The aim of this project was to design a capsule collection made entirely from garments that would have gone to landfill.

The collection is designed with pattern pieces and instructions to ensure they can easily be developed from discarded clothing to avoid them going to landfill.

To ensure they do not loose their aesthetic value it is important that the garments do not conform to fast fashion trends.

Instead, it will follow the principals of slow fashion- the idea that fashion should be environmentally friendly, ethical and longer lasting.
