Jillian Owens is a writer and designer from Columbia, SC. Facing a financial challenge in an attempt to stay up to date with the latest fashion trends she decided to take things into her own hands and create chic dresses from second-hand clothing she finds. Her goal was to look great and save some cash in the process. After looking at these pictures she has accomplished exactly that! These look like outfits that people spend hundreds of dollars on, Jillian just spent a few bucks and a little time to create these glamorous dresses.
“A few years ago, I decided I wanted to change the way the world thinks about fashion,“ she writes in her blog. “I was worried about the impact on our planet as people tossed out their one-time-wear duds more and more quickly.“
Jillian has taken fashion to a new place with her designs. She hopes to have an impact on the industry and the way we look at clothes that are out of style and simply tossed away. Jillian has taken these old dresses that nobody would be caught dead in these days and has made them into something beautiful that she is proud to wear anywhere. I love the fact that she is reusing old clothes that would otherwise be thrown away.
