which involved taking expensive designer sweaters, like these:
And turning them into this:
The sweaters were originally sold for upward of $1,300.
Here’s the catch: The sweaters are all from last season (Fall/Winter ‘13).
The piece is aptly named “Last Season”
“By slowly deconstructing these expensive knitwear sweaters from last season to their base we created one more moment of glory. Symbols of hope.”
and the result…
'The Empty Shop’ is an amazing concept. Seeing the general public donate pre-loved clothes to fill up the Empty Shop. Fashion bloggers, Stylists and fashion faces will transform the store with show stopping looks made from the donations. Every evening the store is emptied and the clothes go onto help those in need this winter. Then the next day, it starts over again!
The Empty Shop idea has already been hugely successful in Brazil where it was founded.
