All These Couture Looks Were Made From Recycled Textiles


Supermodel and competition ambassador Bonnie Chen cuts a fine figure in the photoshoot, which features garments constructed from repurposed textiles such as discarded clothing, end-of-roll samples, industrial surplus, and a castoff Swiss Army blanket or two.

As captured by photographer Tim Wong, the inventiveness of these pieces is palpable. Enlivened by ethical stylist Denise Ho with jewelry by John Hardy, the 10 entries prove that so-called waste can go toe to toe—and hem to hem—with anything the pages of Vogue has to offer.

P.S.: Don’t forget to make a note in your calendar; you can catch a live screening of the show at

    I love love LOVE that the fashion industry finally seems to be changing its attitude. These are great designs, especially image #3.

    I suggest the Italian company Regenesi that manufactures high-quality eco-chic products with post-consumer materials. Who buys Regenesi knows that its products are made from regenerated materials and non-impacting production processes, with the guarantee of quality of the Italian craftsmanship. The attention to sustainability is coupled to the attention to Made in Italy beauty. Regenesi products can be purchased on-line at the e-commerce website: A great choice!
