Local boutique owner designs clothing with sustainable materials
on January 28, 2016
Field Day and Friends is a local boutique that is part workshop, part brick and mortar store. Trinity Cross, owner and designer, creates her own patterns for women’s clothing using reused and sustainable fabrics. Cross searches for a variety of different fabrics, which means many of her designs are one-of-a kind.
All of Cross’s dresses are handmade and designed to flatter all feminine shapes. In addition to featuring her own line, she also features clothing and jewelry from over 80 local art makers who sell handmade goods in her shop on 19th street in Oakland. Field Day and Friends has been opened in Oakland since 2012 but Cross has been designing her line for over 10 years.
