Trash to Fashion Wearable Arts Parade - Week 10

Thinking outside the square to produce an innovative garment from trash has proved a challenge for Ruma Rima.  A challenge we accepted.

The criteria required the garments to be made from either:  household, industrial, manufactured or man-made waste; or re-used/recycled clothing, objects, fabric off-cuts.  We were encouraged to use construction materials that were environmentally friendly.

We had to produce an extensive documented portfolio including initial drawings and diarise each day of creating.  Some fantastic garments evolved, and it has been a great experience!  A big thank you to Ngaire and Sarah for lending a hand in the classroom when the sewing machines were first unpacked and also Els Willers for donating such wonderful items to get creative with.

We hope you enjoy our garments!


  1. I don't like to be off-topic, but I have a problem which I hope you can help me. My problem is when I have Blogger on my computer. (All other areas seem to be fine) Whenever I press the "new post" button it seems to take *forever* to get to to the proper screen. It just says "loading..." at the top. It does eventually get to the proper screen, but this is after 45 minutes or more. Have you had this problem, and what did you do to solve it? My computer is a HP Chromebook 14. Thank you very much.

  2. Hmmm . . . strange. I've never experienced this problem. We use Chromebooks (students) and I use MacBook Pro. Are you clicking on the pencil?
