What?s an environmental seamstress? Ask Kate Goldwater, who?s done all the sewing work at her AuH2O Boutique for the last year and a half. With her trusty sewing machines, Goldwater is able to transform ?old T-shirts, slips, ties, vintage dresses, costumes, curtains, and other unwanted fabric? into new skirts, dresses, and tops, as well as men?s wear, with good prices for these hard-hitting economic times: shirts for $15 to $28, and dresses from $35 to $80. Goldwater also believes in putting her stitches where her beliefs are, adding slogans (?Reproductive Freedom Fighter?) and political figures (a certain Democratic presidential candidate) to her work. In addition, she?s hosted and participated in fashion shows of her oeuvre at venues like Lincoln Center and NYU. And what, you may wonder, is the strangest design she?s put together? That honor probably goes to her MetroCard dress, which had to be discontinued when the MTA said it wasn?t amused.
