Sustainable design is my medium to promote love and compassion for our planet while honing my passion in fashion design. Fashion and sustainability should not be mutually exclusive, but mutually beneficial to create a better world for future generations. My desire is to break the stereotypes of sustainable clothing and prove that it can be mainstream and also luxurious for everyone, everywhere. - Lina Mayorga
