Eczesoothe: A Blend of Purpose, Passion and Professional Skills

2021-01-07T16:42:52-05:00November 18th, 2020|OC Business|Comments Off on Eczesoothe: A Blend of Purpose, Passion and Professional Skills

Eczesoothe When Tierra Oliver’s daughter had eczema, a skin condition on her face, Oliver did not want to use a commercial steroid-laden treatment. She was a family nurse practitioner – and felt there had to be a more natural, organic alternative.⁣ ⁣ However, she couldn’t immediately find one. So, she put her medical knowledge, affinity for chemistry and a lifelong inquisitive nature to work. She knew that eczema is caused by an autoimmune process, so she focused on eczema’s interaction with layers of skin and how she could alleviate that process.⁣ ⁣ Oliver researched herbs and curatives from naturally occurring substances, and after trial and error, she came up with a salve that helped her Read More

2021-01-07T16:51:01-05:00November 6th, 2020|OC Business|Comments Off on Pillowcases to Fashion Design: The Shelli Scott Story

Scott said the pillowcases were for her security pillow and would be made and changed out like dresses on a doll. It was an early start for the woman who now has her own clothing line and is working out of The Accelerator space in Newburgh. A graduate of the Fashion Institute of Technology, Scott freelanced as a seamstress for years to polish her craft, working in places like Read More

November 3, 2020 The Hudson Valley city is home to a dozen start-up clothing companies, thanks in part to the Orange County Industrial Development Agency. At the turn of the 20th century, the City of Newburgh hummed with more than 100 factories —  many of them garment manufacturers. Then, like many urban areas over the years, it gradually fell into decline. But flash-forward to modern times and Newburgh — plus its mini fashion industry —  has been on the upswing again. Of course, since the pandemic hit, many of Newburgh’s manufacturing and other businesses —  as in the rest of the Hudson Valley and elsewhere —  have been in limbo, with some shut down and others reducing output. The Read More
