Wearing the news

A unique answer to the question of what is sustainable fashion: this shoot by Peter Coulson doesn’t just involve the usual mix of clothing and skin, it also recycles newspapers, magazines and coke cans into wearable art.

Styled by Christina Chloe, models Paige and Elita wear collars, cuffs, lapels and bows constructed from recycled materials. It may not be your first choice for what to do with yesterday’s paper, but oddly enough it works.

Some people's wardrobes are about a small selection of pieces that all fit within one aesthetic - Tania Braukamper isn't such a person. With a wardrobe that spans three different rooms, her approach to fashion is a mixture of current-season key pieces mixed with vintage finds she's sourced on innumerous shopping trips around the world's more cultured capitals. Despite a disparate approach to shopping, Tania is adamant that the key to mixing vintage with new season is to stick to key looks and colours that work for oneself. And it's a theory that she works into her writing for Fashionising.com, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
