In 2015, we’ve invited a group of 23 designers and students from the Art Institute of Vancouver, to participate in a 2 months *Upcycling Project to explore different ways to upcycle post-consumer materials into contemporary and ready to wear garments.

Post-consumer textile waste is waste generated and collected after the consumer has used and disposed of it.

It includes secondhand clothing or fashion accessories that have been used and discarded by consumers.
