My outfit for this year’s Diner en Blanc NYC was all scrap. The materials used to make this dress and wrap were remnants or items given to me by people who could no longer find a use for them. I took the unwanted and turned them into the wanted. You may have seen these pieces before since they’ve both been on the runway, just with different outfits. I’ve had them for years and take extra special care so I can continue to enjoy them for years to come. I’ve nicknamed the wrap Wonder Woman: once you put it on, you transform into something wonderful.

Once 2 dresses and a pair of slacks now SO much more. I take the unwanted and turn them into the wanted. Distinctive, one-of-a-kind pieces were created out of garments someone no longer needed: a skirt and top with matching scarf. Handmade by me so 100% sweatshop free. I keep leftover scraps out of the landfill by shredding them into pillow stuffing. When it comes to taking a sustainable approach, I constantly ask myself “what can I do better?” .Yes, I’m a tree-hugger. Skirt and top available at: www.filosano.com

Once an 80’s iconic sweater now SO much more. I take the unwanted and turn them into the wanted. Distinctive, one-of-a-kind pieces were created out of a sweater someone no longer needed: an infinity scarf, shoulder wrap and wrist cuffs. Handmade by me so 100% sweatshop free.
