Simply adorable fashion.
Make Amend is a new fashion label by emerging designer Cassandra Pons that captures the charm of yesteryear with a fun modern edge. She creates fashion and accessories from recycled materials, using handmade and redesigning techniques. All items are one of a kind and unique for you.
Make Amend is an ethical fashion label as all garments and accessories are hand crafted by this young designer. Recycled materials are used always, breathing new life into vintage fabrics and garments. “This is my way of making a difference in the world, minimising waste and opening people’s eyes to a fashion with a conscience” says Miss Pons.
Make Amend began as a hobby for Cassandra, who has been artsy and creative for as long as she can remember. It was in high school though that her passion for fashion took off. She was passionate about her studies of Home Economics and Art, and also about wanting to express herself through fashion. There are limited boutiques in Townsville, (Australia) and Cassandra felt frustrated at the lack of unique fashion available. She began redesigning clothes for her own wardrobe, but it wasn’t until other people started requesting her designs that she thought about taking fashion seriously.
Cassandra worked hard to establish her label, and has now taken the plunge making it a full-time business at age 18. Make Amend is stocked at a local artist/designer hub Artisans on Flinders where Cassandra works from her studio and sells her designs. She has been in contact with stockists for her label, and also sells online. She plans to use her label to educate people about making informed decisions about fashion.
