Atelier Gaëlle Constantini: fair clothes made from upcycling
The Atelier Gaëlle Constantini is a brand of feminine and eco-responsible ready-to-wear clothing, made in France and created in 2010. Its creator, Gaëlle Constantini, wished to combine her passion for fashion and her strong interest for fair trade and the protection of the environment. To make her unique and trendy pieces, she uses as raw materials worn textiles, found in flea markets or in thrift shops. Thus, the brand puts forward the concept of upcycling, an increasingly popular technique which consists in transforming unused materials and giving them a second life. The models come in diverse colours and in sizes ranging from 34 to 42, such as the Top Jane, a charming small top lined in sheath, available in several shades (beige, white, green, blue, black and pink) and which can also be worn as a skirt! Gaëlle Constantini works in close collaboration with occupational integration workshops specialized in sewing, like Femmes Actives, Emmaüs France or Concept Insertion. A beautiful initiative applauded by the Green Hotels Paris, the Eiffel Trocadéro and the Gavarni.
Atelier Gaëlle Constantini pieces are sold on the website of the brand.
