Our DIY Projects Style Principles

We love to create fashionable garments, accessories, and gifts while adapting more environmentally conscious lifestyle.

DIY Whenever Possible

From designing, upcycling, dyeing, to sewing and embellishing (sometimes glueing), we love to be creative.

Shop Local or Secondhand

When it’s time to invest on statement pieces that are hard to make ourselves, we purchase them from local designers or secondhand shops.

Be mindful of materials

We love to “rescue” fabric / paper remnants and use them optimally, as well as minimize water use for dyeing.

The result is an enchanting cage dress that’s somewhat fragile yet bold, and I styled it with 80s influence of pearls and fingerless gloves.
