Starre Awear 1

I was so honored to be featured on Kestrel Jenkin’s awesome project, AWEAR2014!

What is AWEAR? “AWEAR is a project intended to help inspire us to think about where our clothes are made, what they are made of, and who made them.”

The photos above and below were a fun eco fashion ensemble I put together to go to Portland (and for AWEAR, Day 46).

What am I wearing?
