Dear Friend,

In response to the horrific act of terror against the LGBT community in Orlando, please donate here to fundraiser for victims of yesterday’s tragedy.

Sharing with you an article I wrote for Open Source Fashion Magazine — an overview of customization and on-demand fashion production — the 2nd part in its series of 3.

Also listen to the 100th episode of Fashion is Your Business featuring Milk Studios and Milk Made’s Mazdack Rassi and read the recap on it that I wrote for Open Source Fashion.
