Heidi and Seek Upcycled Women's Clothing

Monday, June 3, 2013

There are times when writing a blog introduces you to great people, individuals that share a similar interests and passions. Meeting other blog writers face-to-face however, is somewhat of a rarity. (unless attending an organised event such the Nuffnang Op Shop Crawl which took place in March this year).

The first time I did meet a blog writer face-to-face, was an afternoon spent with Hayley Lau.  Hayley helped me create one of my first ever refashions, at a time when I decided I'd like to sew and make  recycled clothes of my own.  She helped me piece together a reconstructed t-shirt dress; an idea I had after buying two separate second-hand garments from local opportunity shops.

At the time, Hayley had been taking a break from her successful upcycled women's fashion line Heidi & Seek.  After a few years absence,  Hayley has recently returned to her creative venture, and Heidi & Seek is reborn:

local designer remnant trim

XS upcycled top long sleeved in pale blue and grey - extrasmall

Hayley's style and creatively is unique.  Her one-of-a-kind pieces are edgy yet easy to wear, flattering, and above all, eco-friendly - recycling existing garments into 'new'.

These refashions are of a very high standard. Thanks for sharing. The skirt is just divine and I love the print in the peacock top.

What lovely redesigns! Much more sophisticated than the tshirt surgery I used to do as a budding tweenage opshopper! Meeting other bloggers is the best fun as they understand your gripes about outfit photography and formatting and stuff.
