Collaboration is crucial to Willie Norris, and since 2018, through the WILLIENORRISREWORKSHOP imprint she has had the opportunity to collaborate with a varied roster of brands, institutions, creators and artists including but not limited to...
X HELMUT LANG (2020) — A seven piece capsule collection entitled "Helmut Langage" that saw deadstock Helmut Lang garments reworked with Willie Norris' signature bold wordplay.
X AWAY (2023) — A collaboration in celebration of Pride month that saw Away’s iconic suitcases playfully reworked by Willie Norris with phrases ranging from “MY BAGGAGE” to "5-7 looks" and "HMU" which both nod to the omnipresence of Away luggage on photoshoots by stylists and hair/makeup teams.
INSTITUTIONS:X MoMA PS1 (2020) — In the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, Willie Norris worked in conjunction with MoMAPS1 to create a t-shirt to benefit NYC Nightlife United. Using deadstock merch, originally designed by Andrew Kuo for the 2018 season of their wildly popular Warm Up series, Willie reworked the tees to reflect the moment with an over-printed text-based design that encapsulated her value-added approach to fashion design and collaboration.
X PLANNED PARENTHOOD (2020) — Using the design format of her wildly popular "WHAT EXACTLY IS HETEROSEXUALITY AND WHAT CAUSES IT" t-shirt, Willie worked with Planned Parenthood of Greater New York to create an informational graphic of a t-shirt that highlighted the the myriad of services that Planned Parenthood and the "CARE FOR ALL" mantra that permeates the organization. All proceeds went directly to PPGNY.
MUSICIANS AND DJS:
X LE TIGRE (2022) — By way of J.D. Samson, Le Tigre partnered with Willie Norris to create a limited edition t-shirt to celebrate their first live concert in 12 years at the This Ain’t No Picnic Festival in Pasadena, California. Willie designed a two-sided tee inspired by lyrics from "My Art" from their Feminist Sweepstakes album.
