Powless will showcase six of his new unisex t-shirt designs at the UN3EK SY5TEM 2012 Fashion Show on Saturday. The bill also includes a performance from his band, The Analog Sweat, and work from two other fashion designers: Wisdoma Lifewarrior, Powless' mother, and his sister, Endowna Endwarrior, whose line is called Shiny Moon Creations.
