Waste Age

Bethany’s collection ‘Waste Age’ focuses on wastage within the fashion industry, paying particular attention to the excessive consumption of fast-fashion.

The entire collection is made from 100% recycled items, which the designer has discovered in Vinnies stores or have been donated by friends and family, as well as other found objects and materials.

The collection features monstrous creatures that represent the “monsters” consumers have become, with Bethany hoping viewers will reflect upon the detrimental impact fast fashion can have on the world.
