Skills of resourcefulness
Creative activists contribute greatly to society through innovation and experiment, taking on projects that fail to hit the radar of conventional industry. Their work is a training ground for new practices, for trialling novel approaches and reviving old skills that promote alternative ideas about fashion provision and consumption.
Cover and fit
"I crocheted and I designed the pattern for the boot covers… I have really large feet and I get embarrassed by them, so some shoes make them look even larger, so I just wear them over top, so they kind of help "de-accentuate" my feet. (laughs). I make most of my sweaters and hoodies [as] my arms are really long… now the recording will make me sound like I am really weird (laughs) - so I just make my own things. I just make things so they fit properly."
