so here it is! the new biz i hinted to last week is..... [drum roll please!] MODify/d
my latest venture with my friend and partner Candice Gold. Candice worked in the high stakes NY fashion industry for years. we met over 10 years ago and consistently talked about doing something together that encompassed our values. she always hated all the waste that she saw in the garment business.... and i've definitely been on board with trying to re/use and be as eco-conscious as i can.... soooo.... last year we started thinking about how we could re/purpose and re/cycle damages, leftovers and samples - things that would normally be thrown away. we get oodles of stuff from white and warren and isda & co to turn into new stuff.
we've been making hats, fingerless gloves, pillows and endangered species stuffies ever since.... it's really fun to try and give new life to things. oh and i can mention that so much of what we work with is CASHMERE. ooohh ahhh soft and lovely.....
here's some other pics of what we do:
