Meet Anglela Luna and Loulwa Al Saad, founders of ADIFF—a brand redefining functional fashion. ADIFF grew out of Founder Angela Luna’s award-winning senior thesis at Parsons School of Design in which she explored how fashion could address the refugee crisis. Luna’s thesis featured a series of garments designed to help those fleeing to Europe from Syria, including jackets that double as tents, sleeping bags, or backpacks, as well as jackets equipped for carrying children, flotation, and [in]visibility.
Last week we had the pleasure of sitting down with Reese Shebel and Johann Aguirre of Brooklyn-based apparel brand Minus US. We met the duo at SOHO House in Manhattan to talk about their work, thrifting in the city, and building an artistic career with social impact.
Meet the mother-daughter team behind women’s fashion brand PIXIE Won’t Play—Ingrida Araja and Dārta Kalēja. Founded in Latvia, their designs have now reached a world-wide audience, including here at The Canvas Williamsburg and The Canvas Antwerp.
