This is awesome!
Marisol Trowbridge, a fashion designer based in Maine, has come up with a way to allow people to custom-make their own clothing without all the actual work! Ha!
Marisol has rounded up talented fabric makers and weavers from around the USA to contribute to the brand, called Puzzle Apparel, which champions "sustainable, responsible fashion."
The process begins when a customer picks a garment designed by Marisol herself, then chooses how to embellish it with the different patterned fabrics made available by Marisol's partners.
Once the piece has been customized, it is sewn and shipped to the customer!
All the embellishments are handmade by American artists, and truly one-of-a-kind!
The idea came to the designer after she spent time in Guatemala and befriended a 13-year-old girl who worked part-time at a garment factor making the very clothes that Marisol and others in America were wearing.
So, basically, Puzzle Apparel is a great way to look good and do good!
