsourcing (within the U.S.) to create the digitally printed fabric. In order to keep the dream alive for cat lovers who are drooling over the squee-inducing design, Segal decided to launch a Kickstarter campaign to fund the project (a cat fashion first?), asking fans to help make the leggings a reality. The promise is that if he reaches his goal of $5,000 by July 3rd, the garden party leggings will be unleashed for all of the world to enjoy.
Contributions can be made starting at $1, with gifts given for donations of $25 and up. The minimum pledge amount will garner you a Limited Edition Rainbow Foiled Snake Print Tote, while $150 will net the tote bag, along with a Limited Edition Rainbow Kitty Mountain Print T-shirt, a black canvas tote bag with Golden Mutant Kitty Print, and a pair of the "Kitty Garden Party" Leggings in your choice of sizes.
As of this writing, the quirky project has already generated the interest of 20 ailurophiles, who have pledged nearly $1,000 towards Segal's lofty goal.
