RewearAble was striking a pose within the world-famous window display at Saks’ flagship Fifth Avenue location this summer. Beginning in the last week of July, out-of-stock merchandise and donated clothing from Saks 5th Avenue employees was collected and made visible to the public in five windows adorned with the RewearAble logo. The mountain of clothing, which was collaboration from Saks 5th Avenue and the French fashion designer Vetements, served as a call to action to recycle and not waste while also making awareness to ACLD’s program that provides sustainable employment to the developmentally disabled.
On the last day of the showcase RewearAble employees and a handful of ACLD staff took a trip to New York City to see the display where a photographer and videographer were on hand to capture the day. RewearAble staff were interviewed on camera, sharing the pride of having meaningful employment. The momentous video will be presented at ACLD’s Enviable Life Ball.
“A highlight of my career here at ACLD,” said Executive Director, Bob Goldsmith on what the day meant to him. “Seeing the smiles on our employee’s faces told me that we are indeed creating enviable lives.”
