Are you a designer or maker whose company focuses on sustainability and ethics? Do you design and make responsible fashion, accessories, home goods, beauty products, or food? We want you to participate in a Holiday Gift Shop! The Brooklyn Fashion + Design Accelerator and the Ethical Writers Coalition are teaming up to bring New York City’s cutest, coolest, most responsible companies together to sell their holiday wares. You will be selling to an audience alongside sustainable fashion heroes like Study NY and Kordal while being surrounded by engaged and caring consumers who want to support ethical and sustainable designers.

Now that it’s September, the holiday season is creeping up on our radar! The Holiday Market will take place on Saturday, December 10th, from 11am – 4pm.

We are looking for socially or environmentally conscious companies that sell anything from clothing and accessories to beauty, food, and home goods. The BF+DA will bring in a great crowd of fashion and social design industry professionals, while the EWC will attract an audience of readers who are new to the idea of sustainable design and are looking to support it in the easiest way they can; shopping! This is a great opportunity to meet fellow responsible designers and to capture new customers who care equally about the beauty of your product as they do about the story behind it.
