Appears on every garment
Acclaimed actor, author and philanthropist Ashley Judd and the popular Original Retro Brand have joined forces to launch an exclusive vintage inspired clothing line for the famous University of Kentucky grad. The Original Retro Brand Ashley Judd collection features a variety of women’s fitted premium t-shirt and sweatshirt styles paired with coveted images from authentic vintage University of Kentucky graphics The collection will be sold at retailers including the University of Kentucky Bookstore, Alumni Hall and Fan Outfitters throughout Kentucky as well as online at www.originalretrobrand.com.
A celebrated actor and die-hard University of Kentucky fan, Ashley Judd has starred in 20 films, both box office hits and critically acclaimed independent films, and on Broadway. Judd has also been an active advocate of humanitarian efforts throughout her adult life, the passion for which she discovered during her undergraduate years at the University of Kentucky. While attending college, she majored in French and minored in Anthropology, Art History Theater and Women’s Studies and graduated from UK’s Honors Program. Ashley is presently starring in "Missing," a new drama for ABC that premiered this spring.
As a devoted UK fan, Ashley can often be seen in the stands passionately supporting her UK Wildcats and has been a main stay for years during their much hyped March Madness appearances. She demonstrates in the gym and in her life that her enthusiasm as a UK fan runs deep.
Ashley commented: “I have great passion for UK. It brings back so many wonderful
memories about my life on campus, as well as cherished family stories about generations of my family supporting the Wildcats and higher education. I am very
excited to be working with Original Retro Brand to launch this special apparel line. The images are inspired by my impressions from the 1970’s, listening to my grandparents, aunts, and uncles talk about the Big Blue, their wonderful t shirts from that era and UK images around the Commonwealth. Original Retro Brand has captured exactly what I envisioned for this collection in terms of style and quality celebrating the history and spirit of UK pride.”
