@Carson Kressley Dresses Featured in the Lehigh Valley Charter Arts Fashion Show

This year’s Flying Solo: Thinking Outside of the Box Fashion Show sponsored by my high school was as amazing success! We had participation from many professional and emerging designers from Philadelphia to New York City including Pamela Ptak, Daniel Silverstein, Bianca-Rachelle, BlckBts and Agashi to name a few. But one of my favorites this year were the dresses provided to us from Emmy winning television star, #Carson Kressley! The easy to wear maxi dresses from his Love, Carson? Spring collection are perfection. Thanks Carson for your support. You rock!

An Inside Look: The Real Sweatshops of Cambodia

This is important. Very important. We need to all take responsibility for not only our designs but how and where they are manufactured! #ethical manufacturing #mojo-fashions

Individual Empowerment

Individual empowerment requires taking action to make the world a healthier place for others, not just ourselves!

Fashion bloggers in the Netherlands were given the chance to see where their clothing originates by working in sweatshops. Check it out:  Examiner.com/article/reality-tv-show-sends-fashion-bloggers-to-work-sweatshop

Do you LOVE fashion, but dislike the unsustainable fashion industry? I do. Expressing ourselves with fashion is a fun and healthy way to enjoy life. But the fashion industry is all about appearances, not expression and that’s unhealthy. This is one of many reasons why I didn’t follow through with a career in fashion. Mass produced fashion is an industry that is unhealthy, unsustainable and basically pointless. As someone who used to love shopping for sales so I could have trendy clothes I no longer want any part of it. I hardly shop at all these days. I prefer to buy second-hand or sustainable made clothing when it’s affordable.

Urban Outfitters in Hot Water….Again

Depression? Really?

I normally try to stay away from controversy and politics, but as an owner of a children’s clothing company, I feel we have a responsibility to protect children and create clothing that promotes a positive self image. I am personally disgusted by #Urban Outfitters t-shirt promoting depression. While they have agreed to take the product off the shelves, the fact that they manufactured the product in the first place shows the company’s insensitivity and focus more on profits than on caring.

Mojo-Fashions In the News! Reading Eagle Feature Story on Justin Orlick

Berks County fashion designer, Justin Orlick, 17, finds inspiration in Third World Travels

I have been fortunate and blessed to travel to many third world countries to provide volunteer support for sustainability projects and education programs. I have travelled to Thailand, Vietnam and Peru. I have also travelled throughout Europe including Italy and France. I am always amazed by the people and inspired by the colors, textures, textiles and art around me. Whenever possible I try to incorporate these elements into my designs.

I am so honored to be featured in this Reading Eagle article.
