Submerged

When the new UN report on climate change was published, it stated we only had 10 years or less to halt or reverse our production of greenhouse gases to prevent the 1.5 degree Celsius mark from being past. This angered me to no end. Especially since almost all the countries in the world aren't taking it seriously, or aren't doing anything at all. Since I feel we need to do more than protest marches to make a difference, I created this collecion from 100% reclaimed garments; effectively diverting post consumer retail waste from landfills and eliminating the need to create new material production waste altogether.

It may be just a small drop in the ocean, but a little can go a long way if you utilize the proceeds properly. The proceeds would go to non-profits and organizations helping cities and communities become more sustainable in everyday lives. 

Each look I named to portray a R.A.V.A.G.E.D. Fate. Ramona, Aelin, Victoria, Agathe, Gaia, Echo, Dalia, and Moira (which means fate). Each woman is strong in her own right and determined to make this planet a better place to live.

This look is Aelin.
