When Magdalena Silva left her position as a system-integration engineer at IBM five years ago, she was looking to fall in love with her next adventure. She found just that in Fashion Reloved. Silva’s passion for couture and commitment to sustainability spawned the Austin-based luxury-fashion consignment business, which helps the world recycle high-end goods. Silva finds joy in helping clients declutter their closets because in doing so, she is making unique fashion pieces accessible to others while promoting eco-friendly habits. Furthermore, her engineering skills came into play when building her website, through which she sells her consigned pieces.
