From fashion waste to wearable art

Photography for Dawn Denim

Ethical fashion brand Dawn Denim asked 11 Saigon-based artists to upcycle a pair of so-called ‘B-grade’ pants. These items can’t be sold in shops because of minor mistakes, such as a sewing or printing error. Many brands burn or bury them, but Dawn opted to handle them in a more sustainable way.

The artist jeans were auctioned during an Open Factory Day, where visitors could also buy other ‘misfits’ with major discounts.
