Merica Kahn is the designer of NIA Clothing (link), a Brooklyn-based knitwear label that is using technology to push a sustainability agenda. She’s been using the resources of the Brooklyn Fashion + Design Accelerator to learn about full-garment knitwear printing and currently has her first three products available for sale. An early stage conversation to be sure, but a recent one, so perhaps a valuable look into how things are changing (or not changing) for emerging designers in terms of access to resources in the New York City area.
