Thrifted Pieces Made Trendy Through Tailoring

See the story on these simple clothing alterations to give new life and style to thrift store finds.

Late last year, Magdalena Antuña, who is the founder and editor-in-chief of Selva Beat,  reached out to us to help with a special project. Selva Beat is a magazine that focuses on the environmental aspects of beauty, fashion, culture, food, sex, and love.

She was looking for someone who could alter and re-style garments she had found at a thrift store. The goal was to demonstrate that it’s actually possible to extend the life of clothing, and not succumb to the pressures of fast-fashion. This turned out to be the perfect match because we are big supporters of sustainable fashion and earth-friendly lifestyles, and try to integrate these practices into what we do at Ronkita Design. Magdalena also has a passion for sharing information and alternatives to products and practices that negatively impact the environment, plus we share some of the same thoughts on style. 😉

Below are just a few examples of the finished pieces. Check out the full article to see where they started from, the inspiration for the alterations, and the final transformations.
