MAKE DIY COU­TURE

Elle (Canada) - - Fashion & Style -

Haute cou­ture may be the great­est fash­ion in­dul­gence of all, but what if you could be­come your own cou­turière? Dutch de­signer Mar­tijn van Strien’s The Post-Cou­ture Col­lec­tive wants to hand you (yes, you!) the tools to piece to­gether your clothes. Van Strien de­vel­oped down­load­able cloth­ing pat­terns that can be cut and as­sem­bled by any­one—no sew­ing ex­pe­ri­ence re­quired (although a laser cut­ter helps). All you have to do to make the min­i­mal coats, dresses and tops is weave the pieces to­gether through notches and slits—think of it as a wear­able jig­saw puz­zle. The clothes are as slick and fu­tur­is­tic as the con­cept it­self.
