Background

About Rachel

I have an idea for a sustainable clothing company. I am a mechanical engineer by trade, but am immensely interested in fashion. Too much of what is out there is hempy, completely unaffordable, or a public relations stunt (H&M). I want to find the middle ground - source completely sustainably (deadstock, PET textile, recycled cotton textile, etc.) and manufacture locally (utilizing resources like Makers' Row), but also make beautiful clothes. Close the loop and all that. I really like the aesthetics of Illustrated People, Yohji Yamamoto, & anything 70s, essentially. I also have ideas of infusing art& music into the culture of the company. Right now it's just an idea, but I'm looking for somebody who's into this as well and wants to help me develop and make it happen! If you're a designer, that's even better.
