Around the summer of 2012, I was organizing the wardrobe trailer on the 2nd season of GIRLS and was listening to NPR.
There was an interview with Elizabeth Cline, author of Overdressed: The Shockingly High Cost of Cheap Fashion.
And as I sifted through and organized, I knew after hearing this interview that fabric re-use and textile repurposing was going to play a big role in the life of ricRACK.
I heard things like...
There were a lot of factions that came together, in a way, to create the perfect storm, aka my passion to create ricRACK.
I didn’t know it then, how it was all going to come together to create what we know now as ricRACK…..a re-sale shop, children’s sewing and repurposing lessons, an entrepreneur program, free Halloween costume give-aways for kids, adult professional classes, and the grandmother of all wardrobe sales, Hollywood Thrift.
There’s no one impetus, but many things that can be accredited to ricRACK’s identity.
