Poisonous waste is in trend this season.

The $188 frock is designed by UZI NYC, which is manufactured in Sundown Park.
However it was the retailer, not designer Mari Gustafson who named it.
When she first noticed the moniker, “I assumed, ‘We’ve got designed the Superfund-site costume,’” Gustafson advised The Put up. “That is for when you costume in your loopy mud boots as you are selecting industrial waste out of the Gowanus canal.”
Anthropologie, which is owned by the identical dad or mum firm as City Outfitters, saved with a Kings County theme for different gadgets in the UZI NYC spring assortment — you can additionally purchase the Park Slope, Ditmas Park and Carroll Gardens clothes. The shop didn’t return a request for remark.
“I assumed it was cute that the names they picked have been South of Atlantic Avenue. I’m a giant believer in South Brooklyn,” Gustafson, a Bay Ridge resident, mentioned. “North Brooklyn has been bought to European pursuits. Actual Brooklynites can’t afford to reside there.”
