Seams For Dreams had its collaboration with Bombay Closet Cleanse on the 1st and 2nd of February at Native Spaces in Versova. In line with the goals of 2020, Seams For Dreams is always happy to collaborate with like-minded organizations and small, community efforts like Bombay Closet Cleanse only help further the awareness around reuse, recycle, and repurpose!
Bombay Closet Cleanse is the most happening thrift space that offers vintage clothes and jewelry, up-cycled pieces, classic second-hand books, and even handwoven pieces. This is a community effort that was started by Sana Khan and so far, three events have been put together through the initiative. By spreading the word on reusing and recycling through local efforts, Bombay Closet Cleanse hopes to make an impact on the environment and encourage consumers to shop second-hand!
Seams For Dreams had their second collaboration with Bombay Closet Cleanse and is now the official NGO partner for BCC’s events this year. The first pop-up event that BCC hosted was a 2-day pop-up that was held at Beg Borrow Steal in Bandra, where many fashionistas from all over Mumbai came to shop responsibly and show their support for the common cause of reusing, recycling and upcycling! Seams For Dreams’ carefully curated collection included funky, floral pieces, dresses, and some sexy casual tops, which was perfect for the fashion lovers that showed up to shop. All proceeds earned at the SFD stall, of course, are 100% non-profit and help the organization’s mission to clothe people from under-resourced communities.
Other brands that were present at the event this time were Beg Borrow Steal, which had their collection of vintage pieces and rentals, and hand-painted, upcycled denim jackets by a second-year college student: Sayma Mirza, and upcycled jewelry and organic facial toners from a local artist Liactualle.
It is fantastic to see so many individuals furthering the cause of reusing, recycling, and repurposing. To support our mission and to join the movement, get in touch with the SFD team to make a clothing donation or organize your very own pop-up!
