Maya Hansen: UPCYCLED Corsets

Maya Hansenpresents her 'UPCYCLED' collection at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Madrid based on, circular economy and up cycling as a response to climate challenge, the protection of the planet's biodiversity and the health of its inhabitants.

The collection arises with the intent of converting, with the language of the corset as a hallmark, manufacturing remains and surplus stock into unique garments combining social awareness together with innovation.

The designer recycles and reconverts sports items from the brand Skechers. Football, basketball, running or athletics are the inspiration for a collection where colours as well as the concept suggest dynamism and strength. Technical and knit fabrics are chosen to combine both structured and loose and relaxed garments creating contemporary silhouettes.
