Dejavu NYC team aligned us around one mission: providing the best customer service experience possible. We view fashion as an investment, and value quality over quantity.
Extending the life of garments is the best thing we can do to reduce the fashion industry’s environmental impact on the planet. The simple act of taking care of the clothing we have. This includes washing and storing items correctly as well as mending and altering as time sees fit. Extending the life of your garments means that we seldom have to buy new ones, thus doing more to control emissions, waste, water consumption, and poor conditions for workers, all concerns that stand hand-in-hand with fast fashion.
At Dejavu we know our customers are more than just customers. We are all in this together as sustainability warriors! Investing in a product that lasts over time and that can be mended is the best step towards minimizing our environmental footprint. We have a simple but crucial message: wear and mend what you already own for as long as possible. In addition to environmental benefits, increasing the lifespan of your clothing and avoiding buying new is a vote for a more sustainable future for you, your family, and all those affected by negative effects of the fast fashion industry.
By incorporating new technology within the fashion industry, Dejavu Tailoring has made saving the environment easier than ever. Of course, everything that leaves our shop is of the highest quality sewing. This way your garments last as long as possible. We see clothing not as a disposable good, but as an investment that will save you money, time, and guilt. In addition to in-house alterations, we have developed our website to offer alterations across the United States. That’s right, pin your alterations at home, mail them to Dejavu, and receive your newly tailored clothing back in a couple of weeks. Never has it been so easy to make sure your clothes fit and flatter your body properly.
As you know by now, altering and repairing your clothes has a significant impact on your carbon footprint and now we offer this service in addition to being an eco-friendly alternative to buying new. This service also saves our customer’s time by allowing them to order all the alterations they need from the comfort of their own home.
At Dejavu, we collaborate with great designers across the USA, and consistently provide low minimum order quantities. This way we can try to produce only what is needed, while also allowing us to upcycle unsold garments. In addition to this, we use all the scrap fabrics we have laying around to create new and unique pieces, such as scrunchies and masks, that are for sale in our boutique. This way nothing goes to waste.
We strive to tread those thin lines between art and fashion by devoting our focus on the ever changing culture of this city for the women who inhabit it. We immerse our clients in some of the most exclusive ready to wear pieces while they bask in the décor and ambiance that our art gallery boast. Our tailoring services have been featured in DailyFinance and the New York Daily News.
