Definition To break down into components; to dismantle To write about or analyse (a text for example) Maison Martin Margiela’s official glossary definition of recycling: The desire to give a garment a new life with old and new accessories to update it, to reconstruct it, to make a clean break from previous associations.
Many fashion designers including Issey Miyake, Martin Margiela and Vivienne Westwood have experimented with the idea of ‘Deconstruction’ When looking at Vivienne Westwood’s past collections, I thought ‘cut and slash’ was the most deconstructed sounding, but after further observation I discovered an item in the Punkature collection with elements of re utilising; A tube skirt made out of a cheap stockinette, she recalled ‘no one had made one before, the idea of a sweatshirt or jersey tube, you could wear it around your body however you wanted it but I liked it really low, ankle-length. I liked this falling-down look, with a bare tummy and a little cropped top'.
