In this 110th episode of Wardrobe Crisis, a sustainable fashion podcast from VOGUE’s sustainability editor Clare Press, she asks some questions about fashion’s latest obsession: upcycling. Three emerging designers: Londoners Maddie Williams and Helen Kirkum, and Duran Lantink from The Netherlands. “Through my work I try to show that ‘eco’ fashion can still be exciting and avant-garde, aiming to dispel the assumptions of it having to be minimal, or hippie or overtly home-crafty.
