Nottingham student creates sustainable clothing from tents

Inspired by the huge number of tents discarded after a festival, one university student felt inspired to create a sustainable, gender-neutral dress using tent fabric

Grace Reeves, who is a final year Fashion Design student at Nottingham Trent University, says,

 

I want to change people's perception of secondhand items by creating something technical and different. One of my goals is to make sustainable clothing more affordable. My concept is that life is a game, you can go to a party and later decide to climb a mountain in the same clothes. I really like versatility.

Emma Prince, Fashion Design course leader at Nottingham Trent University, adds,

 

The design community is increasingly keen on making designs kinder to the planet. It is great how Grace includes a personal touch in her upcycling from waste textiles and highlights the importance of inclusivity within her practice.
