Upcycled clothing made from mainly recycled materials.
I've always made clothes. It started in the 70's with Punk clothing for myself and has carried on ever since. Even when I was on the road travelling in buses, trucks and trailers I managed to do some sewing. But I never had enough space, so I moved into bricks and mortar, for the first time in 30 years in order to start my business.After 3 years living in town, Tailortrash is established, so my daughter and I have moved off-grid again, into a little cabin in the Welsh hills.
The environment has always been important to me, so upcycling was a natural progression. I source my materials from charity shops, mostly, so am making a contribution to a number of charities in the course of my business, as well as recycling unwanted clothes & fabrics which could otherwise end up as waste. My clothes are generally quite loose and/or stretchy in an attempt to do away with the tyranny of traditional clothing sizes, after all how many people are a standard size?
I love deconstructing clothes and reconstructing them into something totally different from what they were! I don't use patterns, it's an instinctive process, starting with one garment as a basis, usually, then adding parts of other garments as I go.
At the moment I'm really into linen and stretchy jersey fabrics, so I'm scouring my local charity/thrift shops for these!
My clothes suit women of all ages and sizes, they are playful, sculptural and sometimes just plain silly!! Who wants to wear boring, off -the-peg clothes when you can have something totally original that makes you feel good and is handmade and eco-friendly to boot
