Daniel Silverstein, a Brooklyn based designer has taken sustainable concepts to new levels. The designer has his own label known as the ‘Zero Waste Daniel’. He is popular for designing clothes from bits, reusing and recycling things he can gather.

Some of the materials reused or recycled include endless bins of fabric scraps picked up from storage bins that t preserve each and every bit of unused textiles. The oriented team m of Zero Waste Daniel creatively utilizes these pieces to upcycle fashion for the future. Instead of throwing away bolts of leftover fabric stock, Daniel has an eye to reuse, and sometimes sell at discounted prices.

The designer treats surplus fabric as treasure as he believes, the volume of material that goes into the apparel industry was not a matter of joke. He is a creator of eco-friendly non-gender apparel that has been created using pre-consumer waste procured from the garment industry to create bold designs. He has consciously put in efforts to create a positive change in the textile space by making it cleaner and less polluted. 

The step by step process begins with the collection of textile waste or fabric scraps. The collected pieces are then put together to make new designs out of them. The leftover is utilized towards the end to enhance the overall piece. 

He stated that there is an overabundance of textile scraps out there and even though they are hard to find and labor intensive to collect, once they are collected they sort them and join them into new textiles. The designer calls this process ‘ReRoll’.
