About

Passion meets Cause; My journey with sustainable fashion

My love for sustainable fashion came my freshman year of high school when I was taking environmental science and my teacher arranged an assembly from an organization called ACE (Alliance for Climate Education).
The assembly talked about everything I had learned in Conservation Club that previous year but did it all through an animated presentation so that it would grab our attention. I was intrigued to hear about their green fashion runway competition; Project Greenway. I applied and was excited to see other Chicago high school students who had designed with the earth in mind. We used materials like plastic bags, newspaper,tissue paper,etc and we re-purposed them into beautiful one of kind garments.
After the show, feeling inspired to share how beautiful saving the Earth could be I created KiwiNation so I could not only save the earth but combine it with my passion for fashion design.
I'm currently a fashion design major with a minor in sustainability at Kent State University and enjoy updating my product line as I learn new skills.

Fashion Design is my passion, Sustainability is my mission and KiwiNation allows me to do it all !

    I've always had a passion for saving the earth and fashion design, but it wasn't until a few years ago that I decided to combine the two! Ever since I've been creating wonderful crafts and fashions from re-purposed and recycled materials.
