The R Collective is a clothing brand using some of the industry’s highest quality materials, but with a difference: it rescues excess materials from world-leading luxury designers, and upcycles them to create something entirely new.
British entrepreneur Christina Dean founded the company in 2017, inspired by a charity she founded in 2007 called Redress, which works to reduce fashion waste and promote a circular fashion industry.
With 12 years of experience in tackling the industry’s waste problem and driven by the urgent environmental crisis caused by fashion, Dean didn’t want to just “start a fashion brand”.
