    1800 GallonsA photoshoot I did for 1800 Gallons, a sustainable denim brand created by Emily Tan, which uses deadstock material to repurpose materials and to combat the reported 1800 gallons of water it takes to create one pair of jeans. The photos have been used extensively to promote the brand, and featured across online platforms. Press: https://www.notjustalabel.com/1800-gallons

    I launched 1800 Gallons during London Fashion Week 2019.
