Wow! Really love this item. Every bit as lovely as I had hoped it would be judging from the photo and my previous purchases. Darryl has a very creative eye and a great talent for re-purposing items. Thank you, I will enjoy wearing my new top.

About

ReFashion ReUse - RePurpose - ReMade

From my Punk roots as a teenager to the present day Eco Rebel I have always been interested in modifying materials to hand to recreate & innovate.Following several years of working for magazines such as ID ,The Face & Blitz during the 80's(where I was frequently asked to modify and repurpose pieces for photo shoots), styling music videos and advertising I have been designing and producing unique handcrafted, deconstructed and Upcycled Clothing since the early 90’s when I had stalls at Portobello and Spitalfields street markets in London
My Purpose and Passion now is to creating high quality Unique Upcycled Clothing…..to dream up a Second life for Old Threads, crafting Feisty Festival Finery, Stunning Show stoppers & Wild Wooly Wonders that will have wearers stopped in the street
I create One of a kind pieces of patchworked and appliquéd knitwear and accessories form recycled /upcycled materials, silk dresses and tops from Vintage silk scarves and other garments from whatever else I find to deconstruct and give a new lease of life to……
New resources to be used this winter include vividly patterned vintage blankets from Holland and pastel checkered from Wales….

Welcome to my shop!
I strive to create high quality, unique and individual pieces of handmade clothing. I would never sell anything I wouldn't wear myself, so buy with confidence.
Every item is carefully handcrafted by me to be enjoyed for years to come.All items are made from recycled and other "found" materials, so it is eco friendly clothing that is kind to the earth.

As an independent designer, I spend many hours making each piece – from personally hunting through charity shops,carboots and markets and other sources for the best cashmere, wool and vintage fabrics, to designing, cutting, sewing and finishing. Every dress, sweater, coat and accessory is either one of a kind or one of a very limited edition.All my pieces are eco friendly - upcycled or vintage.

*** Please note - Upcycled silk clothing must be hand washed cold water for lasting beauty!
-Upcycled knitwear should be handwashed in cool/warm water and dried naturally.

A note on textiles:
Vintage materials are old, which means they are sometimes worn, sometimes have tiny holes, sometimes imperfect in little ways. I fix or work round what I can, and if it doesn't detract from the coolness I use the fabric anyway. I forgive the little imperfections because it allows me to make beautiful creations out of materials that are environmentally friendly.
It is cool because it's vintage.
But it is also old and imperfect because it is vintage.
It is impossible to separate the two.
If you have questions about the "perfectness" of what you're buying, ask me before you buy.I will do everything I can to assure that you are happy with your purchases.
