In an age where sustainability is taking over fast fashion, thrifting for vintage clothes is a genius option. In this video, I’m going to cover 8 tips for successful vintage shopping.
In this blog, I will discuss the fast fashion model from an operations perspective and talk about its harmful effects on consumer perception, garment workers, and the environment, as well as what you can do to mitigate the harmful effects.

In this video, I discuss what upcycling is, what makes it sustainable, and how I will be using it for my brand. So let’s get started! Sooooo...What is Upcycling? Upcycling is the epitome of one man's trash is another man’s treasure. As a designer, especially a new designer, I don’t have a ton of capital to work with, but I do know that there is a ton of waste in fashion, making upcycling a more creative and economical approach for me.

In this video, I will discuss what a circular fashion economy is and how it can decrease waste in the fashion industry, specifically from a fashion design perspective.
