" I grew up surrounded by fabrics, clothing, sewing trims, sewing classes in a fabric store- owned by my family in Colombia. In 2018 is when I discovered all the negative impact “Fast Fashion” is having on people's health, the planet and the waste we are producing I then decided to learn more about it, to be a conscious consumer and to share my knowledge." -Claudia Franco-Slater
