While the fashion industry is very glamorous, it is a very hard nut to crack from a business perspective. Justin interviews Eva Kisevalter, one of those few designers who has cracked that nut.

Eva Kisevalter is a successful fashion designer and devoted thrift shopper who cleverly combined her love of pop graphics with her addiction to cashmere to create the fashion brand, Stella Neptune.

Before she was a designer, Eva was a DJ back in the day when real records were played on real turntables. Her DJ name was and still is Stella Neptune -- also the name for her fashion designs. Her designs are inspired by the classics -- with a twist -- using recycled cashmere. Each item is sourced, designed, sewn, and hand screen printed in LA. Everything is done within a 10 mile radius of her studio.

Eva believes her obsession with recycled clothing just happens to be a better way to make new things without feeling guilty about all the waste and excess in the world. The end result is creating eco fabulous designs.

A designer to the celebrities, Eva's designs are sold internationally. Her designs also are regularly spotted on the red carpet for premiers, were selected for "Desperate Housewives," and were featured on Martha Stewart.
