Designing eco fashion has opened up a world to me that before I began I didn't know existed and to be honest the more I have looked and studied the less I wish I hadn't.
Before I started to make my own clothes out of reclaimed fabrics, I had no idea about how my clothes were made and I definitely never gave a thought about the people who made them or how the manufacturing process might damage our environment.
Food, fashion, lifestyle, health in fact every area of my life had become this complicated need to have endless items in order to fulfil a moments whim. Struggling to come to terms with sometimes not having enough money for the item I wanted and even if I managed to purchase it, the novelty soon wearing off and wanting something else.
This began my journey to be as frugal, organic, and un-wasteful as possible. I will blog about starting a garden, salvaging items destined for the landfill and making them into treasures, handmade gifts, repurposing clothes and furniture, diet, health, makeup and more.
I will attempt to become somewhat talented at things I do not like doing ie: cooking, baking, organising my sewing room, my diary, accounting and gardening as well as maintaining the things I love to do like creating, organising my label, the shop, and NZ Eco Fashion Week Ltd and hopefully along the way you will be inspired too lead a more simplistic lifestyle as I have been. To be honest as I even wrote that last sentence it is a wonder I actually manage to pull it off.
