Cirra-Sue Tebbutt, designer for fashion brand Cirra-Sue says her SS18 collection presented at Kampala Fashion Week is titled, R&R standing for Revive & Repurpose. The 10-piece collection was put together to inspire Ugandan locals to contribute to and strengthen their local industries. (#BUBU sound familiar?)
By reviving and repurposing second-hand clothing, we are creating sustainable fashion that can indefinitely contribute to the environmental and social well-being in Uganda. [This] new R&R collection has been [primarily] created from second-hand clothing I personally sourced in local markets here in Uganda. By reving and repurposing these old clothes from western countries, we can create work [opportunities] for Ugandan locals.
The R&R collection is a one-off ready-to-wear collection that is already available for sale.
