Last night Carlie Wong presented her evening wear collection made especially for Value Village’s 68-pound challenge at Eco Fashion Week. The average North American throws away 68 pounds of textiles and clothing every year! Inspired by that, Value Village asked Wong to create an entirely fresh collection out of 68 pounds of second hand clothing. Wong said she searched for high quality fabrics, and then completely repurposed the pieces to make elegant dresses. The end result is truly inspiring. We’re proud to have a half-decent thrifted outfit, and this genius made an entire line of gorgeous gowns!
