For this 2009 collection I took ten Marks and Spencer’s shirts that I wanted to ‘upcycle’. I always find hundreds of these M&S shirts when I go second-hand shopping. The key technical approach to this collection is concerned with ‘multiple print lives’, or ‘lifecycle print layers’ (LPL’s). I experimented with designing over-prints that could be added to in time with another layer of decoration.
The resulting shirts were exhibited in Tilberg in 2010.
