How to slow down your fast fashion habits - Part Two

Following our earlier post about upcycling, our designer had to refashion some new unwanted clothing.

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the profits from the sale of these upcycled styles will go towards the Courage Fund to support those affected by COVID-19.
