Darnworthy is a social enterprise intending to curb fast fashion and challenge excess consumerism in America. We refashion and mend existing garments, soft goods and materials to prevent unnecessary waste from entering our landfills.
-To alter the consumer mindset to a more conscious and creative way of living
I am a textile artist, upcyclist, and professional stitcher based in Brooklyn, NY. I have been altering my own clothing for 13 years and directly see the positive impact it has on my life. I am a strong believer in using preexisting materials and creating minimal (to zero!) waste in my designs.
The fashion lifestyle I have chosen is based on these principles:
-Create from what's already produced
-Stretch the lifespan of my garments through care and creativity
Not only is fast fashion wasteful and harmful to the environment, low pricing on consumer goods is creating unethical conditions for garment workers abroad. Through my work I hope to raise awareness of ethical fashion, promote secondhand goods, and show there are better minimalist choices over supporting the waste of fast fashion.
