Up-Cycle Sew Down

Charity & Fashion

Three groups of Leeds University School of Design Students were challenged by Oxfam Online to Up-Cycle damaged garments for Charity in a 12 hour marathon ‘Sew-Down’

Over the course of the ‘Sew-Down’ a whopping total of £6030 worth of clothes were repaired and given a fresh new look by students and were ready to be photographed and listed on Oxfam Online Shop.

This blue vintage but damaged coat (modeled by Rheanna) was up-cycled by Design Student Bryony Hatrick, and repaired with the addition of re-cycled silk scarf patchworks to create this amazing new look.
