Reuse Is Sexy: Shop Upcycled Fashions at This New Oculus Boutique
Upcycling is often much better for the environment than recycling, because, for one, it actually works. Celebrate the spirit of creative reuse with the women- and minority-owned fashion brand Art To Ware, which has launched a pop-up shop at the Oculus.
Art To Ware — A2W for short — will feature a curated selection of one-of-a-kind garments and accessories, all made from upcycled materials. The boutique will feature designs from a new generation of up-and-coming, socially conscious style purveyors, selected by Art To Ware founder Lesley Ware, including Parron Allen, Gianni Lee, Hansel Clothing, JRat, Alexa Stark, Ooh Baby and Project Runway alum Rodney Epperson.
A2W will also host a series of in-store demonstrations based on Ware’s fashion-as-self-care ethos, where visitors can learn about cultivating creativity through personal style and how anyone can rework gently worn clothing into new creations. The August opening will operate from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.
