With so many young, trendy parents interested in fashion, could there be a market for hip baby clothes? It’s a question Leanne Ford asked herself a year after graduation, and the answer turned out to be a resounding yes.
Enter Ford’s company: Punkster, a baby line with an attitude.
The company’s saucy, organic onesies with phrases such as “I crawl the line” and “iPood” have wiggled their way to popularity, appearing in the pages of Rolling Stone, People and InStyle and adorning famous tots, including Sheryl Crow’s son, Wyatt, and Kate Hudson’s son, Ryder.
The brand’s appeal is all about its classic wit and style, says Ford, BSS ’03.
“Punkster’s vibe is trying on your grandparents’ clothes and then listening to old rock and country albums in Brooklyn or a barn in Ohio,” she says. “Oh, and that would only be if you were 2 years old.”(Download)
“GIFTED AND TALENTED Everything about Sheryl Crow’s Nashville baby shower was eco-friendly – with emphasis on the friendly.”(Download)
“Foam’s own former fashion editor, Leanne Ford, recently set out to pursue her own passion for design full-time. Her line of baby clothing with an edge, Punkster, first made the scene in 2003, when she would hand dye each piece in a pot over the stove in her Ventura Beach kitchen. From those humble beginnings. . .”(Download)
“Nurturing a Newborn Business
Ford, now 26, launched Punkster in 2003 from her home in Long Beach, Calif. That was more than three years ago—and the journey hasn’t always been easy."(Download)

“Just a little nod to Johnny Cash who died four years ago today…
Instead of sending a Tear Stained Letter or singing I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry, give a shout-out to the legend of all things country with this totally clever onesie from our friends at Punkster.
Word on the street is that Sheryl Crow’s little guy Wyatt loves sporting his I Crawl The Line tee.
So If We Never Meet Again This Side of Heaven, keep on rocking in the wee world! (Ok fine. That’s a Punkster line, too!)"(Download)

Rolling Stone Magazine – October 19, 2006
” . . . . . .But the thrill we’ve never known
Is the thrill that it gets ya
When you get your picture
On the cover of the rolling stone
I’m gonna see my picture on the cover
Gonna buy five copies for my mother
Gonna see my smiling face
On the cover of the rolling stone
It’s all designed to blow our minds,
But our minds won’t really get blown
Like the blow that’ll getcha
When you get your picture
On the cover of the Rolling Stone”
