An international fashion research project exploring the 'craft of use'

Flexible Thinking

Wearing the same piece but with with a fluid attitude of openness and flexibility can find novelty in new places. The garment itself stays the same, but the rules and roles of wearing it are re-interpreted. Use is intensified; resources are saved; individuality is reclaimed.

Skirt shape

"I’m wearing a hot pink skirt that has lace on it and then a top that I got at a vintage store and it’s light green - it’s one of my favourite colours and I tied it together with the bow but I made it kind of a high rise for the skirt so that it comes together and looks like a dress … using the skirt to kind of cut the top off at a certain point."
