Carina Donoso and The Third Piece:
One of the things we love most about Ms Fit For Society are the amazing people we meet along our fashion and fitness travels. So we were thrilled when Carina approached Ms Fit For Society about co-hosting a unique fashion and fitness event at Intermix earlier this fall. Not only was the event a ton of fun but also a total success, and to top it all off, we had the pleasure of getting to know Carina a little bit more. Putting on an event is no easy task; the planning, the phone calls, the meetings, the endless lists... what I think made it such a success was the excitement and energy that surrounded it from the start. Carina's fun spirit and enthusiasm really set the mood for our Fit-Fashion night. Everyone was laughing, having fun and doing a whole lot of shopping at Intermix. We were just so impressed by Carina's work ethic and truly just how straight-up cool she is. Personally knowing her passion for what she does and how hard she works makes us even more excited to share more about her company, The Third Piece.
"The Third Piece company started in the summer of 2012 with my girlfriend Kristen. We actually met at a bootcamp called "Drop 10" and became friends while we bitched about how much we hated mountain climbers.
Kristen, who has a background in finance always talked about wanting to start her own business. That summer I started knitting more and pitched to her an idea, which evolved with her collaboration with the Third Piece.
We are a hand-knit made in America company whose mission is to create jobs, and to make knitting sexy! We not only sell our ready made pieces, we also sell our Funky Chunky Merino wool, which is used to knit each one of our pieces. Funky Chunky is created by the Third Piece and available for sale on our website. After the new year we will be doing a soft launch of our knit kits; now your new creative outlet!"~Carina.
To our MsFit's in NYC - The Third Piece will be at Bergdorf Goodmans this Friday 11/21 and at the American Field Pop-up Market and Exhibition November 22nd-23rd, 274 36th street, Brooklyn, NY.
