This is an example of why my love for  modern Afro-fashion will  always go on


Putting old fabrics to good use

26 Oct

How does a 34 years old who has a husband, two children and lives in a small house in the forest edge with two cats and ten hens in the garden  do this.

See for yourself and pick a leaf or two 🙂


Elisa Kolle


How did I discover this beautiful work you may ask.

Well I recently entered a redesign competition and Elisa Kolle happens to be one of the top three that will probably win a 50,000NOK prize. Waiting to see if she will win. I was not part of the selected three  which is completely cool because the top three( and the other competitors) had products designs that are more prize-worthy than mine.

You can definitely try this at home

World challenge

12 Oct

A one of a kind competition was going on without my knowledge!!! Check this out

I  now have the pleasure of knowing about it. I discovered it through a friend, Marianna B, one of my fellow ‘green designers’ and was beyond inspired by what the competition is all about. Talk about global justice green style, OH ya!!! Something I thought was impossible is coming to life and catching on like wild-fire.

Check it out people and VOTE VOTE VOTE…

Reblog: the art of re use revisted

6 Oct

This hits straight home, the art of reuse is what Fretex thrift shops are all about.The highlight for me is the Eco friendliness of it all.

I’m revisiting the art of re use (already I know I just posted on them below). But I just found a documentary they made about their store in addition to some cute things cool things they’re doing with kids and had to share. Plus there are girls in the crew who need to be highlighted too!!! Plus (revisited) these are Toronto cats so real proud of the city.
