Mega fashion house EILEEN FISHER, Inc., is set to unveil their first pop-up retail shop in New York City. The shop, located at the Glass House on 47 Bergen Street in Cobble Hill, will host the exclusive launch of “Remade in the USA” — the limited-edition 500-piece collection created by the CFDA Social Innovator Award Winners.
In partnership with the CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America), EILEEN FISHER created the inaugural Social Innovators Award, offering fashion design students the unique opportunity to work alongside the brand’s designers, merchandisers and social consciousness teams. Winners, Teslin Doud, Carmen Gama and Lucy Jones — each graduates of Parsons School of Design — along with receiving a $50,000 stipend, participated in a 12-month residency project to prototype commercially viable ways to make new designs from the damaged clothes from the GREEN EILEEN recycling program. The three top design school grads were committed to socially conscious design and helped to move the brand’s VISION2020 sustainability goals forward.
“When announcing this award, we knew it would attract top design talent,” Fisher told the CFDA. “What we didn’t expect was the extraordinary vision and raw talent these three graduates possess. We are thrilled to have them build upon our sustainability initiative and hopefully inspire other up and coming designers and brands to shape the impact of design sustainability with a fresh perspective.”
The culmination of the project is “Remade in the USA” – the first scalable zero-waste collection offering unique one-of-a-kind pieces created from felting techniques and natural dying redesigned in iconic EILEEN FISHER patterns. The shop will include the “Remade in the USA” collection and select product offerings from GREEN EILEEN and EILEEN FISHER for sale.
The pop-up shop will be open on July 23, 24, 30 & 31 from 12PM-7PM.
