Involved in fair trade and environmental care, she grounded WHAT’S IN A DRESS – a sustainable fashion brand. She designs and makes all the garments by herself here in Gran Canaria, using certified organic fabrics, mainly cotton. Moreover, each garment is made custom-size, which meas that if you want to buy any of the pieces which are on offer in Silvia’s online shop, you first need to use a special measurements guide available on the website and she will make the garment especially for you changing any detail you wish, so as to make it unique and more personal.

Además, cada prenda está hecha a medida, lo que significa, que si quieres comprar una de las prendas que están en oferta en la tienda online de Silvia, tienes que utilizar una guía de medidas que está disponible en la página web, y Silvia te hará una prenda especialmente para ti, cambiando cualquier detalle que te guste, para hacer la prenda única y más personal, una exclusividad.
