Still wearing fast fashion? That's awkward.
It's time to say goodbye to fast fashion with threads that match your morals.
We create streetwear for thrifters made from recycled and biodegradable materials. No plastics, no polyester, no new materials — ever. From the product to the packaging, everything is reusable, recycled or repurposed.
CANCEL CONSUMER CULTURE
Thrift shopping and living sustainably is an activist movement. Consumer culture has taught us to buy without thinking, but that has to end. We're clogging our planet with our greed and there's no end in sight.
Why not help the planet with your closet instead?
"Fight back against the fashion establishment’s apathy towards their repulsive impact on our environment."
AK Bryan has lived by this mantra since starting her Instagram and blog account in early 2019. Finding herself frustrated with a closet full of low-quality clothes that fell apart immediately, she set out to find a way to hold herself accountable to breaking the habit of fast fashion.
Through the discovery of personal style, AK equips her community with the confidence to shop their closets first, then prowl the aisles of a thrift store to pull together a particular look, rather than head to the mall or shop online with fast fashion brands.
AWKWARD THINGS APPAREL
Recycled and Biodegradable Streetwear
that Gives a Sh*t
NO NEW MATERIALS
No new or single use materials — ever. It's a big promise to make and an even harder one to live up to, but we mean it. We source only recycled or repurposed materials, ensuring that the waste we've already created gets used again and again.
recycled or biodegradable
We pledge to only sell products made from recycled materials or that are completely home biodegradable by design.
Our planet is already full of trash — why not wear it?
Spreading the word about secondhand shopping is one way that we'll fight the habit of fast fashion. Showing others how easy it is to look good while helping the planet is crucial!
I see that thrift shopping is also a kismet, serendipitous act, knowing that a piece you’re yearning for is out there waiting for you. It teaches us patience and gratitude.
