A triennial project, based on the notion of ‘Recycling’ with all its connotations from recycling ideas, material, institutions, to recycling music, theatre, poetry, novels, archives, exhibitions, waste … etc ). During 2017, the project’s concept revolved around readapting used clothes to modern outfits based on six exercises supervised by the fashion designer Rami Kashou;
1. First exercise: The designers select a piece of the design, which was completed in the first phase of the project and modified.
2. Second exercise: The designers redesign a piece of clothing from the Samar Dawood boutique and produce a high quality piece of clothing with the largest proportion of the designed piece based on the original piece (70%-80% of the original piece).
3. Third exercise: The designers select and use non-traditional materials not usually used in fashion in designing their own pieces and work to produce a piece of high quality so that the non-traditional materials appear to be cloth.
4. Fourth exercise: The designers produce a fabric depending on one or more of these methods, or others: printing, tanning, embroidery, patching, weaving beads or textiles to produce an evening dress.
