Designing with a repurpose


For my first collection in college I didn’t have a whole lot of money to spend on fabulous fabrics and trim. So being inspired by tea parties and my grandmothers linens, I got resourceful and I re-purposed vintage materials gifted to me as well as crystals from a chandelier from my dad and lace doilies from my grandmother linen closet. I didn’t end up having to buy a lot of new material but what I did buy I did my own fabric treatments with bleach and tea to stain and alter the fabric to look more vintage.
