Hello all my fashion divas and gurus! As New York Fashion has come to a closed and I am still working on all my #NYFW adverture why not give you a great interview with a apparel company with a great cause. Today, I had the pleasure to talk to the Creative Director of Tremper T Apparel, Alicia Gentile. Tremper T Apparel is a great fashion company that helps underprivileged kids. Camp Herrlich, a non-profit children’s camp in Putnam County, that serves underprivileged kids from New York City. Tremper T Apparel.com is a 100% of the profits of each shirt will be donated directly to Camp Herrlich to help scholarship more children.
Here is how TremperTApparel.com came to be, so without further ado here is Heavy on Fashion talks to Tremper T Apparel!
How did Tremper T Apparel come to be?
Tremper T was born out of the idea that fashion and camping can co-exist.
One evening, after a few bottles of wine J, my siblings and I were sitting around in Astoria, Queens, thinking about ways that we could give back to a place that has given so much to us. I am not sure how else to put it, but Camp Herrlich is a magical place. It’s a place that can truly change your life. We wanted to help raise money to give inner city kids the opportunity to grow, learn and love, amongst the trees.
What is the mission behind Tremper T Apparel?
Tremper T Apparel’s mission is to help raise money to scholarship children to attend camp. It’s that simple. 100% of our profits benefit Camp Herrlich and their scholarship program.
How can others be a part of this cause?
Purchase a shirt! They are not only fashionable – and well made – but they have a social purpose.

What does fashion mean to you?
Fashion needs to be functional, but it also needs to inspire confidence. What you wear is the simplest form of how you express yourself. The Tremper T was designed so that regardless of your personal style you can find a home for it in your closet. It’s comfortable, made well, and versatile.
Until Next Time
