After Beloved Grandma Dies, Fashion Student Turns Her Vintage Wardrobe Into Clothes She Can Wear


Ellie Rose is a fashion student who specializes in making her own sustainable clothing. She lives in Brighton, UK, but her recent project has caught the attention of fashion lovers around the world.

Ellie was devastated when her beloved grandmother passed away in 2019.

She told Newsflare: “She was my best friend. I was broken when she was taken from us. One of our favorite things to do together was shop. She had four wardrobes full of clothes, some of them years old.”

She added, “Every time I would take her for lunch, she would strut downstairs in her outfit that she had styled and asked me if I approve. She was the best-dressed nan I ever saw.”

After her passing, Ellie imagined all of her grandmother’s beautiful clothes piled up and tossed away, never to be worn or appreciated ever again. Because she’s passionate about sustainability, she realized her nan’s closet was full of creative potential.

So, the talented fashion student set out to repurpose her grandma’s entire wardrobe so they fit her perfectly.

She completely redesigned some pieces for an updated style (like when she transformed a full-length skirt into a mini dress), while others were lightly tailored.

“I get to keep her with me all the time now. There’s no better feeling.”
