Every community has their go-to handyman, the person you can call at five in the morning to fix your running toilet. But who do you call when you need a complete closet overhaul? Esme Iglarsh. Her start-up business, Plan-it EJ, can do anything from reapplying buttons to your favorite blouse, or transforming your old curtains into a pair a trendy shorts. Since she is a trained fashion designer, Iglarsh is very familiar with textiles and sewing, so no request is too difficult.
During these rough economic times, Iglarsh realizes that many people would rather recycle their old and current clothing than go out and buy brand new garments. She notes that one of her customers requested that their old zebra-print skirt be transformed into a handbag.
