Pre-Loved Podcast: Dani of Picnicwear
Today we’re speaking with Dani of Picnicwear! Picnicwear is an upcycled fashion brand that lives by the motto “future vintage over future garbage!”
On this episode we talk about Dani’s lifelong love of vintage, designing for large retailers, and coming to the realization of the industry’s overproduction and disposability, which lead Dani to pursue her own fashion adventure in Picnicwear. If you’re a small business owner or an upcycler, you’ve gotta listen to this one -- we talk so much, including deadstock, the slow fashion space, and making the jump to entrepreneurship.
I’m really excited for you to hear Dani’s story today, so let’s dive right in!
