UPCYCLING PROJECT EXHIBITION
On February 2015, Frameworq launched a 2 month Upcycling Project, bringing a group of independent designers and Fashion Design students from the Art Institute of Vancouver, to explore, experiment and challenge their own assumptions around upcycling.
The purpose of the Upcycling Project was not to create a one of a kind piece, but to create a repetitive and effective method to upcycle post-consumer materials into ready to wear, contemporary garments that we can wear every day.
Designers were asked to design a mini collection and create 2-3 looks that will reflect their perception of a wearable upcycled piece.
In this exhibition we reveal for the first time the work of the designers, the challenges, constraints and final lessons learned through their upcycled creation.

WORKSHOP / IRINA MOLOHOVSKY
The purpose of this presentation is to introduce the concept of upcycling with textiles as a way to communicate the message of sustainability to multiple sectors such as consumers, retailers and designers in a positive way to drive change and the transformation to Circular Economy.
We’ll tell you all about Frameworq. The incredible lessons we learned and the conclusions we found during the 2 months of Frameworq’s Upcycling Project with 12 designers and the collaboration with the Art Institute of Vancouver when introducing upcycling to Fashion design students.
But that’s not all; we’ll conclude the presentation with hands on mini upcycling workshop and together convert used T-shirts into great and practical grocery bags (no sewing).
