During my recent trip to NYC, I had the chance to visit FABSCRAP at their garment district location to meet with cofounder Camille Tagle. FABSCRAP is addressing textile waste problem in the fashion industry by collecting, sorting and reselling (or upcycling) unwanted textile waste in the local NYC garment industry.
Perusing through the New York Times recently, I stumbled upon the story of Zelda Wynn Valdes, a fashion designer who outfitted such incredible illuminaries of the 20th century as Ella Fitzgerald, Josephine Baker, Ruby Dee, May West & Marlene Dietrich. Despite starting her career in the years of Jim Crow segregation, Valdes nevertheless strove to do what she wanted to do: create beautiful clothes for women of all shapes and sizes.
