Have you heard about FABSCRAP and its new customization department?

FABSCRAP is a Brooklyn, NY based non-profit organization dedicated to textile reuse and recycling; sourcing designer label fabric from NYC fashion design studios.

Every Saturday, FABSCRAP opens its customization department to the general public where featured fashion designers use on-site sewing machines to create one-of-a-kind pieces.

The process is simple, designer label fabric and patches are paired with clothing sourced from your very own closet or on-site racks curated by Alfonso Powell and Men Of Thrift.

Best of all, FABSCRAP’s customization department services are affordable with flexible pricing.

This past Saturday, FABSCRAP featured fashion designer Royal, a Harlem, NY native with a ready-to-wear fashion brand dubbed Royal Vision. Thankfully, he will be featured again this upcoming Saturday (11/10), so be sure to stop by if you need to upgrade your closet with some heat.

Be sure, to follow us on Twitter and Instagram.

Since you’re here…

…we have a small favor to ask. Men Of Thrift's independent, fashion journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as $1, you can support Men Of Thrift – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
