Glad to see that the Felder Felder sisters are making considered fashion by incorporating sustainable fabrics into their new collection for A/W2016.
Co-designers, twins Annette and Daniela Felder, have created their new line exclusively from up-cycled and sustainable fabrics
The brand’s ‘Carbon Dress’ will take centre stage on the runway, and is made from 100% sustainable carbon fibre from BMW’s electric vehicle programme.
This woven form of carbon fibre comes in huge rolls – like fabric – and is compacted together to create the light bodies of electric cars.
But after more than 100 hours in the hands of two of London’s top designers, it has become a shimmering, tasseled dress (the tassels are also created from the fibre) inspired by 60s stage costumes.
