  • Objective:

    To introduce to students ways to reuse old clothing. This exercise teaches students to think before throwing an item away, making them better consumers for the future. In addition, they will learn a new way to satisfy their endless quest for new fashions.

    Suggested Classes: Clothing, Fashion Design

    Student Activity:

    Students research fashion trends, and create a new garment out of vintage apparel.

    Suggested Materials:

    Vintage clothing Sewing machine Thread Pins Scissors Fabric paints Trims such as buttons, laces, buckles, zippers, seam tapes, old jewelry, etc.

    Warm-Up Exercise:

    Invite a guest speaker from FIDM into the classroom to talk about fashion trends and how to spot them. The day before the project, have students research fashion trends that appeal to them. They can use high fashion magazines that cover European shows. Students should come to class prepared with several trends to share with the other students.

  • Project Guidelines:

    Have students procure one or two second-hand garments in good condition (from a thrift store or, with permission, their parents wardrobes, or something discarded from his or her own closet). For inspiration, have students research the time period of the garment. Students select a partner who wears approximately the same size clothing.

    Using the trends that students found when researching, students create rough sketches of their fashion concepts, then cut out shapes from the fabric of their vintage garments. Using their partner as a fit model, students pin the shapes together on the live body. When satisfied with the fit, the final step is to sew the garment together (by hand or with a sewing machine).

    Have students add trims in unusual ways (e.g., buckles as buttons, lace as straps, jew-elry as buttons, etc.), or repurpose part of the garment to create a fashion statement. Encourage students to be creative.
