This collection speaks about limited time and waste materials. We use many resources from our planet and never return back. As a result, we can end up in a gloomy situation being left with all our waste and no genuine fibers left. However, beauty is in all products of our universe. This collection explores this beauty in recycled plastic bags, scrap wood and found objects to reveal it to the wearer.
