A Russian Eco-Friendly designer truly believes in the saying “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure”.
Artur Brazhe has been clothes and costumes out of recyclable materials, known as “upcycling”, for years, preferring those that damage the nature the most, like plastic bottles and bags, aluminum cans and construction waste.
Once in a while he visits junkyards and dumps near his home, not only for inspiration but also to collect things and materials to give them a second life.
His works have won several Russian Fashion Contests, including “Russian Silhouette”. A prestigious award for new fashion designers for his collection of costumes made out of newspapers.
