As part of Fashion Revolution week 2019, The Waste Free Fashion Collective showcased their latest collections using waste material entirely. The group is comprised of myself, Gloria Jane Royer, Erin Hayhow, Robert George Saunders and Dream Safari all sharing sustainable mindsets in our practice. The performance took place at Turner Contemporary in Margate, pairing with Future Foundry for the event, it was a huge success in making people reconsider the clothes they wear, and in particular who made your clothes?
For my pieces I have salvaged old sailing gear, donated from Herne Bay Sailing Club, local to my hometown of Kent. I have used a variety of materials ranging from sails, wetsuits, spinnakers and rash vests, giving them a new life and reimagining them through fashion.
