Zero Waste Daniel: Transforming Scraps Into Fashion

Shop Ladies and Gents Zero Waste Daniel Fernanda Paronetto Upcoming Collection

Have you heard of Zero Waste Daniel? If not, you should really see what these guys are doing in Brooklyn! They are a “the first line of zero waste clothing, made from reroll, the fabric of the future!”

The first time I met Daniel, I thought: “What a kind, sweet and intelligent guy!” Well, it didn’t take much to validate my first impression.

After talking to him for a few minutes, I learned and was already completely in love with what he was working on.

Daniel started a sustainable fashion brand called Zero Waste Daniel (ZWD) and the idea behind it is literally phenomenal. ZWD is the “first line of zero waste clothing, made from reroll, the fabric of the future. It is composed of 100% scrap material.”

As a young boy, Daniel knew that he wanted to start making clothes and as he says, experimenting with fabric. So, his mom took him every now and then to a fabric store which he could get scraps of fabric and just start creating different pieces by sewing everything together.

Of course, he decided to study fashion. Daniel went to the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York and got a Bachelor Degree in Fine Arts (BFA) Fashion/Apparel Design. This also gave him the opportunity of spending 1 year in Milan, also studying Fashion/Apparel Design.

While working in the fashion industry, Daniel noticed that every company – big or small, high-end to mass market – had the same problem.

They all had tons and tons of waste material that was thrown out after fabrication.

That’s when the idea came to life! Why throw all this material out and not reuse it in a smart way, reducing waste and creating beautiful, unique clothes?

It’s amazing how much material is thrown away and how much we can actually do with it. And, how we can take this material that is free or has very little cost and do things like create job for New Yorkers, instead of off-shoring and making more waste overseas.

Daniel saw the opportunity of transforming this into a sustainable business!

While talking to him, I asked what he’d say to kids that are almost of our college and dream about starting their own fashion business. His first recommendation was:

One thing that always works and that is one of the reasons why my Operations Manager, Julia, found me and stayed with me for all these years, as we got this business going, was that: business that are actually solving a problem or answering a question are statistically most likely to succeed.

And we agree 10000%! When you’re addressing bigger issues that resonate with people worldwide, you’ll most certainly be able to grow your business, because people will back up your idea.

His collection is not only beautiful, but gives you the chance of having one of a kind pieces that only YOU will own.

In a world where the fast-fashion is growing so rapidly and that everyone is looking the same on the streets, Dan is going back to basics and bringing back the concept of “being YOUnique”.

One of the coolest things in the store, is that his atelier is there too! You can see his team working on the upcoming pieces on-sight. It’s certainly an experience!

THIS STORE UNFORTUNATELY PERMANENTLY CLOSED AND ONLY SELLS ONLINE!

The other day, our Founder, , was talking to a very dear neighbor and friend of hers that is Vegan about how hard it is to find sustainable, cruelty-free winter coats in New York. Most of the brands use some type of animal product in their products: fur, feathers, leather, etc.

So, her neighbor mentioned about a brand that is getting more and more attention over the past few years.

Vaute Couture, founded in 2008 by the gorgeous Leanne Maily, stands for “Haute” + “V” for Vegan.

They explain that they are:

The ethical fashion house for animal lovers: 100{c8399be91965ff06a5fa23750b49beaf0bc09e4b1c94b50d52f75c5d1635bbfd} vegan + eco + made in New York City”!

For a start, Leanne stopped eating animals at the age of 10 and, after that, her passion for sharing the Vegan lifestyle grew exponentially as the years went by! She also felt it was quite impossible to find beautiful, hot, “animal-free” winter coats in Chicago, where she lived before moving to NYC.

Subsequently, for a full 8 months, she researched all the fabrics in the market and all her possibilities. Some time after starting the brand, she moved to New York City, where she opened a first store in Williamsburg.

Then, on February of 2013, during the NYFW, she was named the “rebel of fashion week”. Plus, she recieved the title of the “next Stella McCartney”.

Obviously, this catapulted her brand helping her break out to the main stream audience.

In addition, the materials used come from recycled organic plastic bottles, organic fabrics and other cruelty-free materials. For example, the sweaters contain recycled cotton from the fashion industry.

The store, located on the cool Lower East Side of Manhattan, offers a huge variety of items. For the Ladies: basics, tops, sweaters, bottoms, dresses, shoes, gowns, body suits, swimwear, to the perfect winter coats – snow and wind proof, hats and jewelry. Today, they focus primarily on winter coats and sweaters.

Eventually, they more recently started the Gentlemen’s collection, so it has a smaller variety. It’s always been only winter coats and sweaters!

Additionally, the brand recently collaborated and threw a great party inside the store for Project Chimps. This project is a new sanctuary for 200+ chimps retiring from biomedical research.

They partnered up with other brands like: Vegan Treats, Kat Von D Beauty, Blossom Du Jour, Mother of Pearl, Querciabella, Kombrewcha, Urban Vegan Kitchen and Fresh & Co.

The Dodo debuted a video of the first 9 chimps first few weeks of freedom, and Vaute Couture designed a benefit tee that you can buy, to support them!

Pretty cool initiative, right?

Wanna know one of the coolest perks at the store?

Lastly, the 12 first customers that walk in every day are lucky to get a huge – and to-die-for – doughtnut from Dunwell Doughtnuts! We are completely addicted to them, by the way! One of the best doughnuts in New York City!

So, come explore this new hype in NYC!

A Downtown NYC Shopping Guide for Men by Joey Zauzig

Shop Ladies and Gents Menswear Joey Zauzig NYC

If you’re looking for few great places to shop for men’s clothing and accessories, take a look at this selection by our amazing Contributor, Joey Zauzig! It’s a short downtown NYC shopping guide for men.

Downtown shopping is something that some would describe as challenging. Uptown shopping has a stigma of having the best stores for your go-to closet must-haves.

Moreover, some of the best spots to shop at downtown do exist. They just might be a bit trickier to find and filter out with all the other boutiques on every street in the downtown boroughs.

For instance, some of my favorite stores from Midtown Manhattan to Brooklyn include, Dover Street Market, Fish for the Hip and Bird.

Bird is always a great shop not just because of the must have mens pieces it has to offer, but the comfy, downtown environment. Not many know about this retail gem, but you might feel like you’ve struck gold when you see the refined men’s section.

So, trust me, sure to find your winter to fall transition piece here.

STORY has a fantastic concept, right? We love the math: reinventing themes, curating object and anticipating trends!

To start, the space was launched in the end of 2011 by Rachel Shechtman. She’s been was nominated as “one of Fast Company’s 100 Most Creative People in Business and Fortune Magazine’s 40 under 40”.

So how did it all start?

“Founded by Rachel Shechtman, a former brand consultant for Kraft, TOMS shoes and Lincoln, the idea was to create a retail concept that would serve as a matchmaker between brands and consumers, integrating strategies of marketing, merchandising, and business development.”

So, lets go back and understand what their concept actually means.

Well, every four to eight weeks, the 2000 sq ft store completely reinvents itself presenting new themes, objects and trends!

They do a complete makeover from merchandise and store design to floor plan and fixtures.

A few themes they’ve explored are:

  • Design: During NYC Design week)
  • Style.Tech: Connects the dots between style and technology)
  • His: An experiential dialogue about men’s grooming and style)
  • Good: Tapping into our collective power to make change)
  • and other theses like Love, New York, Wellness, Art and more!

As Beth Comstock, CMO and GE at STORY says:

“There is a huge value for brands in having a place where you can experiment, and to have a lab that actually creates a profit and a recurring revenue stream, and gives people a good experience.”

We couldn’t agree more! We love the entire concept, the product curation and specially the experience provided to every single customer that walks into the store!

So, go see what we mean by: reinventing themes, curating object and anticipating trends!

In addition, you might want to check out more about Inventory Magazine too. They are an online magazine, but their curation is also very unique and focused on design and craftsmanship.

And still, we also enjoy their extremely creative and playful campaigns. Hands are obviously the protagonists and are arranged in interesting ways to best expose the pieces.

Take a look at a behind the scenes video of their 2014 Campaign shoot:

More about the brand:

“Outrageous and provocative, Alexandre Corrot builds his collections, like his campaigns, into authentic works of art. Beyond the constraints of traditional jewelry, the Djula spirit remains that of the young Parisian house spearheading the «Glam Rock» trend in its jewelry almost twenty years ago.” 

More importantly, their sourcing follows rigorous and ethical policies, the quality is impeccable and Carrot’s creations are inspired by different women’s personalities.

Jay Kos is one of the stores we really enjoy recommending to the bold, unique men with strong and fearless personality.

Jay’s story begins back in Westfield, New Jersey. It doesn’t surprise us when we learned that Jay had a hard time adjusting to the uniformity and lack of individualism of that community. Inside, he wanted to express his talent and creativity, but it was only years later that he got closer to the fashion universe.

At 16 he started his own flea market business and in the early 1990’s he began selling high-end luxury brands. In no time, he was the “talk of the town”!

He even tried Dental School, but found out his real calling, was Fashion!

Today,  Jay is not only a designer, but also a Chef. He gets much of his design inspiration from the food’s tastes, colors and textures! Pretty special, huh!?

His store is located in SoHo and it’s décor sends you back to the 1940’s, with a twist.

He designed a special kitchen that, if you’re lucky enough, you’ll be served a snack by Jay himself! The selection for the bold and adventurous men range from polka-dot ties, felt hats, rich colored vests and blazers, to other pretty exotic items.

In addition, for the more conservative men, they are also able to find amazing items. From perfectly tailored linen and wool suits, corduroy pans and the best: exclusively tailored suits that range from $4,500,up to $20,000. Certainly a special piece to have in your closet.

It can get pretty expensive, but Jay’s singular touch and eye for details do make the price comprehensible.

Shopping at Jay Kos NYC is, above all, a rare experience! So, enjoy!

If you’d like to have a Personal Stylist helping you out, and even pre selecting the items that match your style and taste, contact our experts.

“A hat allows you to make a statement without saying a word” – Ben Goorin

Goorin Bros hat shop has a fantastic story!

It all started waaaay back in 1895, with Cassel Goorin. He created custom-made hats off his horse cart in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Furthermore, several years later, in 1921, Cassel taught his two sons, Alfred and Ted, the art and business of his trade. When Alfred and Ted took over Cassel’s business, it became the Goorin Brothers.

Alfred and Ted knew about their father’s passion for outdoor activities and decided, in 1948, to create the Grenadier Catalog. In other words, it was a sporting line designed to accommodate the hunter, fisherman and camper alike.

In 1949, Alfred moved to San Francisco, expanding their business and their awareness. They also added hat-related accessories to their successful line of headwear. Unique items like gloves and mittens, socks, and other sportswear were created.

The successful story passed on through generations of the Goorin family. In 1991, Ben Goorin of the 4th generation, observed the cultural movement of the 90’s. He knew that the Goorin archives contained the hats that would make a great comeback.

Eventually, in 2012 Goorin Bros focused on bringing a personal level of genuine interaction back – hat shops and customers.

They wanted to make hat wearing relevant again.

Now, imagine a world with beautifully crafted hats once again reigning the street scene. How cool would that be!? Well, on our end, we’re huge supporters!

Plus, sometimes you can be lucky enough to see a rare solo set in their Williamsburg store!

Note! They to have hats for women too, so girls, go there have fun! If you have kinds, they have the trendiest options too.

In addition, if you just love head adornments and you’re, lets stay, the “bold” type-a-gal, you might want to check out Dora Marra. She has one of the best stores in New York.
