MAKE – RETURE WORKSHOP WITH DESIGNBLENDER
Thursday, September 23rd 3.30-5.00pm
Glamcycle Your Jewels
Learn how to upcycle your own statement jewellery piece with Alexa Papavasileiou and her team. Get creative in reworking vintage chains, pearls and waste fabrics. Bring along an old piece of jewellery that holds significance, maybe a childhood charm or your mother’s single earring, and give it a glamorous rebirth the DesignBlender way.
Alexa Papavasileiou trained with Giambattista Valli, Lanvin and Chloe before working as a fashion designer and consulting in textiles and art direction at Erdem and Liberty London. Passionate about sustainability and empowering women, Alexa launched the DesignBlender atelier in spring 2020.
DesignBlender playfully intermixes concepts of new and old with a clear objective: to extend the lifecycle of a product and offer a luxury experience. Every piece is made in London following a design process centred on the use of repurposed, vintage and certified sustainable materials.
RETURE is a digital platform offering both a bespoke upcycling service, enabling clients to connect and collaborate with world-class designers to revive their preloved garments, and an online boutique where shoppers can buy upcycled fashion and accessories from cutting-edge, sustainably driven design talents.
