Saving the environment is not just about finding rare and exotic eco-friendly materials. In fact, sometimes it can be as simple as extending the life of the clothing already in our closets. Candice Held Designs, based in Los Angeles, epitomizes the upcycling chic movement in the eco-world. Her ready to wear vintage scarf dresses are both chic and resourceful. She mixes beautiful vintage scarf patterns and colors to create one of a kind statement pieces. Candice’s dresses have inspired us at LuxEco Living to think outside the box when it comes to sourcing eco-conscious materials.

Candice Held, now a local Angeleno fashion designer, studied first as a professional dancer. Her love for dance helped her to appreciate the female form, and her designs illustrate her knowledge of highlighting the elegant curves of a woman’s body. These skills coupled with her love for repurposing thrift store finds guided her to study fashion design at the New York Fashion Academy in her hometown of Seattle, Washington.
