Re-cut, re-worked, reborn
Winter 2012 - Junky Styling – another newcomer and another winner - claimed the RSPCA Good Business Award 2010 for Fashion Clothing.
This innovative design-lead label, where every product is made from recycled textiles of the best quality second-hand clothing, has been a fashion success. Imagine a deconstructed, re-cut and completely transformed unwanted men’s suit jacket, re-designed and reborn as a women’s halter dress. That’s Junky Styling.
“For this Autumn/Winter season, the materials used were all of recycled woollens, either from sorting rooms or from old stock in English factories,” says busy Krt Williams of Junky Styling, “our collection hasn’t harmed any of the animal kingdom - we’ve made sure of it!”
Featuring regularly in the fashion media, both at home and abroad, Junky Styling have seen their profile grow and, with it, interest in recycled clothing.
Labelled ‘high street fashion couture’ by Vogue and worn by celebrities including Gwen Stefani, since launching the wholesale collection shown in both London and Paris in 2004, they have secured stockists both nationally and internationally, and can be found in many places between London and Hong Kong.
The New Yorker says...
old suits and repurposing them as scarves or gaiters….the result is an eccentrically
chic line of mutant couture
Funk that junk!
Caryn Franklin, fashion writer and broadcaster, says:
Junky Styling were doing it way back when. It’s just that the rest of us have taken an age to catch up.
