Photoshoot with the lovely Jamal Cazare!

Together we explored what sustainable fashion could look like. Three locations in Leipzig, four stunning models, and countless NOT_A_STUDIO Items. Let us take you away to "LIPGLOSS", "PYTHON" and "CACTUS", our sustainable fashion fairytales.

Enjoy the ride...

NOT_A_STUDIO at the EIERMANNBAU! 


N_A_S teamed up with Aurelia Becker and Anna Zeitler as "LAB FOR USE LESS". We all have a background in fashion and focus on sustainability and reuse. Each of us has found her very own strategy of practicing sustainability and fashion by using disposed garments as a resource.

We used the space at the Eiermannbau in Apolda to install our temporary studio and dive into 250 kg of disposed garments. It was our ultimate goal to let go of our daily practice and the pressure of working towards a specific goal. Here we had the space and time to play and explore, to break free of old and well known strategies of our artistic practices. During these two weeks we worked together or solidly, used garments to create installations, examined their further potential, performed with them and deconstructed their shapes. The process is the outcome, a story of exploration: LAB_FOR_USE_LESS

Friday July_5th_2019

We launched the project NOT_A_STUDIO with an exhibition and the premiere of our  ADD_IT_COLLECTION.

Worn on top of the wearer’s own outfit the Items function more like textile jewellery or add-on apparel. All "ADDITS" are as gender and size inclusive as possible.

The pieces are made from disposed garments, supplied by TexAid – one of Germany’s largest textile separating plants - and fabric scraps from other brands’ production runs.

 

You can find more photos of the show here.

Thanks to everyone who came out at this special day, it was a blast.

 

Also a big THANK YOU to all the helping hands. To Gregor and Nicole especially for planning and curating the exhibition and all the beautiful people who did such a great job at walking the catwalk.

Full video coming soon ...
