Vogue November 'More Dash Than Cash' Issue 2009
With the number of talented and innovative UK fashion designers, product designers and artists exploring themes of re:use and 'make do and mend' it's a joke that for their November 'more dash than cash' issue, Vogue decided to produce such ridiculous creations.
It completely undermines the work of serious desingers running businesses in the recession who are inspired by such themes. Instead of producing irrelevant 'garments' that aren't reusing anything (the team actually went out and bought all this cheap domestic plastic stuff new from the shops) they could have taken the opportunity to profile some amazing contemporary and relevant British talent.
