MANAGING PARTNER

Treehouse Trading Post
Los Angeles, CA  February 2019 – PRESENT

Deep passion and dedication to sustainable fashion, trying to shift current shopping trends away from wasteful fast-fashion to a more circular, responsible, no-waste fashion culture. We upcycle, recycle, redistribute, and resell everything from vintage to current street trends, timeless, genderless, ageless classics, festival finds and more, trying to keep clothing out of the landfills by repairing, reinvesting in, and ultimately reselling clothing we can give another life. Along with a mix of music, art, books, and whatever other pieces that find their way to us, from Hollywood to Bollywood, our store is collection of culture, the community that contributes, carefully crafted second-hand clothing. From all clothing donated to us and sold, we donate part of our proceeds to children programs and community workshops teaching people the skills necessary to mend their own relationship with fashion.
