Local girl Moani Silva always wanted to have her own clothing line. Well, three years ago that dream came true when she started Recycled Sweetheart, offering eco-friendly fashions handmade from recycled fabric.
“The style is laid-back, comfy and sexy,” says Silva, a 2000 graduate of Kamehameha Schools. “I try to stick with old, unique, vintage looks, such as old muumuus from grandma’s closet or shirts from grandpa’s closet.”
Silva, 26, says growing up she never liked shopping and would make her own clothes. She learned to sew on her own, but would later attend the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising in San Francisco.
