“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 (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 work the overlock machines, so once all the pieces of a dress are cut I’m the first person it’s handed to!”The overlock machines are used to close seams together and Kathy has been doing that for Christy Dawn for three years. She likes being the first person to touch any given dress; she feels like she gets to set the next person up for success that way. She is very religious and looks forward to going to church in her free time.
