Though there are many eco-conscious clothing lines, no designer I've seen has taken it to the level that Avantgarb(age) has. A unique project, this collection not only focuses on converting trash into fashion, but also on relaying their message and beliefs through carefully crafted portraits.
A partnership between American photographer Caitlin Margaret Kelly and designer Aidana Baldassarre, Avantgarb(age) combines their two skills for a remarkable line. Thankfully forgoing the preachy stance of the evils of consumerism, Avantgarb(age) simply addresses the power of art, discarded materials, and textures as well as the contrast between city and nature.
From corks to ties and tires, Avantgarb(age) utilizes everything and anything on hand. Enjoy their creations in the featured gallery.
