Linda Thomas Eco Design: Luxury Upcycled Clothing

Linda Thomas Thursday, 1 August 2019

Luxury evening wear is not something you might commonly associate with upcycling. Yet designer - and force of nature - Linda Thomas's luxury upcycled clothing brand demonstrates that you don't need to compromise on elegance, romance or high-fashion styles to wear evening dresses that are also sustainable for our planet. 

The Linda Thomas Eco Design studio specialises in upcycling luxury materials such as silk, cashmere and merino into bespoke sustainable designs. In this video, we hear the background to her creative processes, how she approaches upcycling techniques specifically in designing evening wear and how she makes the fabric sing, plus how she got involved, designs and all, with the Extinction Rebellion climate action movement. 

In this video you'll learn:

  • How upcycling techniques can be applied to create beautiful, luxury evening wear
  • The creative process behind one of Linda's Eco Design dresses
  • The challenges of selling one-off creations to shops and other stockists
  • How Linda involved her design business with the Extinction Rebellion movement
