NEW YORK, July 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- EILEEN FISHER, Inc. to unveil its first pop-up retail shop in New York City. The shop will host the exclusive launch of "Remade in the USA" – the limited-edition 500-piece collection created by the CFDA Social Innovator Award Winners. The pop-up shop will open the last two consecutive weekends of July.
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. The winners, Teslin Doud, Carmen Gama and Lucy Jones, 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.
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.
