Hi, We’re Daniel Feld and Wesley Nault, also known as WesFeld, the design team that won the Plastics Make It PossibleSM designer competition. The response we’ve been getting over the first few weeks, since winning, has been so wonderful! We are so excited to be part of this and about participating in New York Fashion Week. So, we thought we’d give everyone some insight as to how we got involved with Plastics Make It PossibleSM, and answer a few of the most popular questions we’ve been asked….
What’s the mood in the work studio?
We are pretty calm — unless the tension builds up, and then we may briefly butt heads. But, we are getting prepped for our first ever show at New York Fashion week after all! We’re working at such a frantic pace, trying to express our vision through our pieces that we haven’t had time to worry or be stressed – we barely have time to eat, sleep or take a shower! There have been times where we haven’t left our studio for three days! I know, kind of gross, right? But we are dedicated to our vision!
What has taken up the most time?
We have been spending many days and hours on one dress! This particular beauty involves 35 yards of plastic-based, nylon mesh fabric from four different places, which we then dye ourselves to get just the color combination we want. The effect lets us essentially create our own pattern. The dress is draped with grey and pink ruffles and layers – our hands ache from sewing it! But it’s a showstopper and we can’t wait to show it off to everyone.

What are you most looking forward to seeing at Fashion Week?
We’re looking forward to seeing the city come alive with people and seeing inspiration on every corner. It’s a magical time that the whole fashion community bands together to promote innovative thinking, new talent and to steer the trends for the forthcoming months. What do you want us to report on for the week? What are you most excited to see?
