Name: Auh20 Hatched: October '06 Where: 84 E. 7th St. (between 1st and 2nd Ave) Come for... This dress made entirely of metro-cards spotted in the window! We thought it was the most amazing and literal translation of urban wear we had ever seen. "It's about recycling and making art out of garbage!" explained store owner Kate Goldwater who also designed the one of a kind piece. Stay for... Kate's reworked and reconstructed vintage pieces. Other offerings include a collection of consignment jewelry and metro-card ties and skirts which, unlike the dress, are actually for sale. Allowance: Shirts for $20 to $50, dresses and skirts from $45 to $150. And we care because...?: Kate's environmentally and socially conscious designs, like this dress, have to be seen to be believed. Plus you have to love a girl who wrote her senior thesis at NYU on art and clothing for social justice. We suggest you get on her good side by bringing your own eco-friendly shopping bag-- ten bonus points if it's made out of maxed-out credit cards... -KEVIN KHUONG
