Same as for wardrobe 12 and 13, we have not purchased any materials this season, and we created 30 couture looks with what was left in our atelier: leftover materials from couture discards, fabric scraps from previous seasons, vintage fabrics, factory waste and other trouvailles.

After last seasons molded eco felt corset, worn recently by Gwen Stefani, we took the concept of creating couture from discarded textiles a step further.

RVDK joined forces with 3 Dutch sustainability pioneers for Project Trashure, working on our common goal to find creative, technical and circular solutions to make textile trash into treasures.

Empowers learners to create a sustainable future.

As a kick-off for this collaboration and as part of RVDKs presentation during Paris Couture Week, we laser cut eco felt into chain links (#circulartextilechain) and assembled them by hand into a sculptural, cool, exciting and 100% sustainable couture statement. Look 34: dress, opera coat and an array of bags and accessories.
