An encyclopaedia of life skills, smart ideas and great design, Remake It: Clothes blends inspiration, entertainment and hands-on ‘know how’ in equal measure, producing a wealth of almost-forgotten ‘word-of-mouth’ skills, step-by-step projects to create new clothes from old and accessories from found materials, plus design examples from celebrated international designers, to show what can be created with a ‘Remake It’ philosophy. With over 500 illustrations, 250 of which have been specially commissioned for the book, and featuring introductory essays on the history and context of recycling clothes in the fashion industry, as well as tips on vintage clothing, storage and caring for your clothes, Remake It: Clothes draws together global trends, traditional practices and modern innovations into a harmonious and life-enriching guide.
