Snippet from Reuben’s designsponge.com Interview
D*S: I love that you’re still sewing all your dresses by hand. Do you enjoy that process and does it make you feel more attached to your work?
RR: I truly enjoy making the clothes that I design. Sewing the garments myself helps me to be super attentive to details. It has made my eye for quality control even stronger. Another great benefit is when I get positive feedback from customers on how well constructed the garment is and to know that my hands actually made it. I also feel that the customer feels that it was made special for them and they have a real connection with the designer.
there’s good shit in the world, people.
LOVE, it’s right under our nose.

This weekend was not a gift from the CEO, it was earned by the collective hard work of unionized American workers.
Enjoy your weekend.
