Of all the ideas in my mind, the best ones stay the longest. Couple of years ago, I had an idea to make something interesting from my old jeans, so last year I decided to make a whole collection out of recycled denim. It took a while to gather all the denim I needed, and last autumn I finally started making the collection “Recycled Jeans”.
Two ideals, freedom – that not so many people have and feminism which unfortunately isn’t working in so many societies are reflected in the denim weave.
This collection includes dresses, skirts, a coat and a bomber jacket, all made from recycled jeans. I chose traditional male caps from the Balkan Peninsula as accessories to send a message that women deserve the same freedom and respect that men have.
Denim is a symbol of defiance against authority and oppression, people should wake up, look around and realize that this is the 21st century, everyone deserves a chance and women shouldn’t be oppressed and suppressed by society.
