As luck would have it, I get to peruse Tambi Lane Photography runway photos from last year’s Rubbish Renewed Eco Fashion Show. Thumbing through the images immediately brought me back to the green room on the evening of January 15th. . . Examining the garments up close illuminates the quality of construction and the intricacy of work (manifested in many hours) that goes into manipulating rubbish into fashion. Textures and tricky techniques abound. Our goal is to continue to push designers in material choices (see post Organic Matter isn’t Rubbish), uniqueness of design and quality construction.
