I've become a fan of the blogs of the re-fashionistas and trashinistas. Check out the work of the talented members of Wardrobe Refashion and designers like Outi Piyy–I loved her Zipper Collar Trashion Gala Dress.
The My Recycled Bags site has free patterns and more ideas for creative re-use and recycling.
While the disposable/fast fashion industry continues to expand (see Is disposable fashion killing the planet?) these creative women are refashioning thrifted garments and creating fashion from trash . . . and walking a little more gently on the planet.
They inspire me to re-use more and consume less.
