Welcome to FashionRip
Restylers rip to sew, eco fashion designers use sustainable fabrics and processing, recycouture is one of a kind and usually involves hand or detail work. Recyked is anything renovated from something else.
Those who prefer vintage are fashion aware and appreciate the quality and the aesthetics of the past. The wearers of vintage have always had a stylish foot in sustainability. Thrift store and yard sale finds are great; however there really is such a thing as too much.
Anyone have other terms that they use in this sensibility? Please send them in with the definition so we can all get a nice working vocabulary. To own the language is to own the concepts and a way to maintain a viable structure that will facilitate growth. Its street up, savvy, sane and soon to be soaring as fast fashion falters by default.
Welcome and please let me know if you want to create collaborative crossings with links, pictures, tips and ideas.
