I love a good documentary.
And when it explores the future of fashion and gives me some new vocabulary words to throw around in certain circles, EVEN BETTER!
The Next Black is a compelling film that explores the way innovative designers and companies are creating the next big steps in clothing history.
We’ve all heard the words sustainability, slow fashion and recycling which are highlighted in this film, too, but what really rolled my socks up and down were the new phrases such as “Digital Couture Experiences”, “Wearable Tech” and “Bio Couture”.
When I watch a film like this, I’m totally inspired, recharged and ready to forge forward doing what I do. Creating new clothing from old isn’t as new and innovative as some of the techniques in The Next Black, but it’s still an important part of changing the way the world views clothing and fashion. It’s an honor and so much fun to be a part of this movement.
And even though this next refashion project wasn’t created on a 3-d printer, doesn’t measure your heart rate and wasn’t created in a petri dish, I still think it’s pretty cool.
We all have one — an old faithful winter coat that has kept us warm for years, but has gotten slightly blah. Instead of getting rid of it, give it a modern, edgy twist by adding leather.
