In 2001, after a 25,000 mile, 40-state road trip, Christopher Festa had the inspiration that he needed to pursue his life-long dream of designing a line of t-shirts, “Festa Tees,” which celebrates the diverse regions, cities, and states of America. Beginning in the summer of 2005, after two years of operating out of his living room, Festa began attending trade shows with t-shirts such as Chicago Girl, Southern Girl, and New England Girl. Dozens over others soon followed and today, Festa T-Shirts are sold in over 600 retail outlets around the U.S and online at

With an appreciation for many distinct places, Festa brings a stylish, yet quirky wholesome flair to all of his creations. In addition to over 200 “Girl” shirts covering everywhere from Maine to San Diego, Festa began to introduce lifestyle and recreation themed tees in 2006, such as the best-selling Caffeine Girl, Happy Hour Girl, Shoe Girl, and Beach Girl. In 2008, Festa introduced its “Keep It” and “Licious” themed t-shirts, featuring local foods and landmarks with the wordplay and imagery unique to the brand.

From an early age, Chris began to appreciate the rare qualities of the places he visited on his family road trips, business trips from his past career in finance, technology, and consulting, and various other expeditions. His favorite places include Wrigley Field in Chicago, the majestic Red Rock and Canyon Country of Southern Utah and Northern Arizona, and the chaotic highways of New Jersey.

It is no wonder that Festa’s company tag line is “We Like It Everywhere,” and Festa won’t rest until Festa Tees reach every corner of the globe!

Meet Crosby Noricks

Hi. I'm Crosby, Founder of PR Couture, Fashion Brand Strategist and PR Girl Mentor. I care about supporting and celebrating fashion publicists as well as helping companies connect with their audiences in more meaningful ways. Recently, iMedia included me in their annual list of 25 Internet Marketing Leaders and Innovators, along with people from Starbucks, Twitter and Volkswagon, which I think is pretty neat. Like Elle Woods, I am a Gemini-vegetarian (that's about where the similarities end). Let's connect: Check out my full bio, Brand Elixir sessions for brands or shoot me a note at
