Mariana is committed to reworking and upcycling clothes by inspiring others to restyle and create a quality finish. Having a formal training in fashion design and working in the bridal and special occasion wear, she has turned her passion into respecting the environment by moving into refashioning and upcycling garments already in circulation.
Mariana was part of the upcycled fashion collection at the Eco Fashion Week in Perth, Western Australia. She has successfully published an article about an upcycled leather jacket in the international magazine Altered Couture, USA.
Mariana is thrilled to inspire the local community towards a better, sustainable life – by reducing waste and going natural and organic, by reusing, repairing and repurposing in a unique creative way.
We are blessed at The Sound Temple to have Mariana join us in the Perth Hills as part of our Common Threads Project.
Common Threads – Woven through Community is a month long community engagement project proudly brought to you directly following the World Fashion Revolution week held in late April each year.
This exhibition includes topics of integrating sustainability, creativity, and traditional hand-crafted wisdom of the ages. These events are designed for you to leave feeling deeply inspired to become part of a brand new impulse of considerable change.
