With the experience and the environment, I was now in I have been able to start and execute a clothing apparel line. where I make everything in-house as well as purchase a pre-existing company that I now own and operate solely. Both companies are recycle companies where we recycle apparel rather it be to take it apart and use the materials to make other beautiful pieces or to simply resale it to another person that would love to have it at a very affordable price.
