“There is no time for cut-and-dried monotony. There is time for work. And time for love. That leaves no other time.” ― Coco Chanel 🎀💫 One of this week's WIP! Trying to level up my zero-waste game by using up fabric scraps or at least incorporating them into some of my pieces. I dream of the day I can confidently say that even the tiniest fabric cuttings and thread trimmings doesn't go to the trash.
My friend & fellow @pvssypowerhouse collaborator @reshell.brown was the first person I ever met that described themselves as being “zero waste” and she’s a dang specialist! She has taught classes at SMC on the subject, worked with the city on transitioning waste management and is now a private consultant. When I met her at #PussyPowerHouse Self Care, she was teaching folks how to make their own toothpaste, lotion and other skin care products, which are normally things that gravely contribute to our personal waste. She will be holding it down this Saturday amongst a bunch of other #zerowaste warriors at @pskaufman from 2p-10p after the @womensmarch!!
Check out my story to see what I’ve been doing to live more waste free!

Digging the #newtome earrings i recently ordered from @thredup Embroidered and tassel jewelry are in style....for the time being. First time shopper on their site but happy with my finds.
Has anyone else in #austin shopped at #thredup ? I don’t buy retail goods for clothes and accessories, so finding convenient second-hand fashionable items is a total score for me! #zerowasteliving#zerowastefashion#secondhandshop
Pussy Power House is excited to welcome @nnekagigi, a visual artist of many hats, to share her love of creating for a purpose. Come by and check out her custom painted furniture installation where you can take selfies with your friends, spill the tea or just to say hello!
Bring a shoe or two if you’d like for Nneka to paint on your own pieces live at the event! Hats, clothes, and skin are welcomed canvases as well. Also - maybe you’ll find something new at the clothing swap with @alchemyofwaste that you could have custom painted!
Zero Waste is about finding beauty in what is easily discarded. There is so much hidden beauty in items found on the street, in consignment shops and thrift stores. Every item we interact with on this earth was likely to be made by a human or owned by one. Therefore, these items hold so much energy and memories. Nneka attempts to honor old memories, good or bad, while repurposing the energy into something new.

WE ALMOST DON'T LEAVE ANY FABRIC WASTE . . . .
In a very limited amount, you can get my Zero Waste fashion item at D2-i store, Ciputra World Mall, Surabaya. One of them is the spiral pants design by Holly McQuillan, one of Zero Waste world initiator. The pants materials that I work on are Lurik ATBM fabrics (traditional hand weaving from Jogja). In the production process, we almost don't leave any fabric waste.
Together, you and me, -the shopper and the dressmaker-, we can reduce the burden of pollution that our Earth bears.
Regram @circularfibres A circular fashion system is what we at Project Selvage are working towards, with a brand new business model launching in February. ...
"Today’s textile industry is built on an outdated linear, take-make-dispose model and is hugely wasteful and polluting. The Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s report ‘A new textiles economy: Redesigning fashion’s future’ presents an ambitious vision of a new system, based on circular economy principles, that offers benefits to the economy, society, and the environment. We need the whole industry to rally behind it” - Ellen MacArthur.⠀⠀
"What really excites me about ‘A new textiles economy: Redesigning fashion’s future’ is that it provides solutions to an industry that is incredibly wasteful and harmful to the environment. The report presents a roadmap for us to create better businesses and a better environment. It opens up the conversation that will allow us to find a way to work together to better our industry, for the future of fashion and for the future of the planet" - Stella McCartney.
