Once Upon A Time

‘Once upon a time . . .’   re-imagined clothes for little people evolved from a love of recycling and a desire to dress children as children, in clothes to feel good about. With a strong emphasis on the need for sustainability, I want to make clothing that challenges mass production and our ‘throw away’ society. I began imagining ways in which I could combine children’s clothing with the need for sustainable design. Drawing on a huge resource of pre-loved garments, carefully washing and hand (re)making them, I hope that both parent and child can appreciate this process as well as much as the garment.    From new to old and back again, ‘Once upon a time . . . re-imagined clothes for little people’ is about sustainable design and celebrating childhood too. www.emmajanechristie.com
