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 Flickr.com/groups/OxfamDIY (but run, don't walk, entries close July 15th at Oxfam.org.uk/DIY). 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."
