In essence, Remake it: Clothes is much more than just a narrative or how-to. It’s an imaginative retelling of what is in your closet.

Synopsis

An antidote to fashion wastefulness: an inspirational and practical reference to help you design your own clothes and accessories

An encyclopedia of life skills, smart ideas, and great design, Remake It: Clothes blends inspiration, entertainment, and hands-on advice in equal measure. It incorporates a wealth of almost-forgotten skills, step-bystep projects to create new clothes from old, and accessories from found materials—plus examples from celebrated international designers —to show what can be created with a “Remake It” philosophy. There are introductory essays on the history and context of recycling clothes in the fashion industry, as well as tips on vintage clothing, storage, and caring for your clothes. Featuring more than 500 illustrations—250 of which have been specially commissioned—the book draws together global trends, traditional practices, and modern innovations to make a harmonious, life-enriching guide. 500+ illustrations in color and black and white
