Eco-friendly editorial ‘Make Do and Mend’ featured in Vogue UK 2009 recycles ordinary household objects and turns them into couture garments. Polish beauty Malgosia Bela models the DIY recycled regalia the dollar-conscious couture creations that cost $10-$250 to make. And they were captured by my favourite photographer, Tim Walker!
Stylists: The extraordinary outfits were created by prop stylists Shona Heath, William Tempest and Peter Jensen under the watchful eye of fashion editor Kate Phelan.
Photographer: Tim Walker.

The collection is pieces of artwork where various gateways are inverted so history and modernity combines into creating a sense of subversion. Under the surface it embers with artistic and intellectual creativity in a quiet rebellious way.
“Wear it as your self and/or rip it, reverse it, make it your own, choose your own accessories to create further on it. But in the beginning, all the dresses were the same.”
On June 26, 2009, 150 guests gathered in Pakhus 11 in Copenhagen, Denmark, for an unusual party and red carpet photography of all guests. All female guests wearing the same designer dress by Atelier Bøgelund-Jensen.
