Although many fashion designers would believe it to be sacrilegious to tear up any piece of haute couture, it appears that those involved in the Louis Vuitton Reconstruction 2.0 competition felt differently. Students from the Parson's School of Fashion slashed up samples from Louis Vuitton's Spring/Summer 2010 collection in order to reconstruct them into wearable art.

Although an interesting concept, the Louis Vuitton Reconstruction 2.0 competition seems to have been a spontaneous undertaking. Through this project, 24 students were able to create travel blankets that are more practical than whatever shape these materials took before. Stats for Slashed Up Couture Trending: Older & Buzzing
