More than I week ago I read about this interesting initiative on the Mr Price blog, called Rock Me Again. This upcycling project (the third of its kind) aims to use pre-worn clothing, to make new items with the help of local fashion designers.
You drop off your pre-loved clothes at your nearest participating Vida e Caffe and the designers will chose the items, they would like to work with, with the completed garments photographed and shown on Visi’s website.
How exiting! So I got four items out of my charity bag and headed over to Vida e Caffe in Greenside. I am holding thumbs that my garments will be chosen.
The ethos of the project is to , “use the national voice of the combined partners to encourage you to reduce the impact of the clothes that you loved to wear. In this way, you can help create a sustainable fashion-forward environment.”
It all sounds good to me. Yeah baby, rock that item of clothing again and again and again.
