------------------------- Lost a button? Popped a stitch? Want to Upcycle that Old shirt into a bag? Isabel Varela will be giving D.I.Y. demos all day and can help you upcycle your goodies!
Need those old trousers to be shortened or maybe a little nip and tuck in the waist? SewSustainable Alterations will keep your clothes longer by making alterations easy and convenient. Have an old flame that needs re-kindling? Custom Collaborative will have a menu of customization, personalization, and costs for your pieces in need of some love. You’ll have to temporarily part with these as the CC team works their magic… In the market for new Fair Trade and Sustainable products? We will have a few of our own NYC Fair Trade Coalition members at the Pop-Up selling products and some with lucky giveaways!

The Fashion Revolution Manifesto: “We are Fashion Revolution. We are designers, producers, makers, workers and consumers. We are academics, writers, business leaders, brands, retailers, trade unions and policymakers. We are the industry and the public. We are world citizens. We are a movement and a community. We are you. We love fashion. But we don’t want our clothes to exploit people or destroy our planet. We demand radical, revolutionary change. This is our dream…” WHO IS NYC Fair Trade Coalition?
