Fashion Rocks : Upstyled Fashion
Sustainable Style

Fashion Rocks is a sustainable style initiative that focuses on conservation not consumerism.

 Fashion Rocks?

A rock is a gem in its purest form.  The notion of a rock embodies a return to simpler , slower times.

That said, we believe in slow fashion.

Supporting local, small craftsman, Artisan Produced, Limited Edition and Custom Made.

Why Custom Made: “because it eliminates waste and over consumption that clogs landfills and sales racks.
