With the #nowaste movement gaining ground, it’s time to look at how we can extend the lives of the items we love. While we generally have a “use and throw it out” mentality, this doesn’t really apply to our favourite shoes, bags, and clothes. These are the ones that we gravitate towards, reaching for that one piece over and over again above all others. These are the items that we love the most, and thus are the ones that wear out over time.
Time to source out the repair shop / tailor / fix-it auntie who will be able to revitalise that beloved piece, breathing new life into it. And if it’s really that special (or expensive), you’d want to rely on people who know what they’re doing, before they take a pair of scissors or a needle to your favourite fashion finds.
After all when it comes to fashion restoration, the key is in the craftsmanship. You would want to trust a specialist, rather than a jack-of-all-trades. Never fear — we’ve compiled a list of where to go for that dire repair job.
