A billion tons of clothing end up in landfills yearly. Many designers from different fields of the fashion industry are focused on addressing this issue by making conscious choices and incorporating environmentally friendly practices into their brands.
In this practical and creative course, participants will learn the "second life movement" or how to create one-of-a-kind clothing garments that are sustainably made by giving life to old pieces.
With the use of preloved clothing, participants will learn design principles and easy-to-learn sewing techniques to make a unique piece of upcycled clothing. Participants will be guided and taught skills needed to design and create ideas based on deconstruction and reconstruction techniques. A talk on the significance of Upcycling and Sustainability will be given by Prince Jimdel Ventura, Spokesperson for Fashion Revolution Philippines. They will conclude the course with completed items of clothing as well as technical files of samples that they may use for future projects.
