Frost to a T(shirt)

Andrew Frost Dad Rode a Tiger t-shirt
When Vince Frost (of Frost Design*) wanted to make some extra cash at art college in 1989, he decided to design and print his own range of t-shirts. He printed the t-shirts at his then studio flat above Anita Roddick's original Body Shop store. His sell-out design used an image of his father on his Triumph motorcycle. This same 'Dad Rode a Tiger' image features in Frost's new range of t-shirts.

Andrew Frost Type Rider t-shirt
The new range is made from 100% bamboo (a renewable resource), the material is soft as silk but strong as cotton, naturally hypoallergenic, cooling and naturally anti-bacterial.

The Frost t-shirt range should be available in March '08. You can contact Frost* stockist number 02 9280 4233 for more details, and the t’s will be available online at
