Meaningful collaborations are not limited to the distance between the parties involved.

From New York to Los Angeles, we have collaborated with C.Mota Studio and PBLK SRVC on the First-Responder Series—repurposed, first-responder uniforms that represent “making fashion a force for good.” This is the motto of REMAKE, the nonprofit where proceeds from the series will be donated to.

The series is comprised of three uniform pieces, each incorporating the message to unfollow mass production and overconsumption, an idea that C. Mota Studio founders, Carla Mota and Jay Troupe firmly stand behind.

Carla Mota founded C.Mota Studio in 2017, which is a cumulation of brands aligned and focused on using FASHION for the good of people and our planet.

She has an extensive creative and technical design background from having experience with big name brands like Champion. This however, has also given her an inside look into the adverse effect of fast fashion. After seeing first-hand the harmful nature of fast fashion, she has since been driven to raise awareness and drive sustainable design, and ethical development in the industry.

Her passion for using existing resources and recycled pieces to reduce textile and garment waste has well equipped her with advocating for progressive social and environmental solutions.
