From HIMANE's Video Archives

We thought we would begin the week by looking back at two notable HIMANE appearances.

The first video below is a television interview Catherine Charlot did with MSNBC, which aired on October 11, 2009. As you will see from the clip, Catherine is frank about the struggles she faces as a small business owner in this unstable economic environment, but her enthusiasm, love, and talent for sustainable fashion and upcycling shine through.

The second video clip is actually a slide show Catherine created, using photographs from our successful "UpCycle Your Look" event at The Green Spa & Wellness Center on October 22, 2009. We will keep you posted about all of our future events, so stay tuned!
