Collection 1 fittings. This was my favorite look. Bomber jacket is made from @jamesrpalmisano HM shorts. Pants are made from 5 pairs of my dads Levi's. Tshirt has the definition of "Shoddy" heat pressed over an Oxford t-shirt. Definition: Worthless material made to look like what is of superior quality. . . . . . #enough #changingyourrelationshipwithclothes #upcycle #recycle #whomademyclothes #imadeyourclothes #truecost #fashionrevolution #endfastfashion #fashionisajoke #shoddy #savetheearthreuseashirt #sustainable fashion #thoughtfulfashion #slowfashion at Pratt Institute

Looking back at fittings from Collection 1, as I am finishing Collection 3. Grateful for the opportunity I had for talented models like @olivia_anakwe to wear my pieces. It is inspiring to see how her career has taken off since then 🌟girl power. (First pic) This piece has a sweater trapped inside. (Second pic) pants made from dads old khakis and tshirt trapped in shirt. . . . . . . . #enough #changingyourrelationshipwithclothes #upcycle #recycle #whomademyclothes #imadeyourclothes #truecost #fashionrevolution #endfastfashion #fashionisajoke #shoddy #savetheearthreuseashirt #sustainable fashion #thoughtfulfashion #slowfashion at Pratt Institute

My dad modeling the Florida Shirt in the Everglades is everything! He is a natural. I recently made this shirt from thrifted t-shirts, all happening to be Florida themed. More shirts like this will be coming so stay tuned! This one will be up for grabs in October. If you don't want someone to get it before you, DM me and I will hold it for you. . . . . . . #enough #changingyourrelationshipwithclothes #upcycle #recycle #whomademyclothes #imadeyourclothes #truecost #fashionrevolution #endfastfashion #fashionisajoke #shoddy #upcycle #recycle #savetheearthreuseashirt #sustainablefashion #thoughtfulfashion #slowfashion #savetheocean #savethewhales #savethedolphins #savetheturtles #protest #cleanwater #protectouroceans #everglades #floridaeverglades #florida #floridaalligator #floridaturtles at Everglades, Florida

Fast fashion not only has horrible affects on the people making a majority of your clothes but also our oceans and marine life. In the next pictures are my parents doing their part in the fight to protect our oceans. So many dolphins,fish, and manatees have been washing up dead from all the pollution from factories and the giant agricultural farms dumping their waste into the surrounding waters of Florida. I love that I have parents who care, care enough to do something. And that they have passed this on to me. I'll also attach an article about plastics being in our clothes for you to read if you'd like to have a better understanding! Keep swiping. . . . . . . #enough #changingyourrelationshipwithclothes #upcycle #recycle #whomademyclothes #imadeyourclothes #truecost #fashionrevolution #endfastfashion #fashionisajoke #shoddy #savetheearthreuseashirt #sustainable fashion #thoughtfulfashion #slowfashion #savetheocean #savethewhales #savethedolphins #savetheturtles #protest #cleanwater #protectouroceans #ocean #whales #dolphins #florida #manatee at Naples, Florida

I saw a type of plant that grows just from dust floating in the air and landing on a tree, baby gators, a flower called "seven sisters" that gets its name from a star constellation whose star burnt out so now it's only 6, a flower called buttonwood because the Native Americans (who still live here) would use them to make buttons for their shirts, pink snail eggs, and many big pterodactyl like birds. It felt as though I was seeing the earth at its beginning stages. The amazing affect of the dark water acting as a mirror for the sky trapping me between two infinite spaces above and below reminded me of my smallness but how I to am here to reflect my creator.........we cannot let our greed, consumerism, and wasteful mind set wipe the existence of the Everglades. Let's reflect light back up, not just consume and destroy. . . . . . #theeverglades #miccosukee #everglades #savetheeverglades #floridaalligator #sevensisters #buttonwood #saveouroceans #dosomething at Everglades, Florida

These last few post have been more personal because I want you guys to see who I am and what I'm trying to communicate through my work. Most of the time I just post what I make but here's a bit more of me. Thanks for following my journey and supporting sustainable and thoughtful fashion. Back to photos of my work!
