Nothing Like a Deadline

After amassing (ahem, hoarding) a room full of vintage potential projects it is time to edit and redesign the lost and forgotten fashion of yesteryear. Just in time for Eco Fashion Week. There is nothing like a deadline to get something started!

To achieve great things, two things are needed: a plan and not quite enough time.

A Love Affair

I have always had a long standing love affair with secret details, intelligent design and all things nostalgic. The day vintage fashion entered my world I was transported to a time when craft and quality paralleled design and aesthetic. Young Oak is on the hunt for all castaways... your trash might be my treasure!
