RinFsuccessfully produced a collection composing 10 dresses and 3 accessories using fabric waste and other waste material that were recycled/upcycled for the collection’s production.
While the fashion collection will be presented during a Euro-Mediterranean fashion show in Palermo, Italy, in July 2021.
