Sustainability Project - For this project we were requested to design in a sustainable way, when all the materials and fabrics used for the clothes will not be bought with money, but upcycled or reconstructed from existing items no more used.
In order to find an inspiration for this project, I looked for a muse – someone that his way of life is influenced by sustainability and ecology, keeps the environment clean and who always finds a way to turn "garbage" to Treasures" , and I immediately understood that my father is the one who will inspire my project.
My father's typical look is a buttoned checked shirt, which is like his second skin. You will never find him without it.
I gathered leftover checked fabrics from any place I could and combined them all together, while my purpose was to have minimum waste of fabric. I also used the technic of reconstruction using two existing items transformed to a new garment.
