Flowers, sawdust, leaves and even seeds. Change of Plans The businesswoman tells that she has a degree in Fashion Management. A few years ago, he decided to venture out of the country, taking courses to update his curriculum. It was in London that she had the opportunity to take a course on the impacts of artificial paints on the environment, and decided to put her chips on it.
