Everything produced by 'Make do Make better' is recycled from the best quality second hand clothing, deconstructed, re-cut and completely transformed into a new product that belies the former identity of, or revamps the original garment.


All garments are made locally from either recycled, fair trade, organic or ethically produced materials.


Creating a unique fashion trend, timeless, original designs with the individual as the focus 'Make do Make better' ensure no two garments are the same – they can be cut from the same original or pattern but the raw materials will always be different.

Creating a unique fashion trend creating timeless original designs and offering a bespoke service to customers.
