Deconstruction Reconstruction Using A Jacket And Shirt

This is so enjoyable process - picking up the pieces of a jacket and shirt and then trying to make a garment without any cutting! Just a bit draping or making the wrinkles, pinning the parts together 'doing the surgery'. I came out with few ideas but my last one is the skirt which I made using the front sides of the jacket and pulling the pockets outside.

Junky Styling

Annika Sanders and Kerry Seager found it in 1997 inspired by the prevalence of re-cycling in places such as San Francisco and Tokyo. The main idea was to create unique garments that no two garments are ever the same. They use the highest quality of second-hand shop clothes or simply their customers bring their own clothes and the designers do the 'surgery'. Their garments has became the couture.

One more fashion designer Gary Harvey who used re-cycling to make fabulous clothes collections. His designs mainly consist from the same kind of clothe connecting them into one garment. For example he used a lot of jeans to make a dress not mixing any other kind like a jacket or a skirt.
