Makayla Wray rigged a hot dog cart and turned it into her mobile tailor shop. Surrounded by fast fashion brands and luxury stores in New York’s SoHo, she mends clothes on the spot to show people that their old clothes don’t have to add to the piles of waste created by the fashion industry.

  • As a guy who's always had an interest in clothes, I decided it was time I looked into making my own. I've bought a machine and when the shops open up again here in the UK, I'm heading out and buying up thread and needles to get going. It does make sense as times are teaching us that we can't just expect everything to just be there for us, we have to make fair choices, be resourceful and aware of what happens to the stuff we thoughtlessly throw away. High five, Makayla!

  • I was talking to a friend only yesterday about wanting to learn how to sew so I could repair clothes and make new ones and then this video pops up! I love her energy and vibe, she seems like she'd be a cool person to be friends with. And what she's doing is inspirational - I hope she has a lot of success. I love to see people pushing back against fast fashion. Fast fashion is a major problem ethically and environmentally and unfortunately it's something that often gets swept under the rug, when it really shouldn't.

You must focus, appear pleasant to the customers and happy to see she say she is helping common people to buy things that are muuuuch matter than brand new clothes

  • The fabric industry nowadays is based mostly on man-made synthetic fibers that should not exist. They plastic petroleum based. Bring back wool, cashmere, cotton, linen, and ramie and other natural fibers that are good for the environment and for us. She's very talented and enthusiastically energetic. Kudos to her.
