Everyone adores originality and sustainability! Brooklyn Karasack, a TikTok artist, recently saw a significant increase in traffic to her profile and to this video.

In her popular series, “Thrift Flip,” Brooklyn showcases goods from her Goodwill collection and then cuts in midsentence to reveal how she altered them. The video has had 1.5 million views so far.

Here’s a before — a maxi dress:

Although Brooklyn began her career creating clothes for herself to attend music festivals, it isn’t all she does. She and her friend Mariah Allen have developed a lucrative company turning unique thrift discoveries and sewing at home, and I’m absolutely infatuated with every single piece.

“There are a lot of positives to upcycling and flipping clothes instead of just outright making clothes,” Brooklyn told Ozi Fox.

“We started outsourcing from thrift stores because it’s a much more affordable option than purchasing fabric.” Reviving an item of clothing that will likely never be worn again is an exhilarating experience. Contrary to modern rapid fashion trends, it prevents the garments from ending up in landfills.”

“92 million tons of clothes end up in landfills every year,” Brooklyn claims. “The two of us sourcing from a thrift store won’t make a big dent in that number, but every little bit does help and hopefully we can inspire other people to do the same.”
Brooklyn claims that being popular on TikTok has been enjoyable, and it appears that she has encouraged others to begin creating their own clothing. “It makes me SO happy that some people have approached me in person and told me how much I inspire them and how much they learn from my tutorials,” the woman adds. I genuinely like creating instructions so that anyone who wants to try sewing may do so.”

Brooklyn’s page is full of ideas for designs and even simply style, whether folks are into making their own outfits, discovering things from tiny producers, or even just thrifting more frequently. It’s not only environmentally friendly, but it’s also a fantastic opportunity to express your unique sense of style. I mean, this isn’t something you buy in a shop.
