ECOFW 2014: The 68 lbs Challenge

 The 68 lbs Challenge

The show is based on the fact that the average North American throws away 68lbs of clothing in a year. Tammy Joe, designer of Young Oak Vintage, tackled this opportunity to gather items from Value Village to rework and upcycle garments to show a runway worthy collection. This is idea goes to the heart of what Eco-Fashion week is all about: reuse not refuse.  SEE FULL SHOW HERE
