Repurposing clothing is a great way to update your wardrobe, save money, and protect the environment. If you have your doubts, check out these works of art, made from old clothing (and in one case, newspapers!) by Gary Harvey. (All images are from the Gary Harvey Collection.)
Harvey says: “Jeans are one of the most hardwearing garments, originally designed as a work uniform, and made in a fabric designed to last years. Since the transition from ‘work-to-wear’ fashion, jeans are often discarded for the latest silhouette before the end of their useful life.”
Now, we’re not suggesting that these are garments you could or should wear on the average day but it just goes to show that you can repurpose anything into something fun and fashionable if you are creative enough!
