Sustainable fashion

Who said fashion has to be someone else’s statement? You need to feel comfortable in what you wear every day and the best way to do that is learn how to sew your own clothes. This way you can wear something which truly represents you, which tells your story. “Make fashion your personal statement.”

Aren’t you tired of shopping off the peg? I am! Shopping have always been a passion of mine but over the years it turned more and more into a frustrating matter. Fashion the way we know it, fast fashion, brings us to buy disposable clothes that don’t represent who we are.

Wearing something we made with care means choosing our physical and mental well-being. ‘Cause surrounding ourselves with beauty makes us feel good, don’t you think?

Learning how to sew was kind of a revelation to me. Yes, I literally fell in love! I realised how much good energy there is behind a handmade garment and I got to know myself better in the process. Through what I choose to wear.

That’s what “Sew your style, wear your dreams” means: the idea of wearing something that makes you feel yourself. I made a mission out of this promoting a different way of thinking about fashion, a slow and sustainable way where you’re the one who chooses consciously, sewing for your DIY wardrobe.
I believe we have the power to change our shopping habits going for a more sustainable and conscious way of wearing clothes.
We can no longer disregard this matter: our planet deserves better and we deserve better. Sustainability is a path made of everyday choices. This is why with The Yellow Peg you can start your own journey aiming for a sustainable wardrobe.
