Building Fashion's Sustainable Future:

A Panel Discussion & Networking Event

Featuring the following female founders

Autumn Adeigbo, Founder & Designer

Autumn Adeigbo leads a cross-cultural collective of women who ethically source, produce and distribute her namesake fashion label. The collection is designed and sewn in NYC, with fabrics sourced from Italy, France, the UK, and Holland, hand-beaded in Kenya and India, and sold via a community of entrepreneurial women. All garments produced already have a buyer, thus reducing both fabric & unsold inventory waste.

Nina Faulhaber, ADAY Co-Founder

ADAY is a fast growing direct-to-consumer brand creating a capsule wardrobe of consciously designed, versatile essentials. We are setting a new standard for clothing by fusing minimal, seasonless shapes with technical fabrics, all made with a huge focus on sustainability and conscious consumption.

Jessica Schreiber & Camille Tagle, FABSCRAP Co-Founders

FABSCRAP provides convenient pickup of fabric scraps from commercial businesses in NYC. By working with an engaged network of students, professors, artists, crafters,emerging designers, industrial processors, and utilizing new technologies, FABSCRAP aims to reuse or recycle fabric scraps to maximize diversion from landfill and compile data on the commercial textile waste stream.

Stephanie Suberville, AMUR Lead Designer

AMUR is a clothing collection created in New York City that was born from the concept that great style does not have to come at the expense of our environment—and that design can strike a balance between beauty and good intentions. It’s an approach that’s woven into the very name: A Mindful Use of Resources.
