You may have heard the saying the one man's trash is another man's treasure. One Spokane designer is using that phrase to make clothes out of reuseable materials.
Rachel Mace is only 22 but she's getting ready to show her designs in one of the biggest fashion events in the United States, New York's Fashion Week.
"Fashion Week is the biggest event in fashion in our continent," said Mace.
Fashion Week is known by designers and fashion enthusiasts everywhere as one of the "must attend" events. In fact big names such as Donna Karan and Chanel show their pieces at this event while stars like Kim Kardashian, Kanye West and Heidi Klum attend their shows.
Although Rachel didn't have any formal training as a designer like others that will be at the event, she said she got her start when someone recognized her talent.
"I went to the store and bought some garbage bags, but when I home and realized I already had some. So I made a skirt out of the new ones," said Mace.
It was that decision to use reusable materials that helped her get her start.
