This summer we had the pleasure of meeting the team behind Fashion Manifesto, a new book that takes a look at the year-long "shopping sabbatical" author Sofia Hedström took and how it changed her view on fashion, consumption, and style.
We were so inspired by Sofia's work, and all of the amazing artists, makers and designers she and photographer Anna Schori encountered through their journey, that we wanted to get our Kollabora member in on the action! That's why we're challenging you guys to skip buying yourself something new this season and DIY your closet instead with the Kollabora x Fashion Manifesto Fall Wardrobe Remake Challenge!
Here are all the details:
-Dig through your cloest and find a piece you want to upcycle, manipulate or rework
-Start an "In-Progress" project on your Kollabora page with "Fashion Manifesto Challenge" in the title, also make sure to tell us why you chose this piece and what you plan to do with it. You can also share any inspiration boards, supplies, or techniques you plan to use as well.
-Update us on your progress. Let us know if you get stuck. Ask questions from the community - we want to watch your refashion journey unfold!
-Finish up your project and post final photos by Monday, Sept 23rd.
-3 winning projects will be chosen based on Hearts (likes) - so tell your friends and family, activate your social networks, get all your favorite people involved in helping you win!
The 3 winning projects will each score an autographed copy of Fashion Manifesto and a Kollabora swag bag with tools and supplies to help make your DIY life that much easier.
You can also feel free to post photos on all of your social media outlets using the hashtags #kollabora #fashionmanifesto and #kollabrefashion
Soooo, what are you waiting for?! Start digging through your closet and dreaming up your killer refashioned piece (oh, and you can upload more than one, so don't be shy!). We can't wait to see what you make!
