Green Monday is today which I automatically interpreted as shopping for greener products but it is actually about shipping time before X-mas to make some green before it is too late.
If only it was the time everyone bought green goods, products that help the planet and the quality of life for all.
Today there is an Upcycle Summit in downtown LA, The Inaugural Upcycle Gathering featuring a litany of people determined to help the planet through innovative ideas focusing on upcycling in construction, agriculture(compost) and commerce. The tagline for the summit is how to keep everything out of the landfill.
The Altered Couture published a story about Salad Bowl Dress…
The Blouse is perfect for casual comfort.
The Blouse is made from those shirts in the back of your closet doing their best to be kept out of the landfill. All the blouses are cut for simple comfort and artful color combinations. There are no two alike but all are uniquely the same.
Jane looks so cute we had to put her here!
This year has been fantastic with two memorable fashion shows, one at the Museum of Art and History (MoAH) Lancaster, and another at Coastline Community College in Newport Beach with Santino Rice (from project runway first season fame) as the curator. Find links here to our YouTube page to see a show.
The new year is on its way and is proving to be an interesting time in America. On another note we have had rain in California that I love. But all that aside I would like to thank all of you who have purchased clothes from me. You seem to share a kindred spirit or simply a love of fashion and I am grateful. Thanks to those of you who have stopped by the studio to check things out and see the latest creations. One new customer wants to buy one a month.
