Support NYC Ethical Fashion & Design Pop-Ups This Holiday Season


The Ethical Writers Holiday Gift Shop at the BF+DA

This holiday season support NYC ethical fashion and design talent at Pop-Ups being hosted all over Manhattan and Brooklyn. There are so many opportunities to give back to the community whether you back women’s rights, ethical fashion, Standing Rock or more. So why not consider supporting issues while shopping for loved ones!

We’ve compiled a list for you to keep it all organized and hope to see you at one of the pop-ups listed!

You can catch many of us this Saturday at the Brooklyn Fashion+ Design Accelerator as we host our own pop-up with many of our in-house designers, as well as some of our favorite community members.

See our list below…
