DISHEARTENED by an apparel industry too often defined by excess and waste, Atelier & Repairs has committed itself from day one to creatively reimagining discarded and forgotten clothing. Bringing together sustainability and creativity. So in the spirit of breathing new life into what already exists, we paid a visit to the Hudson River Park, which has now for 20 years been a symbol of urban renewal and sustainability in NYC. The park successfully transformed four neglected miles of Manhattan's West side into a recreational green space that also protects the Hudson River environment. Where there used to be run down parking lots and trash, now there are endless trees, fields, courts and boats of all sizes docked on the piers. If there's anywhere where Atelier's guiding principle, "100% Transformation" feels right, it's got to be here.
