The work above is by Claire Phasuntia who works with reclaimed denim which she sometimes bleaches and dyes. Her work is far more dynamic than my photo suggests and includesstitching, weaving, print and collage and pulping denim fibres to make into handmade paper which she then refashions into wall art. Unfortunately I couldn't find any information on google for her at all!

The dress above has been made from the cuffs of men's jackets. (sorry, My brain won't dredge up whether this is Claire's work or not).

There was a whole area dedicated to Recycle, Reuse and Reclaim with a wide variety of interpretations.

These extravagant costumes have all been made with recycled wire from television sets.

These are recycled plastic carrier bags made into dresses.
