ATTITUDE ADJUSTMENT

Fletcher hand-knits each piece from 100 percent, sustainably sourced British wool, as well as recycled yarns and fibers. The designer views this process as an occasion to slow down the typical fashion cycle, allowing for adjustable ensembles that are limitless in possibilities.

Fletcher’s knits can be mixed and matched for every occasion, season, and mood.

The winner of the 2009 Communication and Innovation Award in the Fashioning the Future student competition, Fletcher is part of a growing fashion movement that is reinventing garb we already own rather than creating something new from scratch. Their message: Refashioning makes ecological sense, making do doesn’t have to mean sacrifice, and frugal can be fun.
