Deconstructing, re-styling, and completely transforming old clothes is all the rage right now and this 160-page book, Junky Styling: Wardrobe Surgery is a beautifully designed and illustrated softcover publication that will inspire all who read it to take a new look at their discarded fashions.
The authors, Annika Sanders and Kerry Seager, launched a successful fashion label called Junky Styling in 1997 where they bought clothes from secondhand shops, like old men’s suits, and refashioned them into creations that were worn in London’s clubbing scene in the 90’s. Their work has since been featured at London and Paris Fashion Weeks, and their clients include celebrities like Gwen Stefani, Kate Moss, Russell Brand, and Sienna Miller.
Published by A & C Black Publishers Ltd (July 30, 2009), the book is listed for $32.87 at Amazon. Check out the tutorial excerpt to make this funky blouse from an old pair of men’s slacks and then read the book for more inspiration on revamping your wardrobe!
