Sarah and Julia are sisters and after having their own separate careers they came together to launch an Up-cycling fashion brand. They sold a lot of their work in Cardiff Markets and after that they had many successful projects working with charities and running workshops. When they were speaking it was very clear that they are passionate about what they do and what they stand for. They really believe sustainable textiles is the only way forward and this is something that really resonates with me. I’m really interested in looking in looking into Transparent textiles so you know where they are coming from and who made them. I feel very strongly about being a smart consumer and as a designer I feel responsible to bring sustainable designs to people.
Their latest venture is opening The Sustainable Studio. It is similar to the INC space in uni and I think its a lovely opportunity to get started after uni. I feel that the appeal of this studio is that it is away from uni so will feel more professional. However it is a communal space with support from other artists and designers.
