i'm currently on a mission to create more and consume less, and to help anyone interested in doing the same. i geek out over design thinking, circular systems and the collaborative economy.

what am i up to now?

opening a collaborative / experimental design space in chinatown, nyc. building and refining an near-perfect sustainable wardrobe. exploring ways to extend product lifecycles and eventually close the loop through recollection and recycling. starting a community challenge around not buying new things (feel free to join and participate via http://nonewstuff.club/ and #NoNewStuff). sometimes writing stuff at medium.com/raw-material. exploring the future of the workplace and decentralized offices. considering starting a vlog in 2017.

my first major unchaperoned project is material, a forthcoming sustainable clothing brand setting out to minimize waste in the garment industry. more below!

--

material: a new way to think about what you wear. an uncomplicated clothing line of timeless essentials to wear, repair, share and ultimately return for recycling.

material's commitments include:

- elegant products, built to last. 30 years, 30 wears.

- ethical fabrics, transparent supply chain, fair pricing.

- sustainable, closed-loop lifecycle.

first women's blazer pre-order coming soon -- sign up @ http://wear-material.com 💥

aside from yoga, cooking and hanging out with family and friends, i've never liked doing the same thing twice. please feel free to contact me with any questions if you're itching to create or do something and aren't sure how to start! i love scheming up new projects with curious people. email: smile-at-allievice-dot-com.
