Durability and sustainability are important trends in the fashion industry. The term corporate social responsibility is used a lot nowadays and companies actually do try to reduce their carbon footprint. Unfortunately it seems that durability is of secondary importance, which truly is a shame.
Our very own fashion designer Luca Kemkes has therefore decided to create her own streetwear collection which focusses completely on durability. This is 'A Bed Collection'.
A Bed Collection is a streetwear collection which consists of clothes made of bedsheets. Luca went through different thrift stores and websites for the necessary material. After a long period of searching she found enough fabrics to create an entire collection. Luca designed and sowed all items herself with the help of a sowing machine she was given at the age of 12. All items are hip, trendy and most important of all: durable.
