The Remake Challenge – A Collaboration

So might have have seen my posts on Facebook and Twitter about the Remake Challenge and wondered what I was on about. So here is the down-low:

‘The Live Eco Remake Design Challenge is a sustainable design competition that challenges students and emerging designers to create mainstream clothing and objects whilst adhering to sustainable design principles and eliminating waste in their production methods.’

This year KIN (one of the first shops I ever stocked) decided to support the competition by pairing up some of their jewellery designers with the fashion finalists. So I was teamed up with Leandra du Bruyn who created beautiful textured work in pale tones. We chatted a bit and decided that my Natural Collection best suited her designs and we decided to build on that and incorporate brass.

The prize giving for the competition happened last week Thursday, and I am very pleased to announce that Leandra came 2nd place! I like to think the jewellery helped a little…

And here you go, some images of the jewellery. I’m quite please with the final result and am thinking about making more to sell through my stockists, what do you think?
