Old clothing. Unwanted clothing.
Don't throw them away.
They can have another life.
The materials used for Florence To collection are pre-used as in ends of materials that are unwanted from wholesales and scraps from markets as well as old curtains and fabrics that are passed on scraps from ends that will be thrown away.
Most of the materials have been kept for years till Florence has enough to create a new collection.
All collections are made in her studio and are sold on request, so nothing is made in mass.
Florence doesn't continue making unless she knows it will not be wasted again.
At present I work as a visual artist using a similar theme by using unwanted fabrics or fabrics that is wasted easily as screens for motion graphics and installations for events. I continue to work in a resourceful way to be creative but only if its is useful.
