Their vision: giving students in the Richland community a creative outlet through the world of fashion as well as a chance to make new friends and memories.

Speaking about club activities, “I like to think first and foremost [about] stuff that’s easy for people, and I like to make it as sustainable as possible, which is why we’re using clothes from our own closet and from the student pantry which are donations, so that was the idea for bleaching and for future events”, Scott said.
