FashionMash Workroom is an interdisciplinary program in the UNC School of Media and Journalism focused on branding for the fashion and lifestyle industry

In FashionMash Editorial, I have had the opportunity to interact with designer brands, envision and prep for shoots, and develop my post-production skill.

The production process is not exempt from Elvis and Kresse’s standard of ethics. All employees are paid fair wages and never subject to unsafe working conditions.

The opportunity to accompany my cohort of 10 other certificate program pursuants under FashionMash was an unforgettable experience.

Reflecting on the incredible opportunity I was afforded through The Don and Barbara Curtis Excellence Fund to join UNC Hussman’s FashionMash Certificate Cohort on an industry trip to London, England.

Being at the epicenter of one of the world’s greatest fashion capitals was an indispensable opportunity to learn from trailblazers in the sustainable sector of the fashion industry.

One such emblem of sustainability was Elvis and Kresse, a brand built on the principle of rescuing, recycling and reimagining waste under a designer label:  Forging a new sector of high-end retail by prioritizing sustainability without compromising luxury.

From donated materials acquired through the London Fire Brigade to the Burberry Foundation, 100% of materials used in their production process are recycled and ethically sourced.

With materials ranging from leather waste, to parachute silk to tea sacks, Elvis and Kresse redefine materials classified as “waste” by repurposing their value through craftsmanship and innovation.
