4/18/11 Heidalas Ithaca Inspiration

Heidi Brown has her own Upcycled label called “Heidalas” and I came to know her while living in Ithaca, NY.  One of the first designers I met that reaffirmed to me that other people actually DO what I want to do!  Yet, we do things according to what feels right for us.  I remember telling her that I wanted people to know where my clothing came from- the past lives of the table cloth dress.  She felt the opposite, that she wanted to create beautiful clothing without branding it as upcycled.  I always found that interesting and equally respectful- and necessary in this new era fashion revolution!  Check out her darling designs at http://heidalas.com/home.html.
