Lecture: Upcycle Magic
The act of transforming existing clothing into new creations is as old as clothing itself. How is this practice relevant in a day and age of fashion overabundance? What is possible? Paralleling the fast/food – slow/food movement is a fast/fashion – slow/fashion movement. The creativity and artistic expression available in upcycling will both inspire you and leave you with a whole new perspective.
