RIghtfully Sewn is a fantastic organization that will provide seamstress training for at-risk women so they can thrive in a specialized workforce that will reestablish Kansas City as an epicenter of garment manufacturing, while at the same time, propel Kansas City fashion designers to market so they can supply the burgeoning demand for affordable, high-quality, American-produced garments.
The key strategies of their organziation are to:
A. Empower at-risk women by teaching them a trade and assisting them with job placement,
thereby elevating them out of a systemic situation.
B. Cultivate fashion designers by providing them access to a designated space, state-of-the-art fashion technology,
and staffing resources through competitive designer residencies
