Find of the Week: From Somewhere

From Somewhere patiently reclaims fabrics collected from cutting room floors and the fashion industry’s trash cans. Designed by Orsola de Castro and Filippo Ricci, all From Somewhere’s collections are made with luxury designer pre-consumer waste, such as swatches, strike offs, sample yardage and production ends.  Up-cycling high-end fashion textile waste into beautiful clothes, From Somewhere re-thinks the fashion industry’s waste, reclaiming textiles as a design solution to an environmental problem.

Fashion is global.
Across all seven
continents people
create, innovate, share,
swap and reappropriate
clothing every day to
suit their style, to
express their personal or
cultural identity.  By
being aware of the
world around us, we
become aware of the
opportunities that exist
to identify or
differentiate our own
lives. By being part of
the global fashion
village, our own choices
inform others.

Every issue focuses on
each of the continents,
exploring the lives of
those who live and
work in each area.
See.7 magazine distills
this concept into words
and images through the
eyes of photographers,
stylists, art directors,
artists and writers from
around the world.
