Bethany Cordwell

Waste Age

Bethany Cordwell’s collection 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 sourced from Vinnies stores, friends and family, as well as other found objects and materials. The collection features monster-type creatures which represent the ‘monsters’ consumers have become, with Bethany hoping viewers will reflect upon the detrimental impact fast fashion can have on the enviroment.
