How long have you been Upcycling/Refashioning/Recreating Clothing from thrifted textiles? 

Approximately 3 year

How long have you been sewing?

Approximately 3 years. Most of my work is done by hand.

How and why did you get started in Upcycling/Refashioning?

I used to make jewellery, and I  saw that people were making necklaces from textiles. This fascinated me, so I tried it. Then more and more ideas appeared that I could try. Then I was hooked.

Why do you Upcycle/Refashion/Recreate clothing from thrifted textiles?

I love to see how something that someone has discarded can be turned into something so unique, plus it saves textiles from landfill.

What type of clothing do you like to create and why?

I love to make beautiful, unique denim jackets. I see them as a blank canvas to create wearable art.

What is your favorite textile to Upcycle/Refashion/Recreate from? and why?

I love to work with denim.

What was your favorite project?

That’s a difficult question-it changes depending on my mood!
