68 lbs and Six Weeks to Go!

Day one.

Today began at 4 am with Myriam and the crew at Value Village.
I managed to pick as much as I could carry from the morning maintenance and headed home.
As soon as there was light I began sorting through my pile with my helper loos who sniffed out
the good finds!


I wasn't originally planning on using pinks and blues
but they seem to be dominating the pile...

68 lbs to Go Go Go

For the past few seasons Eco Fashion Week has been challenging local designers to transform 68 lbs of unwanted clothing into a collection featured during fashion week. Very happy to say that Young Oak will be taking on the challenge this April!



omg.
I may be buried for the next few months...

Stay tuned for documentation of the madness to come
