"Expose your inner designer:

Oxfam contest

If you're jonesin to gage your inner design talent then you might want to check out this design contest thingy. As a means to shed light to the recycling of second-hand clothing into something new and eco-chic, Oxfam recently launched Oxfam DIY - a new online fashion resource designed to encourage "redesigning" what's old into something up-to-date and uber-fabulous. Divine British stylist Mrs Jones (aka Fee Doran who has styled The Killers and put Kylie into that white-hooded catsuit for "Can't Get You Out of My Head") styled a photoshoot made up of looks created entirely using garments from Oxfam's recycling facility, Wastesaver.

This time they've teamed up again on a unique fashion design competition. Design and create a customized garment from old clothing or recycled materials, and upload a pic of it to the Flickr stream (but run, don't walk, entries close July 15th at The top five designs chosen by Mrs Jones will be featured on the Oxfam DIY site, and the lucky winner will have a one-of-a-kind item designed for them by Mrs Jones."
