"London-based label DIYcouture launches its debut collection DIYC
DIYcouture removes the need for complex sewing patterns, so that learning to make clothes is easy and accessible to all.
The pieces of clothing in the collection are possibilities that live in the imagination, on paper, in potential. They are ghosts that come into being as each person begins to build them himself with his own interpretations.
Inspired by the thousands of invisible pairs of hands around the globe that make the clothes we buy, DIYcouture hopes to inspire people to turn off their screens and get up to their elbows in the 3-dimensional world of creation. It supports the slow revolution. Helping people to produce garments that are precious, rather than disposable, this is the antithesis of fast-fashion.
From December, DIYcouture will publish one instruction book a month. One book = one garment. Each book also prints a series of previously unpublished work by artists from around the world."
