Collect Me is a handmade sustainable fashion brand created by fashion designer Zoë Yarwood.
In the Summer of 2011, after graduating with a degree in Fashion Design, I had the opportunity to undertake an internship in a sustainable fashion boutique, with space on the rails to sell my creations. I took this opportunity to launch my brand idea, turning reclaimed, recycled and unused fabrics into one-of-a-kind garments, moving away from the fast fashion trend and embracing the handmade and the unique.
I take inspiration from the fabrics I use, mixing bright colours and clashing prints. I design panels and pockets to help use the fabrics to their full potential, limiting waste to a minimum. I love 80's shapes and styles and you will always find a jumpsuit within my collection!
All items are handmade by me in my small studio in Frome, Somerset. You can occasionally find me sewing away at POOT Emporium, Frome, whilst also looking after the shop!
