Remaking Fashion
Lorelie Smit
Medium: textiles
I pay homage to the many hands, behind the scenes, involved in creating a contemporary item of fashion. Unfortunately, in our current market, clothing is produced rapidly and cheaply, lessening the value of the makers' work. The piece consists of five recycled silk garments, vintage buttons and threads with hand and machine stitching. Natural dyeing using avocado produced the finished colours.
