I am very excited to present TRAID Remade’s Super Spring Summer collection 2013! The windows and wall are up in the Dalston store now! So do come see!
106 -108 Kingsland Road
London E8 2NS
I love the stories behind all the vintage clothes that TRAID sell and have long been a fan of their stores both in London and when they had a store in Brighton, which is where I went to University.
Clare Farrell’s latest collection ‘REMADE’ is as you’d expect all made from recycled clothes.
Clare tie dyes, dip dyes, cuts and customises clothes which are no longer wanted and brings them back to life. I’m loving her mix and match Leggings and Bum bags! It was amazing working with Clare, her energy shines into the clothes she makes.
Do check out Clare’s summer delights in store, and soon online and on Supermarket Sarah.com
BIG THANKS to team TR who were so open and fun to work with!
Fashion Designer herself Claire Farrell,
TRAID TEAM: Leigh McAlea, Lyla Patel Reynolds,

all whom made my cling filmed card board box wall dream extravaganza a reality!

Thank you LCC for a super Green Week 2013! I was invited back this year to create a wall for TRAID at London College of Communication.
TRAID wanted to show the process of how their clothes start from unwanted items, get sorted in sorting depots and are then up cycled by their designers and sold in their stores for added value, helping to reduce landfill and develop sustainable livelihoods all over the world.
I interpreted this as TRAID MAKE UNHAPPY CLOTHES HAPPY!
so Sophie Abboud, a student from London College of Fashion helped me create a WONDER WALL of clothes which started sad and limp and then gradually became brightly coloured and dancing! we dotted the wall with some photos of the process and showed flying bird scissors swoop in to do the up-cycling to make sense of it all.
There was all sorts going on through out the day and Traid and Patrice John-Baptiste from Open Wardrobe had a great workshop going on customising clothes.

I love the colours and shapes of Japanese fashion. Kusama dots, Lolita punk, indigo denims … modern twists of capes and kimonos let you fly around the city. Extremes are really extremes and modernity rubs shoulders with the past in a wonderfully jarring way… here are some of my fashion highlights from Japan:
Flea market Japan:
The super talented Chisa and her splashed shoes by the Sky Tree near her studio
The beautiful Ai in her vintage jacket at the flea market!
The Hostess with the absolute mostest in Naka Meguro’s best kept secret restaurant. (All good restaurants are secrets in Japan behind hidden sliding door)
Seiko -vintage store owner in the super cool Daikanyama-cho district
Hiroyo button style
Hiroyo loves buttons and 45rpm which is great japanese fashion store!
