Isabelle Saxton (a.k.a I$$Y) is a BFA Apparel Design graduate from the Rhode Island School of Design, with a minor in Nature-Culture Sustainability and Science.
Words from the designer:
"I am extremely frustrated by the situation and issues surrounding sustainability so I am using my frustration to make art, to attract people, who are as passionate about it as I am, so that we can come together to design a solution.
My work is driven by the personal bonds I have with my family, my friends, the strangers at bars: the overall community around me. The bond, happiness and effervescent energy are what keep me working. "The force of fashion is symbolic. It is social. It lies in the sphere of interpersonal relations and cultural dynamics." I want a community to form around my work, be informed and informative; a community that can stand out for sustainability™ while pioneering solutions."
