Eileen Fisher Renew for Roosevelt Island
We created EILEEN FISHER Renew so we could extend the lifecycle of the clothes we love. Our philosophy is simple: Buy quality pieces, wear them as long as possible—and when you’re done with them, pass them on to someone else.Website
Sound too good to be true? It does, but the world class fashion designer has done this for years.
“We’re taking our clothes back—over 1.5 million pieces since 2009—to be resold, donated or remade into new designs. It’s all part of our vision for a future without waste,” they say.
And the Carter Burden Network is on hand, making sure it works for Roosevelt Islanders.
“Open to the entire RI community,” says CBN director Lisa Fernandez, and they are ready to go. “We picked up 1,000 pieces of clothing this morning!”
Trust history. These beautiful, renewed designs will go fast. A thousand may be less than you think. And be sure to wear your face mask.
