Beauty & Ruin Magazine – Brighton Fashion Week October 2015

Brighton Fashion Week 2015, now 10 years old, was most notable this year for it’s endorsement of a movement yet to fully take off in the UK, ‘sustainable fashion’. So vehement was their determination to promote the ideology of the cause it encompassed the theme throughout the entire week. Liz Bishop, founder of the event, invited guest speakers to talk about the state of the fashion industry and what we as individuals can do to play our part moving forward. [read more]

Re-Cycle-Style @ BAFW 2015 – Ist das Kunst oder kann das weg?

Wer hätte gedacht, dass Müll so elegant sein kann?! Re-Cycle-Style auf der Berlin Alternative Fashion Week 2015 zaubert, wie der Name schon sagt, aus alten Materialien neue Kleidungsstücke. Und die entlocken einem auf jeden Fall das ein oder andere ‚Oh’ und ‚Ah’. Als das dimmende Licht die nächste Show ankündigt, erklingen melodische Töne. Das erste Model tänzelt elfengleich über den Laufsteg und beamt das Publikum wie in eine andere Welt – vielleicht eine nachhaltigere. Denn genau das ist bei Re-Cycle-Style kaum zu verkennen – die Nachhaltigkeit steht im Vordergrund. [read more]

Bedeutet: Jedermann ist willkommen und hat die Möglichkeit, neue Designer, Künstler und Gleichgesinnte kennenzulernen. Zu entdecken gibt es Stylings, die allesamt eine umweltfreundliche Materialverarbeitung als Hintergrund haben. [read more]

Archie and the Rug: Paper Roses – guest post
