T-Shirts and jeans for a couple of euros: cheap, mass produced goods that are often thrown away after being worn a few times. That might be good for the customer, but it's bad for the seamstresses in low-wage countries. The fashion label Schmidttakahashi wants to change that.
Berlin-based designers Eugenie Schmidt and Mariko Takahashi fashion new, exclusive apparel out of used clothing. Their label recently made an appearance at Paris Fashion Week.
