Mesocyclone Fashion Show: The Re-fa-shen Collection

At this month's Design Hive Market, Fashion with Impact presented Mesocyclone "celebrate the awakening of Spring through green fashion. Featuring the re-fa-shen collection". Many of the designers use repurposed fabrics, either from vintage clothing or other salvaged fabrics. Recycling fabrics to give them new life and revitalized look.

Contributing Designers included: Amanda Antunes of d. aMa Design, Tricia Wilde, Lyric Couture, Photosynthesis, Shannon Glasheen, Jillian Gorski (accessories) and B;aires (accessories).

I love the richness of the bluegray babydoll dress.

The red reconstructed sweater is my favorite piece of the show. It has a unique shape, innovative design and great texture. Plus, it is a wonderful way to repurpose a sweater!!

While I'm not typically fond of plaid, this pristinely tailored dress has a playful use of the plaid at the bust with fun delicate straps at the shoulders and back giving an unexpected pairing with plaid.

The white shirt has incredible architectural qualities to it which I enjoy.

Be sure to check out these eco-conscious, sustainability savvy designers!
