Abstract

The concept was to repurpose small samples of silk fabrics into a modified silk sack dress. Repurposing has been one strategy in the apparel sustainability movement, and one of this designer’s great interests. According to the online Merriam-Webster Dictionary (2015), to repurpose is to give a new use or purpose to. The weight and drape of the silk samples made the sack dress a suitable silhouette for further design exploration.
