This is an Upcycled Dress-Top, made from a XXL Men's organic hemp t-shirt from one of THTC's past seasons.
They are very limited edition, no mor than 5 of them have been produced in any one colour! All are all one size - The model pictured from the front is a size 10. They will be fairly baggy on a size 8, and will also fit a size 12 as a looser fitted garment.
The design was created by Pamela Daniels of My Only One.
Pamela is, like THTC, a founding member of the Ethical Fashion Forum.
THTC was asked to showcase its line of upcycled clothing at the Start Garden Party, Clarence House, taking part in four days of seminars at the venue with pop legend Sinitta, who modeled some upcycled versions of her classic eighties outfits redesigned by From Somewhere and Junky Styling. The event was hosted by prominent environmental journalist Lucy Siegle (who also set up the Observer Ethical Awards) and was attended by Prince Charles among others.
