The Knee-length overshirt is tailored with fabrics collected through swap markets hosted by Empty Your Wardrobe & Kolding Green Streets Saturday Market in Denmark. Additional waste fabrics have been collected from our partner Beirholm, where we together agreed to extend the life cycle of those fabrics – thrown away and considered as not valuable. These are materials, pieces that they use for quality testing and after the manipulation could not find another purpose.
Using her imagination, Dahlia transformed these discarded pieces into a beautiful long overshirt wearable in many different ways: as a jacket, dress, overshirt.
The overshirt is made of different fabrics, naturally dyed by Marta in rose tones, and combined in the pockets, cuffs, lining, in order to maximise the use of scraps and small fabrics sourced by Svetlana. Marta decided to dye this discarded fabric obtained by Svetlana with bay leaves collected from her mum’s bay tree to create a subtle blush tone.
Such a light and delicate color for a very wearable garment!
