Building a Capsule Wardrobe Collection
Did you know that the average woman only owned 36 items of clothing in 1930? Today, that number is 150.
Blake Smith, CEO of Cincinnati’s Cladwell, will discuss how cheap clothes hurt our wallets, the environment and the workers who make them. He’ll also offer a solution to today’s trend of Fast Fashion: building a capsule wardrobe. Cladwell believes that when you cut clutter, you make room for more important things. Things that don’t take up space in your dresser drawers. Things that really matter.
What is a tiny house? And what is the tiny house movement? Simply put, it is a social movement where people are choosing to downsize the space in which they live. While the typical American home is around 2,600 square feet, the typical small or tiny house is between 100 and 400 square feet. Tiny houses enable simpler living in a smaller, more efficient space.
Wheel Life Homes of Cold Spring will discuss the reasons people are joining the tiny house movement (environmental concerns, financial concerns, the desire for more time and freedom) and their experience as one of the first tiny home builders in Northern Kentucky/Cincinnati.
