A personal passion of mine is sustainable fashion. Fast fashion is one of the largest producers of waste for our planet and is deeply detrimental for the workers producing the clothing. I shop at vintage and consignment shops and love the concept of giving a discarded item a new life. I have also repurposed my grandmother’s wardrobe with the help of a tailor and wear these items with a true sense of pride.
