Junky Styling

I just realised that I´ve been on a lookout for new trashion talent for so long that I´m totally neglecting some of my oldest favorites. Junky Styling is one of the first fashion brands that I found that restyles clothing. They are the "Prada" of trashion. I often come back to Junky Styling collections and shop for inspiration. Someday I want my projects to look like this!

Annika Sanders and Kerry Seager founded the brand in 1997. Junky styling was the perfect tag to attach to their unique style of clothing. Annika and Kerry chose charity shops and jumble sales as the source of second hand traditional suits to deconstruct and then redesign into twisted tailored garments. They have a shop in East London’s Brick Lane. The shop also houses the industrial design studio, where customers are invited to bring their old worn out clothes for ‘Wardrobe Surgery’ - this involves the customers in the redesigning/recycling process. Everything produced by Junky is recycled from secondhand clothing re-cut and completely transformed into a new product that belies the former identity of the raw material. All garments are made in house or carefully outsourced locally. All products stocked in the Junky Store are either recycled, fair trade, made from organic materials or ethically produced. The individual is the focus at Junky as they ensure no 2 garments are the same - they can be cut from the same pattern but the raw materials will always be different. Junky hope to inspire all their customers to look at their discarded clothes and general waste items with fresh eyes and a resourceful frame of mind. Me too!!
