Sometimes people see sustainability as difficultBut with this collection I want to show how to use sustainable ways of creating fashion to make truly unique and more beautiful items than are possible in conventional ways." - Luca Kemkes"
From the 29th of Feb til the 12th of March we have a new exhibition on display at Fashion for Good - a showcase of streetwear pieces from Luca Kemkes' 'A Bed Collection' - made entirely out of repurposed bedding.
Having worked previously as a menswear designer at Calvin Klein, Kemkes' own streetwear collection makes use of bedding sourced from secondhand shops and online marketplaces. The design process is led by the variety of textures and details in each piece of material – showcasing intricate pattern making and patchwork techniques in creating a unique garment from every bit of fabric.
The exhibition entry is free of charge, but cash donations are appreciated to support our museum!
