My name is Ronnie and I design clothes made almost exclusively from recycled materials. My online shop is www.glamarita.etsy.com. I use vintage t-shirts, neckties, other fabrics and clothing that would otherwise end up in a landfill. I love taking something that might currently be seen as outdated, tearing it apart and "upcycling" it into something new and modern. I tend to use a lot of color, coordinating/clashing prints and bold patterns. My clothes are quirky, unusual, one-of-a-kind and will definately get you noticed.
I also run a designer's/model's cooperative in Spokane called Runway Renegades. Once a year, we feature 5 local designers and 12 models, giving them a chance to strut their stuff. For the August 20,2010 show, we have filled all of our modeling positions but are looking for one more designer. We are encouraging the use of recycled materials, but it is in no way mandatory.
