Nicole Dextras

The portfolio of work by Nicole Dextras entitled Weedrobes reminded me of the workshop we had with Tim Johnson last spring. (Thank you)

"My personal interest in the fashion industry stems from growing up in my mothers ladies clothing store where I learnt how to discern quality manufacturing and the importance of shopping local. in my teens, I witnessed the poor working conditions in garment factories and the effects of chemicals used in treating fabrics, while working in a non union sweatshop." "The weedrobes philosophy . . . is about creating ones own sense of style while also raising awareness about the impact of industry on our eco-system." Nicole Dextras
