Alumnus Starts T-Shirt Line Based on Iconic Photos of Musicians

Alumnus Ross Riddle recently launched his own T-shirt line, based on music photographer William “PoPsie” Randolph’s work, which spanned more than 30 years from the 1940s through the ’70s. Riddle moved to New York after graduation to pursue his love of music and fashion and stumbled upon Popsie’s photos. After meeting the photographer’s son Mike, who manages his father’s collections and estate, Riddle was granted access to PoPsie’s archives which include authentic, raw portraits of iconic musicians. Riddle was inspired to match these images with high quality, ultra soft T-shirts using a unique printing technique.  The result is Rosser Riddle’s First Collection now available at Saks both in-store and online.
