When Laura from Named Clothing agreed to be part of this year’s line up I was so chuffed. I love their aesthetic and was excited to see what their take on this challenge would be. When I saw this pop into my inbox I knew I’d played a blinder asking Laura to take part!
The dress is based on the Agate from their stunning new FW 17 Earth Science collection of patterns…
The lines of the pattern lend themselves really well to refashioning anyway (being long and narrow) but Laura had even more of a play with them resulting in some striking stripe play…
Really loving diagonal seams front and back and the zip detail at the side seam. I love that you can almost see the original trouser leg in that front panel. But if you didn’t know this was a refashion….could you tell?
Nailed that then Laura!
For more pics and details head over to Named Clothing’s blog !
Only me to go tomorrow, then we’re done and it’s over to you!!
If you fancy getting your refashion on, but are in two minds about whether to enter this year’s community challenge;
- Check out our pinterest board for inspiration
- Check out the amazing prize package (yes you could win all that!)
- Go grab a suit and dive in!
….If you haven’t familiarised yourself with what the actual challenge is yet, essentially we want you to refashion an old, unworn or unloved suit! Simple as that! What counts as a suit you say? Definition here!
Man’s suit. Ladies suit. Doesn’t matter. Interpret how you see fit. If you’re breathing new life into a suit that would otherwise go unworn or be thrown away, THAT’S what counts.
BUT, if you want to be in with a chance of winning one of these amazing prize packages you’ll need to SHARE that refashion with us in one of the following ways:
- On Instagram: Share a pic using the hashtags #therefashioners2017 and #suitsyou
- On Facebook: There is a community board here where you can post your makes (You will need to request an invite to join)
Only entries shared via the above 2 methods will be entered into the competition. Closing date for entries is 31st October 2017 Midnight GMT.
Good luck!!! Get refashioning.
Oh and by the way…The Refashioners is going on the road this November!! If you fancy attending our very first “in person” workshop in London on 4th November….full deets here!!
