RE;CODE Korea, Republic Of

Upcycled fashion is at the heart of Korean fashion brand Re;code. The team began after realising just how much of the “dead stock” in the fashion industry – even of their own label – was incinerated to protect brand integrity. With the idea of considering the environment and helping to protect it a little more, Re;code reinterprets old materials to give them a second life. By collaborating with independent designers to transform waste into a valuable item, they hope to challenge the idea of mainstream fashion through their contemporary cool range of bags, tops and jackets in a variety of up-cycled materials.

The Workshop

This is a workshop about clothing. It questions which clothing we want and need, for us and others, what for and for how long and how we can make and use it.

Yes, we like fashion but we must stop adding waste - instead we must use the waist that already exists. So let's find things out of fashion and out of context to invent and create something new and unseen. We are going to take things that had been produced but could not be sold, things which had been worn out, or things that had been lost and found. We'll take them apart and link them anew, nail them, glue them, stitch or sew them together into garments for a party, for a season, for yourself or for many others, something serious, posh, casual, sportive, fun, or formal.

This way we are going to give re-cycling its own language and pay tribute to a past taking part in the present. We don't want to be exclusive but inclusive and stimulate action, not consumption!
