PAST PRESENT FUTURE
Inspired by the River Nile, Past Present Future (PPF) seeks to highlight the management, use and disposal of fashion and technology in a way that minimises environmental damage and encourages sustainable environmental practices by responsible production. Fashion and technology are large contributors to greenhouse gas emissions, but can be the catalyst for businesses to change how they manage what resources go into their products or services.
PPF is a transeasonal design series, addressing sustainability and circularity as the way to address our impact on the environment. This series demonstrates how we can extend the life of garments by upcycling traditional menswear, jackets, coats, shirts, trousers, and wedding gowns in combination with Ugandan Barkcloth. The rustic Barkcloth and upcycled fabrics complement each other beautifully, as Barkcloth is one of the best ambassadors for sustainability. It is one of the oldest cloths made by man (Past) together with the used garments (also Past). As part of our R3 Sustainable by design ethos, upcycling is a way of prolonging the life of a garment and reducing waste thereby connecting the Past and Present to the Future.
‘José Hendo’ takes a fresh approach to contemporary fashion design, challenging the obsolescence nature of fashion, and the throw away culture.
