Ethical fashion design, with an emphasis on up cycle, re-purpose, and re-make design methodologies.
D’Arcy Couture is an ethical fashion design boutique that supports up cycle and re-purpose design methodologies. Her home-based studio is located in the San Francisco Bay Area, where she sells her up cycled clothing year round at local street festivals. She also exhibits in local galleries and museums.
Darcy's collection is largely designed from materials that have been discarded. Her belts are re-made from fabric and leather samples that are discarded seasonally. She up cycles purses from worn out leather jackets or fabric scraps. Dresses, skirts, and pants have been re-purposed from discarded t-shirts. In addition, Darcy will take an unloved jacket and re-make an entire outfit around it, creating a fresh new ensemble.
Consider your own closet a goldmine for new ideas. Up cycle and re-make old tired clothing into new artistic ensembles! Or hire D’Arcy Couture for your fashion re-make over.
Today is the first day of spring, and although the weather is never warm enough early on to justify shorts and t-shirts, this day represents a time to start packing up the winter wardrobe. Spring is a good time to experiment with blacks and whites, as they are neutral, and white adds a fresh component to any ensemble. Even your old black winter pea coat can look new over white!
