Transforming Textile Waste Into New Fashion with La Réunion

Named after the island off the coast of Madagascar, La Reunion is Nigerian-American Sarah Nsikak's hard work and creativity come to life. Having worked in the fashion industry for several years after completing a Masters Degree in Art Therapy, Nsikak noticed the exorbitant amount of waste generated in the fashion industry and was inspired to create La Réunion: quilted, vibrant, one of a kind garments hand made by Nsikak with love. All Nsikak's pieces are made exclusively using recycled material sourced from fashion designers based in New York.
