The Hilbert Project

We had an exclusive interview with designer Schjanna Rydenour from the Hilbert Project.  In the video, Rydenour shows us a few key looks from the fall 2010 collection. The Hilbert Project’s philosophy is to make great clothes in a better way. They support local manufacturing, sustainable practices and fair wages. Even the design studio is powered by electricity from wind and water. The name of the brand is based on the mathematician David Hilbert, who had a list of problems he wanted to solve, and this brand solves the problem of what to wear. The Hilbert Project delivers smart, functional fashion with a conscience. Watch the interview below:
