On our minds is Timothy Bouyez-Forge and his fresh take on scrap-sourced couture. Rather than re-purposing old garments or small objects (most prominently seen at Margiela), the Royal College of Art graduate scored his MA collection through dismantled car and motorcycle parts shaped into couture pieces. Sourcing his scrap metals locally in East London, Bouyez-Forge’s designs motorbike fairings used for sculptural gowns and car bumpers vacuum-formed into trousers. Meaning that his approach to fashion design more resembles that of vehicle design, the young designer explores technology and recycling in new light.
