When Ashley Alexis MacFarlane couldn’t find the clothing she was looking for in stores, she decided to design it herself. She is now the creative force behind her own clothing brand, Omi Woods, which uses recycled materials and fabrics. Ashley’s philosophy is led by a passion for creating beautiful tailor-made pieces that will make her clients feel great.
Passionate about sustainability and ethical fashion, Ashley also uses fabric created with recycled materials such as water bottles to create graceful, useful and unique pieces.
Ethical fashion for Ashley is about much more than aesthetics. It’s about the individual. Her pieces are often customized for her clients with unique patterns and prints, and celebrate the diversity and individuality of each of them.
We spoke to Ashley about her passion for sustainable fashion as well as the mastery of her craft.
