Pratt Institute and the The Brooklyn Fashion + Design Accelerator (BF+DA) have partnered with 360 Wellness for “Wear the Future Here – Conscious Fashion for a Better Life.” They have curated a showcase at The Shops at Columbus Circle to tell the stories of 7 apparel brands at the BF+DA, which we are proud to be part of! Each designer has a different story and business model that promotes sustainability and ethical practices in the apparel industry.
I was recently invited to participate in first-person full-sensory experience to the cultural context of vegetable-tanned leather in its birthplace in a tiny village in Tuscany called San Miniato.
As an artisan, this invitation is obviously a bucket-list opportunity and a welcome catalyst to experiment - to stretch myself in ways I don’t usually have opportunity or resources to try.
