What we're about
If you believe in using what you have or what others give away to create new fashions rather than buying new retail fashions this is the group for you! (it's still okay to buy retail too.)
If you would like to share ideas, examples of your work, resources you've found, and events relevant to our interests this is the group for you! Or if you would like to admire other folks work while you building your own skills, we love an enthusiastic audience.
If you want to be inspired and learn upcycling methods then this is the group for you!
If you know practically nothing about upcycling but are interested, this is the group for you!
"Upcycling" in fashion means we start with existing fashion (clothing, shoes, jewelry, handbags, etc.) and transform these items into something wearable, better than before, rather than buying new retail goods. We make the transformation happen through application of creativity, materials, and labor.
We get together as a group to share, work on projects, attend relevant events in the Bay Area, and post upcycling news. We love new members!
