Recycling of clothes is nothing new. The second-hand clothing and vintage clothing industries have shown huge growth in the last few years, but what is really on the rise is the refashioning of second hand and vintage clothing. To know more about us, you can check out our website.
Whilst many love second hand and vintage clothing just as they are, refashioning them into new pieces has the benefits of creating completely unique, designer and cutting edge.
The great thing about recycled and refashioned clothing is the way that old clothes, styles, and fabrics inspire the designers to create something gorgeous and new. The new designs keep a bit of the history of the clothing from which they were made but also give consumers something fresh and exciting.
The labels blazing a trail in the field of refashioned and restyled clothes include Junky Styling, which started by deconstructing traditional suits from charity shops and jumble sales and reconstructed them to form twisted tailored pieces.
There are so many different companies designers finding great ways to recycle clothes and accessories including turning old saris into sandals and leather jackets into handbags.
DIY restyling and refashioning of clothes have also become hugely popular from dying old prom dresses and wedding dresses, to changing shirts into dresses and jeans into skirts. There are a number of online communities dedicated to restyling and refashioning of clothes.
