THE PEOPLE BEHIND IT

RICK DAVY, for over 14 years has successfully run Fashion Week Brooklyn, a product of Davy’s BK Style Foundation. BK Style Foundation is a nonprofit that focuses on building fashion entrepreneurship in the low income community. It’s uniquely Brooklyn counter-programming aims to level the 76 year old largely Manhattan-centric affair.

BRIDGETT ARTISE, owner, author and designer of Born Again Vintage has pioneered Upcycled Fashion into the fashion world since early 2000s with her book BORN AGAIN VINTAGE. She created one of the first sustainable classes at FIT and has been dubbed Vintage Expert by NY Times. Her brand is 100% sustainable and has been from day one!

what it is?

This 6-day event will be live streamed online with a fashion showcase each night of emerging sustainable designers, established sustainable designers and vintage collectors. Unlike your typical Fashion Week, this platform will also host a virtual sustainable product lounge, a sustainable fashion panel, and more importantly, a sustainable fashion exhibit giving visuals on what is sustainable fashion and why its the future of fashion.

THE IMPACT OF FASHION ON THE ENVIRONMENT

FAST FASHION AND THE INDUSTRY

The fashion industry is in crisis, partly because of fast fashion and partly over consumption. We are producing at alarming rates and buying at equally alarming rates, what that creates is a recipe for disaster. How and where we make our clothes adds a toxic mix, making the fashion industry 2nd to oil as the most polluting industry!


Sustainable Fashion Week is a necessity to bring awareness to this ongoing problem while providing a platform to emerging sustainable designers that we are in desperate need of.

Where will it take place?

This 6-day event will be fully live streamed with the possibility of a physical component (based on how the current COVID-19 situation evolves) in both NYC & NJ. The event will consist of a fashion showcase each night of emerging sustainable designers, established sustainable designers, and vintage collectors. Unlike your typical Fashion Week, this platform will also host a sustainable product lounge, a sustainable fashion panel, and more importantly, a sustainable fashion exhibit giving visuals on what is sustainable fashion and why its the future of fashion.

Without the support of institutions, corporations, and businesses that understand the need for this platform we will continue to celebrate an industry that is killing our planet. It is time to engage the masses on what we ALL can do to make Sustainable Fashion our ONLY option.
