After starting my sustainability work in NYC, I now travel between India and the west coast.
Organic fabrics, low-impact dyes, and fair trade practices are the starting point for our brand, and I want to keep connecting with ways to improve fashion as an industry.
I'm the co-founder of an ethical and eco-friendly womenswear brand called Lily of Valley Isle.
Hi, all! Thanks for coming out last night. We were excited to meet some new members and get updates on the various business, philanthropic, and educational pursuits of our group. Bring your mission statements on down, we are in wordsmith mode! Our summer project will be Golda's park, so stay tuned for updates on creating green urban space. Cynthia Alberto of Weaving Hand joined us to talk about her cooperative and generously offered her studio as a Meetup spot for the future, which could also be a fun group activity. Due to the 4th of July holiday and upcoming Ethical Fashion classes, we were thinking the next Meetup would be Monday, July 11th. While the SR2 space at FIT is great, we do recognize it's not easy for everyone to get in the building and appreciate your feedback on needing more clarity in our location postings here on Meetup. If anyone has other spots they think would work, definitely email, we'd love to hear ideas! Thanks and see you soon.
