I've been wondering why fashion magazines don't have a Made in USA fashion segment. My guilty pleasure is reading Cosmo and Glamour, but seeing the same articles over and over about great bargains, color trends, vibrant cheetah prints, or work outfits, makes me wonder why they don't do a page spread on Made in USA trends. It would get the word out to young fashion-minded gals (who spend lots of money!) that there are tons of American made brands and cute clothes.
This morning while looking over Cosmo at breakfast, I saw that Ella Moss is coming out with a lingerie brand. I was all excited, since Ella Moss is part of the brand Splendid with is 75% Made in USA. However, I looked up the lingerie, and saw that it's imported. Sigh.
Not to be discouraged, however, I then Googled "Made in USA underwear", and found a kickstarter with $291,493 of pledged money for "Flint and Tinder", a men's Made in USA underwear company. Any way you cut it, $291,493 is a lot of support for a Made in USA project, and they already have 300 people employed!
Check it out!
Note to Self: A Made in USA gift for Brian, perhaps...
Hello! I'm a 30 year old gal with a liking for doing year long projects. I've done a year without any form of chocolate, a year without coffee shops, and 5 years without gum (and I LOVE chocolate, coffee shops, and gum)! A year wearing only American Made should be the hardest yet, though*.
