For our current brief for university, we have been asked to create a 16 page magazine on a specific topic – I chose distressed denim. During my research for this I discovered an amazing young designer who’s work is right on par with my topic, Faustine Steinmetz. Her work includes old denim pieces which have then pleated, shredded, knotted, bleached and distressed to create gorgeous new unique pieces.
I feel her outlook on fashion is very fresh and I feel larger designers should be inspired by her to make their own garments environmentally friends and sustainable. The Parisian designer has since expanded her line to use polo shirts and worn tracksuits and also created a vegan handbag line.
