“No matter how a piece of clothing looks, it cannot be considered beautiful if, in producing it, the environment is destroyed or people are exploited. When deciding on what to wear, we all have an obligation to consider how it’s made and the impact that process has on the planet and its people.”
The rayon crepe (eco dry cleaning recommended) we used is rescued deadstock fabric that was left over from a larger fashion house. By using deadstock fabric we save hundreds of thousands of gallons of water annually and keep the planet clean.
“I love my job, especially how Christy and Aras are with us. The way they treat their employees, everything they provide for us; it’s really inspiring for me to then come in and do the best work that I can.”
Angelica works on the Christy Dawn bridal collection—the beautiful Athena is one of her favorite dresses to sew—as well as some of the more intricate dresses Christy makes, like the Winslet and the Deyko. What she loves most about the fashion industry is that she has the opportunity to learn something new and different every day. Outside of work she spends time with her three kids, taking them to the park on most weekends. Her middle child turned twenty-nine the afternoon I talked to her so she was looking forward to a big family dinner that night.
