“The design processes of upcycling can make us update the world of fashion in small and beautiful steps, upfashioning it with our own craftsmanship.” Otto von Busch
There is a liberating feeling to be experienced when you hack into clothes that were once considered fashionable. You are the REdesigner [the hacker] not accepting societies informal rules and expectations around how unwanted clothes are to be treated.
My Scavenger Style statement is a guerrilla garment tactical response strategy to fast fashion’s wasteful ways. And my upcycling colleague Jane Milburn from Brisbane, Australia is also embracing Hacktivism in her year long project, where she creates an upcycled outfit each day. She has written about my political fashion statement and Otto von Busch’s Hacktivism movement at Textile Beat
