Hi Nicole, it’s an honor to have you on the platform. Thanks for taking the time to share your story with us – to start maybe you can share some of your backstory with our readers?
I have been in fashion industry for over 20 years. Started as a designer and opened a manufacture business sometime 2001. Developing and producing for big retail chains and some brands companies such as Ross, TJ, Pacsun, Guess …more… Watching all the trashes with leftover fabrics… I decided to quit. From what I know the best, my practice has been started with fabrics first and still learning and testing… Recycle fabrics, organic cottons… trying to figure out the reasonable cost with better touch and more sustainable. My line is so simple… basic but not so basic.
I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
At first, I wanted to approach the audience as a brand.. but, I realized that I was not ready. There are many organizations and groups in a sustainable world. But, I discovered not many people understand the real part of production world in fashion… Also, not many sustainable brands are truly in care like Patagonia. So, I don’t say that our line is a sustainable line. I can’t But, I would say that we are a pursuer and trying to be more sustainable.
Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
Designing. More 20 years in design, production… I believe I know pretty well that I am doing. Maybe my guts to go for the new journey? Not a fancy sustainable platform that deals with sns influencers for the marketing… I mean trying to be a real maker and care all small retailers.
The crisis has affected us all in different ways. How has it affected you and any important lessons or epiphanies you can share with us?
Shopify. Drop ship for myself. Thinking of increasing homeless population, America.
