Reclaimed T-shirt with a cut-out shirt applied as if draped by a strong wind. Parts of cotton jersey and other types of cotton fabrics with visible contrasting seamlines. The draping is the illustration of a process. It is not coordinated with a previous sketch, it is the result of the designer's intuition and therefore is unique in each yard as the random power of wind is.These parts are rescued from boxes of unwanted items of friends and neighbours after they have decluttered their wardrobes or found in local thrift stores and reconstructed to obtain a new, desirable item. They are deliberately sewn in a DIY manner as to illustrate the 'homemade' techniques. The item can not be reproduced identically with respect to the type of fabrics and their exact arrangement nor to the seams irregularities. Each piece is individually cleaned, laid out, and cut at the Common studio and finished locally in Romania. Each garment comes with an individual tag that tells the story of the included parts, handwritten by the designer.
