About

Find Glad Rags on Facebook  - Twitter -  Instagram -  Pinterest

Positive change never goes out of style! We are gearing up for a cross-country road trip to uncover and document the life cycle of clothing through the people who buy, sell, love and live vintage.  Glad Rags will be produced as a series of short episodes (8-12 minutes each), released on the web as a multi-part documentary filmed across the U.S.  If funded, this Kickstarter campaign will assist in the creation of Season One of the Glad Rags series.

Vintage clothing is unique - it's green! Every piece of clothing has a story that shouldn't have an end. This is our chance to continue that story. Part of what makes vintage clothing special is that one-of-a-kind vintage pieces are not only fashionable, they are environmentally friendly. It’s our job to help prevent unique and valuable textiles from making their home in landfills instead of in our closets!

Our mission is to shed light on the underground industry that is vintage and the history of the textile industry that created it.  We will illustrate how easy it is to become a part of the sustainable fashion movement while reducing your carbon footprint, and look good doing it!

We're Brianne and Vallerie, the Glad Gals!  We will be traveling across the U.S. during the month of August to unravel the story of vintage and sustainable fashion. With your help we will be able to travel and interview shop owners, experts in textiles and lovers and wearers and bloggers of vintage. We will work together to build our Glad Gang of vintage and textile connoisseurs to demonstrate to the masses how easy it is to travel, thrift and shop with a go-green initiative.

You will find the Glad Gals in Vallerie's little Scion heading down the East Coast from Boston through Washington D.C., the Carolinas and then Florida.  Next we plan to head Northwest to Atlanta and Tennessee, then to Louisiana, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and finally, Los Angeles.  Along the way we will be discovering the story of vintage, collecting accessories and cards for your rewards, and learning something new every day!  Do you know a person or place of vintage  or textile interest on our route?  E-mail us at gladragsdoc@gmail.com and it would be our pleasure to meet and interview them!

If we reach our goal, this Kickstarter campaign will fund Season One of the Glad Rags multi-part documentary web series. More specifically, we'll use the funds to help with the categories below...

We, the Glad Gals, come to you as filmmakers, photographers, avid thrifters and Do-It-Yourselfers so your rewards for pledging to support us will be coming straight from our hands and hearts. Your rewards may be on the road finds, handmade by us or exclusive insider content to introduce you to your spot in the Glad Gang.  Each reward has a touch of Glad because we want you to be a huge part of this story, especially if you have one to tell yourself.  

Head over to the right column to check out Rad Glad Rewards we have in store for you for pledging your support and remember, always Kick It Forward.  If successful, we ourselves pledge to back future Kickstarter projects for their creativity and determination to make their ideas a reality.  

Risks and challenges

Creating Glad Rags: Filming a documentary series will open us up to the unexpected and we don't know exactly how the story will pan out. Even just in the early stages so far, the passion for sustainable fashion we've seen in our first encounters has already begun to shape the story of Glad Rags. Every place we go and person we meet will have an unknown story at first, but we are confident that the shop owners, vintage lovers and green thinkers that we meet along the way will share and strengthen that passion.

Road-tripping: Filming a series on a road trip across the country will force us to put our trust in the universe to guide our way. Scheduling conflicts, possible car troubles and equipment issues loom on the horizon. However, we’re staying glad, staying positive and keeping our focus on spreading the story of vintage and sustainable fashion to make our world a better place, in style!

Going Green: Although it's our way of life, sometimes you forget that item can be reused or upcycled, that food can be composted and that garment can be washed. On the road we will face the challenge of living and traveling green and also sticking to fresh and local foods and goods. If we are looking a hard decision in the face, where will we turn? We will turn to you, our supporters, backers, friends and family. Follow us on our journey and we will no doubt be reaching out to you for green and healthy advice and tips along the way.
