DESIGN FOR RE-USE
“I just want to get married again so I can wear my dress some more.” Danielle
(Danielle had her dress dyed black and has worn it to parties)
Historically, special garments like wedding dresses were adapted after the event so they could be worn again. The sleeves were unpicked and removed, skirt lengths were shortened, and lace was unpicked and carefully saved.
Thoughtful design in the initial stages means a dress that you can wear again. It could have a detachable train, have a lace overlay or a change in the length or colour.
Pearl Button offers an alteration service so your dress can be altered after your wedding.
What better way to have a sustainable wedding!
