Overview


This book records the rise and rise of Junky Styling, the fashion label and at the same time shows readers how to recycle their own good quality second-hand clothing, deconstructing, re-cutting and completely transforming it into a new product that belies the former identity of the raw material. Junky Styling: Wardrobe Surgery is a beautifully designed and illustrated publication, designed to show fashion students, hobby-sewers, textiles fanatics and anyone with an interest in ecological and recycling issues how to reconstruct stylish, individual clothing from things they no longer wear, and how two women with a passion for fabrics and a flair for stylish design built a thriving and successful business doing just that. This book will inspire everyone who reads it to look at their discarded clothes with fresh eyes and a resourceful frame of mind.

Meet the Author


Anni Sanders and Kerry Seager are best friends, and co-directors of the successful fashion label Junky Styling, which was officially launched in 1997. They began buying old men's suits from secondhand shops and reconstructing them into experimental creations to wear out clubbing in London in the early 1990s - these attracted so much interest that they opened a stall in Kensington Market, and then a studio and retail shop in East London. High-profile Junky Styling clients include Kate Moss, Sadie Frost, Sienna Miller, Gwen Stefani and Russell Brand. Junky Styling featured in the most recent London and Paris Fashion Weeks.
