“It’s been interesting to see how the Nifty for Fifty designers have evolved over 11 years of events,” says event producer and Adhesif Clothing designer Melissa Ferreira. “This year we see a real increase in participating local designers featuring upcycled garments and jewelry created from leather, vintage textiles like slips to sweaters to salvaged materials and factory fabric roll ends. It says a lot about what many of our local designers are inspired by and reflects a growing global trend in the realm of sustainable design.”
