Time for a change. Back to art, back to handicraft, back to making fashion sustainable again.

FROM EVERYDAY OBJECT TO LUXURY
Second-hand clothes are the basis of Lili Uyen Thuy Pham's collection. She has wanted to use her background as a designer to shape and upcycle second-hand clothes, so they suddenly acquire a whole new value. Each garment in the final collection consists of fragments of clothes from the clothing store H&M combined with new materials. All items have been salvaged from thrift shops, and by adding the detailed craftsmanship of haute couture as draping and various kinds of print and embroidery, a surprising, novel and luxurious expression emerges.

FRA HVERDAGSOBJEKT TIL LUKSUS
Brugt tøj er basis i Lili Uyen Thuy Phams kollektion. Hun har ønsket at bruge sin baggrund som designer til at forme og upcycle genbrugstøj, så det pludselig får en helt ny værdi. Hver beklædningsdel i den endelige kollektion består af fragmenter af tøj fra H&M kombineret med nye materialer. Alt er fundet i genbrugsbutikker, og ved at tilføre haute couturens håndværksmæssige detaljer som drapering og forskellige former for print og broderi, opstår et uventet, nyt luksuriøst udtryk.
