Have you ever wondered what happens at the end of the life of a billboard? Honestly, I did not until I heard of the company, Rareform. I have always been interested and intrigued by the challenge of recreating things into something new. Sustainability is a HUGE driving force in my life in many aspects. I see sustainability in fashion as a way to intrigue others. Those that have seen this jacket asked many questions, most commonly, “what is it?”
It seemed crazy, and after my first sample. I also thought I was crazy. However, with perseverance and changing my pattern I began to realize what will work and what will not with the material that I was given. (Thank you to Alec from Rareform for all the help!) The final project is intriguing, interesting, and sustainable!
The first attempt can be seen below.
