Caught the end of this yesterday, and came back to listen to the entire show today. Could this and will this be a contin uing discussion on air? Hazel Clark offered critical insight into the multitude of approaches to sustainability in fashion in our global world. A treat, indeed! Looking forward to more!

I called in, love WNYC! I'm all over upcycling. I buy near perfect vintage silk scarfs and make silk tops out of them. You just can't find colours and patterns like that today. wwww.lucyfrend.com

I have a boutique in Brooklyn dedicated to sustainable fashion: www.kaightshop.com. I'd love to hear any thoughts/questions on the topic.

Thanks!
Kate

I know there are designers at can restyle that "what do I do with my wedding dress" into something one can wear for other occasions...

This song glamorizes thrift shopping... love it!
It also makes a statement about paying $50 for shirt.
