Having previously worked in a production sewing room, Logan Blagg was used to being surrounded by beautiful fabric, materials and embellishments. But she also saw how much was being discarded into the waste bin, and decided to save it to make her own pieces.
With a mission to “dress like-minded souls without contributing to the waste that is the fashion industry,” Blagg’s namesake line utilizes salvaged scraps to make wonderful, whimsical, one-of-a-kind pieces. Combining intuitive clothing construction with powerful pops of color, she injects some serious joy into sustainable fashion.
“Draping is essential for the process, allowing for optimum use of the natural shapes both the scrap pieces and the body provide,” she explained.
In addition to salvaged materials from the sewing room, she also collects deadstock fabric, and even utilizes old muslins and vinyl casing from bedding.
“FABSCRAP has also been a huge resource for the brand, providing deadstock fabric that other companies decided to toss,” she said
Blagg then uses bricolage and natural dye techniques to create her own textiles. She also creates jewelry out of baubles, beads and fabric. And though she showcases the pieces online, their colors, sizing and materials can be altered based on customers’ preferences.
