Constantly striving to highlight women in trades that are primarily dominated by men, I've dropped the ball with Married to the Mob. MttM, began in 2004 as a brand geared towards the female demographic. One could call them a street wear company, but it is evident from it's evolution that it's more than just street wear. The company, created by Leah McSweeney, was not only started by a woman for women-- but the voice of the company was also led by a woman; Tabatha McGurr.
Tabatha McGurr, daughter of Futura2000, has been blogging for the company since it's conception and now, 7 years later, will be dropping her first book. Self-titled, Tabatha in the iconic box logo style that commands attention and refuses to be overlooked, the book is 100pgs worth of collected writings, collages and photographs of Tabatha's childhood and life at the MOB.
The young woman, and flourishing writer will also have a signing next week at The Hole Gallery on April 10th for fans who'd love to get their books signed in person. You can pre-order the book on the MTTM site for $25.
