Hi. Thanks for looking around my shop!

Here, the style will very often include lots of color, unique shapes and designs. I strive to create items that will make you feel confident when you wear or carry them. I feel that clothing and accessories are an extension of each person's individuality. Personal fashion should reflect your personality, not overwhelm it.

A large part of my desire to reconstruct is my love for the environment. The fashion industry generally produces a lot of waste and impact on the environment. I am striving to help reduce the fashion industry's environmental impact. Those second-hand clothes left behind are just waiting for a third, and golden, opportunity to shine!

Although my creations come from second-hand clothing, they are all inspected, washed & line dried prior to deconstruction. I do not use a dryer both for environmental reasons and to preserve the integrity of the clothing; but as most of my items are entering their third life, I am pretty sure they would be able to handle a low dryer setting if you dry them.

Enjoy browsing!
