Cut, Make, Trim is a magazine guide to sustainable clothing habits- made from recycled newsprint and canvas fabric. A collection of interviews, photography, how-tos, and illustrations, the publication investigates efforts to combat the devastating effects of the fast fashion industry: from the ethics of buying from second-hand stores to DIY internet trends.
Thorough interviews and contributions from advocates of sustainable fashion, Cut, Make, Trim focusses on three areas of sustainable fashion: reworking, reusing and repurposing, to encourage its audience’s creativity and reshape the negative connotation of ‘second-hand’. The project was widely shared and reposted, spreading the spirit of sustainability embedded in Cut, Make, Trim.
