I’m a lucky, lucky lady that Jennifer Fukushima lives and works in my city. I love her clothing and her ethics. Jennifer makes clothing from recycled and eco-friendly fabrics. If you have ever visited stores like Fresh Collective and Chartreuse Style then you might have seen her work in their stores.
For those addicted to fast fashion please don’t get sticker shock. Jennifer’s clothing is meticulously sewn here in Toronto. Plus keep in mind the work that goes into each garment. Using recycled fabrics and piecing them together into one whole clothing item takes time and precision. While the clothing can be pricey, I think the quality is well worth it. Just looking at the stitching it looks like a piece of art. The stitches and seams are so neat, clean and they don’t unravel. I have been frustrated in the past when buying eco-friendly clothing that has been shoddily sewn together. No need to worry about that with this piece. The Monilifera jacket is perfect for most seasons except for the warmer months. In the winter time it keeps me warm and is easy to layer with. In the spring and fall it works well as a light jacket. I wore it to the Green Living Show in April and I often wear it at work on casual Fridays. It’s nice enough to wear to the office and casual enough so that you don’t look overdressed if you’re at a casual event. Pick one up when you can! Once the item sells out there won’t be any more. These jackets are limited run.
