Your New Handbag Chic and
Your new handbag - chic and green
The garage, the grocery story, the pharmacy, the hardware store, your grandparents' attic - these might not be the first places you think of when you need new fashion accessories. But these are some of the places where young designers form the Cracow School of Art and Fashion Design have found materials to create their unique handbags.
The final results are playful and original but also
elegant, smart and attractive. All were crafted from things
such as vinyl records, cans, and soup boxes. These old
objects which seem useless and whose only destination is a
trash bin have been transformed into stylish pieces. The
designed handbags are not only an excellent demonstration of
students' creativity but they also show their concern for
the environment and interest in recycling. With the designs
students demonstrated that nothing is too useless to be
transformed into high fashion and that we don't need to pay
big money to have accessories that are original and stand
out in a crowd.
After the workshops the next step was to show the handbags to the public. Together with the National Museum, Cracow School of Art and Fashion Design, has presented a combined Runway Show/ Art Exhibition in one of the museum's halls, gathering numerous audience.
