New York City-based Meiling Chen premiered her sustainable collection "Fearless Dreamer" in 2008. She says, "I am constantly adding new pieces to my collection and I aim to create season less clothes. I also do not follow common trends." Her designs have been shown with "House of Organic" during New York Fashion Week and at the GreenShows. Meiling follows waste-free processes, mixes her own plant-based and low-impact dyes, and works with carefully procured organic cotton, hemp, hemp silk blends, and organic wool.
