I picked Manufacture NY for our location because of its industrial warehouse feel. We had access to a huge open space the size of about three football fields with big widows, sunlight and amazing NYC views! It's also the future of Fashion. It's mission is to reawaken and rebuild America's Fashion Industry, foster the next wave of businesses, and create a transparent, sustainable global supply chain.
The shoot also came together really well because we had a great team of people that worked very hard. Everyone was able to add their own creativity and talents and the end result is something I can't wait to show...
Recently, I've been spending a lot of time in Brooklyn. Walking by the Gowanus canal, hitting up the boutiques on Atlantic Avenue, and admiring the graffitti in Bed-Stuy. It feels like New York City is calling me back. It's a call I can't seem to ignore. The energy of the city has always been inspiring and made me feel alive. Anything is possible in NYC...

I just got back from Silver Sands, Jamaica a few days ago. We were there for vacation, but as I'm starting to understand more and more... when you own a business, you are always working on it in some way.

That's basically the story of this collaboration that lead to a few impromptou photo shoots and these great shots. We all jumped int...
We believe that it's more important than ever to know exactly where, how, and by whom the products we buy are made. Have you ever tried tracing the origins of your t-shirt? Do you know who made the last garment you bought? Do you even know where your food comes from? This simple question may prove to be much tougher for the average consumer to find out. Yet how can we buy something without knowing? What if it came from a filthy factory in a developing country, sewn by a 12 year old? What if the fibers were grown drenched with toxic pesticides that polluted the land and seeped into the region's drinking waters? What if wearing that garment or eating that food exposes us to unhealthy levels of chemicals and pesticides?
This leaves us feeling icky :/
