Lecture:  Upcycle Magic

The act of transforming existing clothing into new creations is as old as clothing itself.  How is this practice relevant in a day and age of fashion overabundance?  What is possible?  Paralleling the fast/food – slow/food movement is a fast/fashion – slow/fashion movement.  The creativity and artistic expression available in upcycling will both inspire you and leave you with a whole new perspective.
