Re­design­ing StyleYour

Focus of SWFL - - News - By K. Buchanan

If you can­not re­mem­ber when was the last time you went out shop­ping for clothes due to your limited bud­get, per­haps there is a so­lu­tion for you not to feel "out of fash­ion" any­more. Gar­nish­ing and re­mod­el­ing clothes is not only an in­ter­est­ing idea for you to pass your time with, but it can ac­tu­ally help you re­new your wardrobe with the min­i­mum amount of money pos­si­ble. Trans­form­ing clothes was al­ways con­nected with pro­vid­ing many im­por­tant func­tions for hu­man ac­tiv­ity. In ad­di­tion, trans­formed clothes are a byprod­uct of cre­ativ­ity and in­ge­nu­ity. Be­ing a stylish per­son is not easy. Thus, im­prov­ing your clothes' de­meanor as an act of con­scious fash­ion shift to­wards con­tem­po­rary re­fash­ion­ing of sec­ond­hand cloth­ing is ac­tu­ally rather pro­gres­sive. Ex­pe­ri­enc­ing the new character of that same old pair of jeans you have bought three years ago, can be the out­come of your ded­i­ca­tion to com­mit some time and re­new its old fit. A few cuts, at the right places, some foe crys­tals on its back pock­ets, a mono­gram on the thigh, a gold sparkling tex­tile marker across the waist, are some of the things that can help you trans­form your used cloth­ing and at­tract other peo­ples' at­ten­tion to your unique style il­lus­trated by your per­son­ally crafted fash­ion­able cre­ations. Ad­di­tion­ally, trans­form­ing old clothes, in any way, can be­come your new po­ten­tial value to another so­cial group. You might even dis­cover a hid­den tal­ent while in the process. A num­ber of peo­ple, who have be­gun re­mod­el­ing or gar­nish­ing their clothes due to need or as a new hobby, ex­pe­ri­enced tremen­dous suc­cess through their hand-made cre­ations and en­tered the fash­ion in­dus­try from the back­stage. The "one-piece" deal is a strong mar­ket­ing in­cen­tive when peo­ple need to con­vey through their clothes the feel­ing of be­ing dif­fer­ent; this need grows world­wide as glob­al­iza­tion tran­scends all known board­ers-es­pe­cially that of fash­ion. By sell­ing their cre­ations to a va­ri­ety of cloth­ing stores, or more re­cently on­line, th­ese clothes re-crafters rein­tro­duced an old idea, which be­came an in­stant ur­ban trend. Thus, next time you look frus­trated the re­sources you have avail­able in your closet, in­stead of wast­ing time and money in try­ing to fig­ure out what to wear for a night out, why not us­ing your imag­i­na­tion along with some of your other skills to ren­o­vate the pieces of your wardrobe that need a lit­tle sparkle again to shine? Apart from it be­ing a great idea to spend some qual­ity time alone, re­design­ing clothes can also open up new ca­reer hori­zons; at least it can amuse you and your friends. Trans­form­ing an old skirt into an apron or a pil­low case, gar­nish­ing your worn-out pants with sil­ver spray suit­able for tex­tile paint­ing, al­ter­ing the length of your old sim­ple black dress, or en­grav­ing your ini­tials on your leather bag may be some of the al­ter­ations you can per­form to your pos­ses­sion and en­ter a party with a redesigned style. The most im­por­tant thing is that you will be able to con­grat­u­late your­self when one will gaze your looks and ad­mire your stylish ap­pear­ance. Most im­por­tantly, you will know that no for­tune was spent on that "unique" piece of cloth­ing you are wear­ing.

Isn't that a sweat deal?
