Re Fashion Edinburgh 2023
Re Fashion Edinburgh is a sustainable fashion event that I started in 2022 , and hope to make an annual event . Along with 9 other designers , A full team of models and supporting expert hairdressers , make up artists and technical team we show our designs and raise a bit money for charity .
This year we are raising funds for Green Hive Nairn , an environmental and social enterprise on the north coast of Scotland .
As Re Fashion Edinburgh is about sustainable fashion , the designers are asked to create bew garments using only Recycled, upcycled and vintage remnants of cloth. Remaking old into new , saving things from landfill as well as giving them a new lease of life.
In doing so , we hope to both encourage designers to work in new ways that are less harmful to the planet at the same time as creating an interest in alternatives to fast fashion for the viewer.
Everyone at ReFashion Edinburgh gives their time freely to support this important message , and the show is becoming the coolest fashion event in town .
My collection this year is in three parts
Part 1 , is called 'La vie en rose ' , and consists of art deco inspired evening wear made entirely from antique silk which is exquisite and delicate , giving the dresses themselves a vintage look and feel .
Part 2, ' White wedding 'is a collection of evening wear inspired by designer Paul Poiret, and made entirely from pre worn wedding dresses , which have been deconstructed, dyed , and remade into unique beautiful new garments , to be worn again on some ones special occasion .
Part 3 ' Vengefully changing allegiance ' is a mash up of Scottish/ punk / victorian / renegade couture made entirely from curtains .
I hope you enjoy / have enjoyed the show , there will be loads of pictures on social media coming up. As well as a film ! To see the collection in more detail on this website please go to shop here/ ReFashion Edinburgh please use the hashtag #ReFashionEdinburgh on your social media 😊
