Apparel industry professionals say that about 15 to 20% of the fabric used in clothing productions ends up in landfills-- it’s simply cheaper to dump the scraps than to recycle them. But zero-waste design strives to create clothing patterns that leave not so much as a scrap of fabric on the cutting room floor. NYC Designer Daniel Silverstein is one of the designers pioneering the art of zero-waste fashion, and doing it in high style. You can find his cocktail-appropriate creations at Yoox and Saks Fifth Avenue. Also, he is a peach to talk to. Every time I see him I practically squeal with delight. Darling, you must meet him! So, join the Ethical Writers Co. next Thursday evening for an intimate conversation over organic wine and cupcakes from Little Cupcake Bakeshop. Ask questions, get a peek at Silverstein's studio, learn about his techniques, and educate yourself as a consumer on how you can positively impact the industry. Then, shop his latest collection with Silverstein on hand to answer all your questions and style you up! It'll be great. You should come. An Intimate Conversation with Zero-Waste Designer Daniel Silverstein Thursday, October 16th, 6 pm 213 West 35th Street, Manhattan, #806 RSVP on Eventbrite.
