The Urban Renewal Project at Urban Outfitters: New Fashions from Upcycled Fabrics

Design, urbanoutfitters, renewal

Within their vintage section, Urban Outfitters has an interesting department called Urban Renewal.

The silhouettes in the collection are designed then constructed with vintage and deadstock fabric and trim sourced from around the world, creating distinctive, fashion-forward pieces. They promise that each piece is unique, which means you can't expect to receive exactly what's pictured. Some of the items, like the graphic sweatshirt, seem like more of a grab bag. You choose your shape, size and color, and they choose the printed design from those available.
