I am orginally from Copenhagen, Denmark and I am a 2021 graduate from the Swedish School of Textiles specializing in zero-waste designing.
The traditional recycling practise of “destroying” is inevitable in order to create something new.
Most of my designs are made with a new zero-waste recycling and garment re-construction method without the use of a scissor.
The methods applied investigate usage and how to create new form, while allowing a reconstructed garment to be reversed back to its original state.
The aim is that the garments are to keep it’s original value, and thus making its sustainable potential higher. Significantly, the project discusses how our
pre-existing visual perception of unwanted 2hand garments can be expanded, when they are reconstructed and recycled (unharmed)
