Founded in Miami in 2010, Stray Rats blends founder and designer Julian Consuegra’s cultural influences into graphic heavy collections focused on community. Coming of age in the Miami hardcore scene, Consuegra began designing by creating t-shirts, album art, and posters for others in the scene. Taking this experience designing for his peers, and his exhaustive knowledge of pop culture, Consuegra continues to seek and grow community through his work. Creating the name “Stray Rats” to express a central voice for those who felt unheard, the brand has grown from an underground cult following in Miami to an internationally recognized label carried by some of fashions’ most acclaimed retailers. The brand's collections stay true to its roots and include graphic tee, sweats, and hats that reference movies, computers, and video games, all with a punk edge. With community in mind, Stray Rats continues to grow and has an expanding list of collaborators that encapsulates their ethos within each project including Carhartt WIP, New Balance, and Marc Jacobs.
