A friend of mine made a suggestion yesterday. To coincide with the collection I am producing this year out of entirely recycled materials, I am going to participate in a sub-project.
Starting from now, for the rest of the year, I am not going to purchase a single piece of new fashion or textiles. Every item of clothing and piece of fabric i acquire will be pre-loved.
Considering a lot of my wardrobe is already made up from recycled clothes or pieces made by me, this shouldn't be too daunting. It's the new fabric that will get me...
But actions speak louder than words, so if I want to do my part of thinking global, acting local this is it.
