FROW at Stella McCartney Winter 2019, Paris
Guess who featured supercycled clothes in their Winter 2019 Paris Fashion Week show? Ms Stella McCartney. Sustainable supercycling is officially ON. THE. MAP!
Stella McCartney was already my sustainable fashion hero but her Winter 2019 show at Paris Fashion Week took my love to stratospheric new levels. The holy fashion grail is high style infused with cool sustainability and this collection ticked every single box.
But you know what made me want to do star jumps?
There on the runway, in amongst these incredible new clothes, were supercycled outfits! Old t-shirts stripped, knotted and knitted into a dress, discarded pieces of waxed fabric turned into a military coat, vintage fabrics re-worked into monochromatic dresses and jackets. A fantastic display of incredible style created out of clothes and materials that had been lying dormant. Converting at it’s very best or, as Stella says, ‘conscious couture.’ Check out my photos as the models swished past!
So if the Queen of Sustainability puts supercycling on the runway, it’s definitely time for us all to unleash our inner designers, get supercycling and walk our very own catwalks! Check out my How To… guides and videos on YouTube for inspiration.
