Photographer: Veli-Matti Hoikka
We had a project with Kontti recycling center which is run by the Red Cross. We got to use old clothing to make new outfits out of them. So this is completely made of recycled materials.
I used some old trench coats that I pretty much put apart so there isn't much left of the original construction.
This was a great learning process since I had never really done a whole outfit before. But using recycled materials was real fun.
And we got this photoshoot which was amazing! To finally see my clothes on the model, a dream come true.
There will propably be posters printed out of this and displayed in Konttis around Finland. Working with the model, the photographer and the stylist was really interesting and sometimes challenging but I love the end results. I didn't think I would be able to do anything like this.
