Elia is from Paris, France and studies Sustainable Development at the University of Edinburgh. She tries to engage in sustainability issues as much as possible and to be part of the solution, as the environmental and social crises are worsening globally. Recently, as the impact of the fashion industry on the world has caught her attention, Elia has become more involved in sustainable fashion. She started her social media page @fash_flip to show people how old clothing, or any random material (cardboard, records, can openings, curtains…), could be used to create new pieces of personalized clothing. She wants to inspire people to engage with, and change, their purchase behaviour, which is why she is very excited to be working with Fashion Takes Action to continue promoting sustainable fashion.
