Today, I am sharing an outfit idea using all “last season” items. You can see another pairing idea with the same top here.
I love science and I get easily excited by new technologies, especially when they are fashion related.
Most of our clothes are made out of synthetic fabrics that do not degrade easily in landfills. In the search for other biodegradable alternatives, scientist Gary Cass created a fabric from fermented wine. During the process of fermenting wine, a “skin” will form. Gary dried the extracted ‘skin’ and it turned into a delicate cellulose material similar to cotton.
Although the use of this fermented wine fabric is very limited, it sparks ideas and makes me wonder the possibilities out there we have yet to explore.
Thanks for reading, and see you soon in the next blog post.
Smile and style on~

P.S. They are all so “old”, and I couldn’t locate them online anymore. But you can find similar alternatives at affordable / more sustainable brands! 😀
