ABOUT ECO CITIZEN & FERAL CHILDE
Eco Citizen strives to offer high quality, fair trade, classic fashion design and construction to the eco-conscious consumer. Our mission is to support the planet and its people while encouraging and implementing fair trade practices, sweatshop-free merchandise, and organic fashion products. Eco Citizen promotes a lifestyle choice that goes beyond the traditional allure of fashion, by transcending the self through transparent business practices, while providing fashion-forward and classic clothing for the 21st century woman.
Feral Childe uses creative experimentation, thoughtful choice of materials, and attention to quality construction to make a smart collection of highly wearable silhouettes. Each season, the design process begins with the duo’s collaborative drawing sessions. The drawings become textile prints, and elements are incorporated into construction details such as shaped facings and hems, as well as the buttons and accessories. Fabrics are selected for comfort, durability and sustainability. Feral Childe uses organic cotton and wool, Tencel, soy, hemp blends, and silk, as well as mill-ends, deadstock and overstock treasures. The collection is proudly manufactured in New York's historic Garment Center.
Remember to register at least two hours before the event! We look forward to seeing you there.
