We had such a fun time last night at ‘The Feel Good Series – An Evening of Styling Sensibility’ event, Co-hosted by The R Collective, Denise Ho, Creative Director of The R Collective and Adele Leung, Personal Stylist and Body Confidence Presenter.
We heard from Denise why the current collection from The R Collective ‘Start From Zero’ was special as it was created using only up-cycled material and with as little as only 1% fabric-waste. One jacket is in fact zero waste (not an easy task – and anyone who has cut a dress-pattern will know!). The industry average for fabric wastage with most garments as around 10-20% apparently.

Adele then talked about how she finds beauty in everyone. According to Adele, ‘waste’ is also in mindset – when we have negative thoughts about ourselves and our bodies – this amounts to a type of ‘wastage’ in ourselves. The take-away was to concentrate on the parts of your body you do love, versus the parts you would rather hide.

The style guru’s called up some volunteers from the audience to be styled in The R Collective and HULA products. All seven volunteers had fun playin’ dress-up and the girls showed us how versatile the Start From Zero collection really was.
Thank you to all those who came and see you at the next HULA Happenings event!
Incase you missed it, we still have The R Collective Start From Zero Collection on display and for sale at the HULA warehouse (Psst… we are offering 10% off for TRC purchases here – so hurry!)
