refashioning clothes by Old Is The New Black 5

The simpleast way to transform or refresh an old garment is to dye it. I prefer black and gray as they look timeless, fit my wardrobe perfectly and work 95% in dyeing. Old is the New Black is a fashion reclaiming movement instigated by the Black Fashion Bureau. They use black paint to refashion any old garment back into life. I´m quite sure they don´t see this my way, but the first thing that came to mind after seeing these creations, is the oil catastrophy at the Gulf of Mexico. To see all of their works, go to Old is the New Black gallery

HOW TO
1. Source old garment(s) this could be something you own that’s damaged / stained / no longer on trend / OR something you have found / reclaimed
2. Source black paint. This could be from your local DIY store / art shop / something left over found in your shed…
3. PAINT IT BLACK using a small sponge or a small paint roller!
4. Get someone to photograph you wearing your finished garment(s) and submit them to Old is the New Black!
