miss velvet cream invites YOU:
Besides a fantastical selection of upcycled and handmade beautiful wearable art, MVC will be bringing an exclusive selection of #amandasagecollection artist Amanda Sage's new fusion yoga line, all made sustainably in Downtown LA, featuring sublimated prints of her amazing paintings to wear as a second skin on your body.
FASHION REVOLUTION 4:24:14 WHO MADE YOUR CLOTHES? SAN FRANCISCO

Do you know who made the clothes you are wearing right now? What country did it travel from? How many people's hands has it touched? What fibers are threaded into its material?
 In our fabulous 21st century lives, we often lose touch with the things we buy and their affect on society and the environment. For example, on April 24th of last year, 1133 people were killed and 2500 injured when the eight-story Rana Plaza garment factory complex in Bangladesh collapsed. To this day, people are still suffering as a direct result of our fashion supply chain.
In response this, we have teamed up with Fashion Revolution Day to remember the victims of garment factory negligence and to promote positive change in the industry. When: April 24th, 2014Where: SOMA StrEAT Food Park MAPTime: 5:00 pm – 9:00 pmEnter to win $200 Shopping Spree Here 




This outdoor sustainable shopping event also features:
Locally manufactured knitwear made from California-grown organic cotton by Myrrhia Fine Knitwear-
Cuffs, bags, and jackets made from landfill salvaged auto leather by Platinum Dirt-
Upcycled vintage jewelry by Angelcake

-Beautiful clothing made from salvaged fabrics by Miss Velvet Cream : Shown is dress made from offcut remnants from the production process of artist Amanda Sage's new clothing line. Cross-pollenation, collaboration, and transformation. See it in person! 

-Handcrafted, sustainable clothing made from natural materials by Nomadista
-Outdoor apparel and snowboarding gear made locally in San Francisco by Pop Outerwear-Socially conscious skincare and body products by Jeffen Guests are invited to sample bites from local food vendors and relax to the wines and brews of the beer garden. 

WANT TO SHOW YOUR SUPPORT FOR THE FASHION REVOLUTION? WEAR SOMETHING INSIDEOUT
To bring attention to true cost of the things we buy --and the invisible workforce behind the clothes we wear-- attendees are encouraged to wear one piece of clothing inside out, to photograph it, and then share to their photos with the hashtag #insideout for a chance to win fair trade fashion from Fashion Revolution Day brand partners. 


I look forward to celebrating Fashion Revolution Day as our Grand Finale of the night market series at SoMa StrEat Food Park.
