New Vestures' aim is to grow and educate a community of fashion designers and entrepreneurs who believe that creative, sustainable design and ethical manufacturing practices will improve lives and better the world. We believe in local manufacturing can be transformed into a sustainable and affordable option for all.
New Vestures' partnership with the International Institute of New England ( IINE ) is one of the many ways we plan on creating a transparent supply chain. The International Institute reaches out to new Americans who are looking to provide for their families and gain employable skills. These students come from countries like Bhutan, Burma, Cambodia, and the UAE (United Arab Emirates). Some students come with a fixed set of skills, ranging from people who have never touched a sewing machine to expert tailors.
