In the confines of 25 Kent Avenue in Brooklyn, New York are a slew of creatives working vigilantly on the ground floor, whether they are sewing their designs or screen-printing. At the helm of the operations of 20,000 square foot space is none other than KidSuper.
Armed with tens of Singer sewing machines and donated clothes, KidSuper and enlisted creatives are armed with everything they need in preparation for their re-imagined fashion show for New York Fashion Week. During the week and putting in unimaginable amounts of hours, the collective of individuals at the factory are re-constructing and up-cycling all donated materials into garments. With everything made in-house at the factory, creations will be displayed in the fashion show on September 11th, which then will continue to remain open from then until September 30th from Thursday to Sunday.
The lengths KidSuper has gone to create this environment, but also giving a medium for creatives to express themselves, is just one of the many traits that make the brand one of one like the pieces they create. Not only have they built a space they wished for when they were younger, but are fulfilling their wish to give back to the Brooklyn community that has supported them so much.
For those creatives looking to join in on the action, be sure to reserve your spot at the KidSuper Assembly Line opening on September 5th. If you’re looking to help out in any way, KidSuper encourages the donation of any clothes towards the cause. And who knows, maybe you’ll spot your something familiar on the KidSuper runway as something much more.
