denim diy

[MY FAVOURITE THING TODAY] I think my love for South African fast fashion retailer Mr Price is pretty well known by now. But how can I not love them when their media communication is just so very on point? 

Today, the seventeam received a press release/ save the date/ challenge from Mr Price HQ. A pair of skinny jeans and enough DIY goodies to start our own craft shop. The challenge: create a bespoke pair of seventeen jeans that’ll be used in a denim installation on 14 November. 

How clever, right? 

The seventeam is sure to have LOADS of fun with this one. Thanks Mr Price.

I’m (obviously) not the biggest fan of home repairs, as a large part of my job is fixing home repairs gone bad, and I view professional darning as the best and most durable method to repair jeans. But my brother’s loving and creative ways of repairing his favorite 10+ year old jeans has made me appreciate DIY repairs in a whole new way as an artistic process over a utilitarian fix. #denim #denimrepair #diy #sewing #repairyourjeans (at Belmont, Massachusetts)

A $6.50 thrift store find turned into a true masterpiece for the Kesha concert tomorrow. I think @iiswhoiis would be proud. Complete with intergalactic acid wash, black and gold studs, gold chains, and plenty of glitter I am fucking stoked with how this turned out. I’m ready to rock #FuckTheWorld in this vest. I can’t wait for tomorrow night. #Kesha2016 #FuckTheWorldTour #Crafting #Intergalactic
