I thought I’d give you a little more information about the RISE movement since this will be my third post about it in as many weeks, haha! You can link through to the website here and check out the clothes (and my natural, youthful make-up on the two lovely models )
There’s a lot of really nice stuff to buy, so head on over and have a look (I really like “smoking” and “beaches”). You can check out more information about the collections and designers too! Here’s the blurb from their website:
Inspired by the eternal life-cycle of the Phoenix, RISE is a social enterprise committed to fueling mass market demand for used and upcycled clothing.
All RISE pieces are made from Ashes (donated clothing).
By creating high quality, designer outfits from these Ashes, RISE strives to redefine how the vast majority of society views buying second-hand. Basically what we’re doing is bringing sexy back to thrift.
RISE is not only dedicated to sustainability, but also to youth empowerment and the creative arts. 100% of RISE pieces are designed and created by local youth fashion designers. Through RISE, young designers have an opportunity to explore their creative skills in a professional environment, and to make money doing what they love.
Our logo – The Red Feather – allows those who wear RISE to proudly communicate their beliefs and association to the movement, in style.
Now after over a year of designing and creating our spirited collection, RISE is ready to launch.”
