My love of clothes has always been with me, even if my fashion sense is not particularly on trend.
However, I believe strongly that it does not matter what one wears so long as the wearer feels good in it - this is one of the reasons I studied Costume with Textiles, to learn about how clothes were traditionally made and how this could be applied to modern fashion. Moreover, I have been able to channel this passion for difference into my business 'oo arh!' and find news ways of creating exciting clothes through up cycling - with one eye on the environment and practicing a sort of mindfulness about how much wastage and materials I use.
Trading at festivals gives me an amazing opportunity to have 'live' customer research and feedback, which was invaluable for the evolution of oo arh!
I am happy to answer any questions and to take enquiries, so don't be shy!
