When sustainability and fashion collide!

PHILOSOPHY​
What matters most with my designs, is that they are beautifully crafted garments that actually mean something. Fashion has so many meanings, that impact the lives of the individuals wearing them, observing them, and the world we live in. I believe in the art of fashion and that design creations can be as valid as any other art form. True craftsmanship, in design, is a beautiful thing. My goal is to create art, in my pieces, through innovative inspiration, craftsmanship and designs, and to ultimately consider myself an artist. I do, however, think my designs can more than just art. My goal is to utilize my designs as a tool for wearers to express their individuality and/or their point of view. Further, it is my aim to ensure that all my designs do no further harm to the environment. I would like my designs to actually improve the world we live in, thus sustainability is core aspect of my design philosophy. Sustainability in my designs includes: organic/natural fabrics, no chemicals, recycled materials, local sourcing, timeless designs, quality construction and ethical design, operating and marketing practices. Ultimately, it's extremely important to me to create things of beauty, not things of destruction, that can enhance the world we live in and the lives of those inspired by it.

DESIGNER EDEN SLEZIN BIOGRAPHY​
Having gotten into professional design at a later stage in my life, I think I have a unique perspective as a designer. I have had numerous careers up to this point including scientist, USMC Intelligence Officer, backpacking guide, multiple business owner and retail General Manager. All those have greatly enhanced my experience base and my goal is to always bring those experiences into my designs. I like to identify myself as a designer, an entrepreneur, a leader and an adventurer.

I see fashion as such an amazing opportunity for personal, creative growth, and a perfect platform, due to its scale and influence, to highlight issues with global implications. Growing up working class, I never felt a career in the arts would be possible. It has only been through all the experiences that I have had growing up and in my careers, that have led me to this present, fortunate position to be pursuing a dream. Perhaps as a conscious or unconscious ode to my origins lies my deep interest in vintage, masculine influences and more specifically, denim. I always find denim and innovate denim treatments inspiring and, at this point, it remains a core fabrication in many of my designs.

My new brand, Mined on Denim, is based on my collection that showed at New York Fashion Week in September of 2017 and an updated version with ready to wear items now shown online from February 2020. I poured everything I love into this collection and it is the ultimate expression of who I am as a designer. My goal is to create and grow my own, sustainable label where I can share the inspiration of my life and help bring about positive change in the fashion industry. With the right help, I know I can be a major, positive, leader and am determined to make a difference.

Sizing details

Sizing is fairly standard, but slightly on the slimmer side

Will items shrink or can I machine wash?

All are either cotton or natural fibers that will shrink. To avoid shinkage, hand wash in cold water or dry clean. If machine washing is preferable, then order one size larger. NOTE: denim color and texture will change with machine washing.
