Earlier this year, we answered a call for something we never knew we’d need to make: masks. Fortunately, because we have our own factory, we pivoted from dressmaking to mask-making. Doing so allowed us to keep our team of incredibly talented dressmakers employed and provided our community with much needed protection. All together, we upcycled over 40,000 yards of deadstock fabric (and counting!), and donated 200,000 masks to first responders and people in need.
