Guest Intro

Today’s guest may have had a frosty start to her career, but a passion for fashion soon transformed her mad snowboarding skills into a very cool clothing label.

Trading the slopes for the coast, this Torquay-based fashion designer has managed to evolve her garage-based gig into a sustainable business (in more ways than one). In the last 12 months alone, she’s transformed more than one million plastic bottles into faux fur.
