A behind the scenes look at life as a small business owner in the fashion and art industries with Janelle Abbott, founder of Wardrobe Therapy and Femail Forever.
Janelle and I first met at Parsons the New School for Design in the sustainable section of the Fashion department. Watching our careers develop alongside our friendship throughout the years has been incredible. I have so much respect for her commitment to zero waste design and one-of-a-kind pieces celebrating individuality.
Below is our full length discussion about how she's doing as an artist and designer in Seattle amidst everything going on due to COVID-19. She also gives a delightful insight into her newest collection Ugly House On the Prairie.

The transparent truth for delaying this video is because I needed time to make sure our office in NY was prepared to close, in addition to ensuring my own personal safety and those around me.
