This book records the rise and rise of Junky Styling, the fashion label and at the same time shows readers how to recycle their own good quality second-hand clothing, deconstructing, re-cutting and completely transforming it into a new product that belies the former identity of the raw material. Junky Styling: Wardrobe Surgery is a beautifully designed and illustrated publication, designed to show fashion students, hobby-sewers, textiles fanatics and anyone with an interest in ecological and recycling issues how to reconstruct stylish, individual clothing from things they no longer wear, and how two women with a passion for fabrics and a flair for stylish design built a thriving and successful business doing just that. This book will inspire everyone who reads it to look at their discarded clothes with fresh eyes and a resourceful frame of mind.
Projects include deconstructing an old suit, and reconstructing tops, dresses and trousers. It covers the potential and pitfalls of working with recycled fabrics. It should be snapped up by fashion students, who are often set research projects on the company and their methods and collections. The company also features on the GCSE and A-level syllabus. Junky Styling has a high profile in the fashion and textiles world, is frequently mentioned in the press, features in international fashion shows, is sold at Topshop, and has a huge mailing list. The authors will be promoting the book alongside all their other promotions and press features, and the book will also be sold through Brother, one of their sponsors. Junky Styling was featured on the most recent series of The Apprentice, in the fashion episode.
