MSF: So what made you open up this slice of heaven?
MS:I lived out west for six years…north of vancouver… and alot of the designers i work with are from BC to be honest its hard to find montreal designers that work with eco friendly fabrics…
MSF: i know, its weird isnt it?
MS: but in bc its hard to find someone who doesnt..but i also have lines from Nova scotia, montreal…in montreal were running into whats called the upcycling trend..
MS:yeah the upcycling trend where they recycle fabrics like this piece…
MSF:like deborah adam’s handbags
MSF: good because i totally dig all of these bags, especially this gray one (this is where the real good reporting comes in) What are your goals?
MS:i want to change the world..no.. haha.. im not an activist per se i cant convince people but i can give them the opportunities to change thats the way i see it, show them something new and hope they pick up on it im not good on pushing things on people and these last few months have been a challenge…
MSF:how many times do you go to shops where they sell things at these prices but with some kid making them in a factory for 30 cents
(Random Shout from the back):Umm doing anything with the food waste or should we throw it all away?
MS: The cake i will eat it ALL.. before i go to bed
MSF: haha not even like this week but before i go to bed hahah
MS:Ah ive lost ten lbs this last two weeks..
MSF:from all the stress of course
MS:..so i can afford im totally fine i can eat some cake.
MS:so i dont want to send the wrong message either yes i work with canadian designers, designer clothes are designer clothes with the price tag attached for me its price points..simple dress $50.
MSF:well thats not crazy
MS:…so why not buy eco friendly?
MSF:do you plan on getting more montreal based..?
MS: yeah as i go, because my sources are more back west its been this person and that person but i have this its montreal water based prints..
MS:I don’t know hwo good your french is but..
MS:To be a star or to be unnoticed..thats her message one of a kind pieces recycles fabrics and gets inspired by them
MS:yeah so others plb i dont know if you know him but i really love this one music is green and this montreal one..
MSF:o wow i didnt even see this one today
MS:yeah you know AA he uses their organic line and water based inks we dont need to use solvents for inks theres other options…bambu is the face brand if i could get it i wouldnt have opened the store theyre so environmentally friendly and socially involved so thats a total plus for me
MSF:so they let you use the lamps
MS:yeah it use to be a glass workshop
MSF:so they let you sue the lamps thats fucking awesome?
MS:well they’re consignment based im really fair with all the artists compared to most thats how was raised in the industry
MSF:i love how its everything from the little black dress to these amazing pillows..what are these made out of?
MS:i usually use a $200 pillow because of my neck problems and this is a miracle organically grown
Lucas Solowey: i enjoyed the snacks and wine and people seemed to enjoy themselves
