This Woman Transforms Second-Hand Clothes Into Elegant Dresses

Jillian Owens is a Columbia SC- based writer and designer who decided to promote a different look into contemporary fashion. Facing some financial difficulties and feeling uneasy about the fast fashion of these days, she marched the second-hand shops to buy cheap, old, but promising clothes and started transforming them into chic new dresses.

A few years ago, I decided I wanted to change the way the world thinks about fashion,“ writes Owen in her blog. “I was worried about the impact on our planet as people tossed out their one-time-wear duds more and more quickly.

The project turned into a blog and a full-speed hobby in no time. With her stylish and creative works Owens promotes a truly inspiring idea that fashion can be ecological, ethical and cheap.

the woman is simply amazing. My favorite is the olive dress, with the longer hemline on one side and shorter on the other. So elegant, and genius. We want to see more!!
