1 Garment - 5 Days - 5 Ways
Taking one trench coat and wearing it every day for 5 days.
Each evening I transformed the shape, neither adding nor taking away any fabric from the original garment.
This alteration and transformation journey aims to highlight the potential variety within one item of clothing and to encourage creativity to extend the life cycles of garments that are no longer desired.
UPcycling: Make an impact
(but not on the environment)
