Up-Cycled Fashion And Honest Chats
The Mustard Jumper
24 January 2019
In our Autumn Issue of Ora Health & Wellness, we caught up with Danni France, founder of ‘The Mustard Jumper’ – a refreshing social media store re-selling vintage clothing and homewares. As well as her passion for re/upcycling fashion, through her channel she’s empowering and educating others with her heartfelt chats on emotional abuse and the warning signs of an emotionally abusive relationship.
Danni shares why we should consider sustainable re/upcycled clothing and furniture…
“Statistics reveal fast fashion is one of the most harmful things to our environment. I don’t think people realise how much of a big deal it is.
If you don’t buy second hand, try to be conscious about where you’re buying from. Research your brands, their ethics, and the sustainability behind the product. There are so many brands out there making sustainable fashion choices, it’s just about taking the time to find them.
Often, these brands do charge more because they haven’t done things cheap. They haven’t ripped off their workers – they’re making their products with good fabrics that are going to last years, not just months.
It definitely takes a while to figure out the best way to op-shop. I usually know what I’m looking for and I know the colours and styles that I like. If everything’s just a jumbled mess I won’t put pressure on myself to look through everything – sometimes it can just be too overwhelming!”
Our full interview with Danni with more on the secrets of sustainable shopping and emotional abuse awareness is available in our Autumn Issue.
