THREADS OF HABIT | Up-Cycled Fashion, NYC

Founder Halima Garrett’s love for second-hand clothing began in the 90’s when her grandmother owned a donation-based shop in Brooklyn. This eventually inspired her to open a vintage clothing shop and continue chasing the thrill of the thrift. Garrett now deconstructs vintage pieces to reconstruct garments into one-of-a-kind pieces.

The fashion show is in partnership in partnership with kargoe NYC, 1857 Spirits, and The Stewardship Report.

We use only potatoes grown on our family farm and water from our own spring to create 1857 Vodka of singular quality in the Barber family tradition of excellence. They recently won a gold medal for their classic vodka from the  Micro-Liquor Spirits awards, listed in the trade press as one of the top ten competitions in the world.

“We are delighted to have The Stewardship Report on Connecting Goodness, the communications platform of The J. Luce Foundation, be a media partner of this sustainable fashion show.
