Upcycling: 10 cool Brands & Designers
In occasion of Fashion Revolution Week 2022, we celebrated upcycling and circularity!
Indeed, we teamed up with Nathalie Klok, a creative social psychologist and slow sustainable fashion expert, better known on Instagram as @lemonadeamsterdam
Nathalie introduced to us a selection of upcycling designers, therefore this selection of designers and independent brands that work beautifully with upcycling ♻️😎
Using only materials that are already in existence, Freya Simonne reworks and upcycles preloved textiles into beautiful forever pieces of upcycled clothing.
Precisely, her mission is to show an alternative way of doing fashion that actively gives back to both people and planet.
Yeah Right carefully picks up used fast fashion items one by one, wash, dissemble, cut and sew them and makes creative kind of street style garments.

Bettina Bakdal’s words: “We are living in a world where the fashion industry is producing too much—more than anyone can ever even wear. We have to take responsibility and be forward thinking. We need art and beauty, not more conspicuous consumption.”
A pioneer of the upcycle movement and passionate circular fashion advocate, textile artist and thrift fanatic
Rebecca Caulford’s original vintage‑inspired designs are so much more than simply recycling and repurposing second hand materials.
