The Estethica Veolia Re-Source Competition in collaboration with Central Saint Martins
As part of a new series of Incubator Projects developed in collaboration with British Fashion Council’s Estethica, Veolia Environmental Services and Central Saint Martins, Reclaim To Wear is proud to announce the launch of Liora Lassalle’s first collection.
Liora, a CSM BA graduate, has produced an upcycled capsule collection entirely developed at the Reclaim To Wear Studio in London, supported by a mentoring program focused on sourcing, development, production and marketing.
Liora received mentoring from Reclaim to Wear founders Orsola de Castro and Filippo Ricci, Willie Walters (BA Course Director at CSM), Anna Orsini (Strategic Consultant at BFC) and Sumarie Fashion House.
The collection was made reclaiming high-end textile waste such as vintage lace and fine jerseys and upcycling old high-vis jackets from Veolia Environmental Services employees and will be presented at Estethica this February 2013.
Liora has also secured her first online stockist at YOOXYGEN, yoox.com’s eco-friendly initiative, and has designed a collection of jeans created from reclaimed denim donated by leading Italian manufacturer Pier, from the denim brand (+) People.
