To divert unnecessary textile waste by creating genderless apparel from fabric scraps collected from tailor shops across New England. As well as giving new attitude to previously loved, upcycled garments.
We believe apparel is an form of art. All our garments are one-of-a-kind and look as good on a body as they do hanging on a wall.
We release a few new garments every other week. By diverting from the traditional fashion calendar, we maintain little inventory. This fosters a sustainable fashion system.
All our garments are made from fabric that would have otherwise been sent to a landfill as waste. We also use zero waste practices to cut patterns and reuse threads, zippers and buttons from garments past their wearable life.
We believe clothes have no gender: if it fits your body, it's for your body.
The designer: Stevie Leigh Andrascik
Named after Stevie Nicks, the lead singer of Fleetwood Mac and fashion icon, Stevie Leigh Andrascik has always had an interest in fashion and music. It is no coincidence that she has created a brand merging her two favorite things.
Graduating from Parsons: The New School for Design with a BFA in sustainable fashion design in 2014, Stevie found herself working in a tailor shop in Massachusetts shortly afterwards. As she learned to become a master tailor, dissecting and rebuilding suits, dresses and denim from brands such as Canali, Hugo Boss, Ted Baker, Theory and AG, Stevie became distraught at how much waste her little shop just outside of Boston created everyday just to have a factory made garment fit a real life customer body.
Stevie became particularly interested in the denim waste the shop created, for she found her shop created approximately 12lbs of denim scraps every month. Stevie began to collect these scraps, bringing them to her studio in Worcester, Ma and #REMIXbyStevieLeigh was born!
Chronicling her journey on her Instagram page (@ItsMeStevieLeigh), Stevie shares her process in her studio reassembling the upcycled denim scraps and giving them new life with a punk rock attitude. Dressing musicians and music lovers, Stevie has showcased her work throughout New England. Including at Vans Warped Tour, Boston Hassle Flea, Salem Halloween Market, Trenton Punk Rock Flea Market, Artists & Fleas and many more.
Stevie has had her work exhibited at many museums and art galleries including: Fitchburg Art Museum, Worcester Historical Museum, ArtsWorcester and LexArt. She has taught sewing and fashion upcycling classes at the Worcester Art Museum in Worcester, MA and LINX in Wellesley, MA. When not sewing, you can find Stevie at an alternative rock show or adventuring with her 5lb Papillion dog, Sprinkles.
Stevie Leigh Andrascik is on a mission to change the fashion industry's status as the second most pollution creating industry in the world to the last. Her upcycled fashion collection #REMIXbyStevieLeigh is just the beginning. Stevie offers custom apparel design and alterations in her Worcester, MA studio.
