Reworking the existing....

Firstly i started to look at 'laundry techniques' for inspiration, the idea of distressing and reworking exixting garments was interesting. I was also found the environmental issues inspiring towards this project. I came across this article in the guardian about a denim distressing factory infecting rivers with indigo dye which gave me the idea of introducing a more eco-friendly way of working with denim.

As a starting point i began to work with pieces of denim; distressing and changing the surfaces to rework the fabric by dying, ripping, tearing etc.
