"The focus of my BA collection was to find a contemporary application of the practice of upcycling fabric waste and already existing garments. The resulting capsule collection targets the luxury market, appealing to the customers expectation of high-end finishes and seasonless design.
The research conducted was focused on finding modern approaches to historic examples of upcycling such as early quilting/ patchworking traditions, visible mending etc. as well as utilitarian clothes, that are made to last. All designs developed from these techniques were focused on longevity of design and value of craft.
The development and photographed outfit seen below is an excerpt of the capsule wardrobe. "
