English – Upcycling: Sustainable fashion



“In nature nothing is created, nothing is lost, everything changes”, said Lavoisier more than 200 years ago. And transformation is precisely the whole point of the course Upcycling: the ideia is to show the possibilities of changing and creating new clothes using existing clothes as starting materials. The students will unsew, remodel and dye articles of clothes from past collections of FARM (the most carioca brand ever!), our partner. Have you ever thought about how many meters of perfectebly usable fabric are wasted because of simple mistakes or just because they’re not in anymore? Upcycling, a trend at the fashion world whose promess is to make more and more success, besides enabling the creation of exclusive itens, is also an eco-friendly way to make new clothes.
