This workshop is based on the idea of “upcycling” by transforming the traditional into the “current”, and by-products of the fashion industry into new materials or better products. Lulu Lutfi Labibi will demonstrate the creation process behind his “Celana Paman” collection, launched in 2011, in which he deconstructed oversized men’s pants and made them into dresses of various styles. In this workshop, participants will be asked to bring unused or unwanted clothings and be introduced to various technique for transforming them into ready-to-wear drapes.
