02/20/2011 Interconnected Web of Upcyclers!

I’m currently teaching (& learning from) my 2nd “Redesign Your Wardrobe” Workshop which is divided into 3 sessions.  One of the assignments is for each participant to research 4 upcyclers and share their methods with the class.

I was extremely delighted when photos from Supayana’s gorgeously vintage upcycled collection was one of our “discovered & forever uncovered” designers!  This brought an extra smile to my face as Yana and I became friends at the Paris Ethical Fashion Show in 2009.  Russian born via Brooklyn now residing in Montreal, she is a pioneer of successfully producing upcycled pieces.  Visit her site at  http://www.supayana.com/
