'Project Recycle' at Beyond Retro with Supersweet!

Posted on November 02 2009

From a young age, yours truly, has been quite obsessed with fashion magazines in all their over the top, out of this world, trash-glam glory! Naturally, I jumped at the chance for Beyond Retro to be involved in turning the inspirational, cultural transcripts of 'Supersweet' magazine into divine works of fashion-inspired art! And display them right here at Beyond Retro's Cheshire Street store! You are invited to help turn the 1000 + back issues of 'Supersweet' magazine into a collage or exciting 3-D sculpture, by donning your D.I.Y design head and coming up with an imaginative way to wear your fashion dreams, quite literally, on your sleeves! Old magazine cut-outs, clever paper sculpting, a pair of scissors and unlimited imagination means design history may simply be in the making! Come up with a new brand of shoe silhouette, a rock'n'roll dress pattern or a head turning hat! Come February (2010, yikes!), our bi-monthly East End Lights project will illuminate the creative, outrageous and downright beautiful ideas of fashion's future protagonists, by displaying the most original winning entries within its statement exterior lightboxes and around our Cheshire Street store. So pick up a few back copies (maximum of 7) of 'Supersweet' from one of Beyond Retro's London stores and get creative! Magazines in store now! Stashed under the counter for safe-keeping, so be sure to ask the floor staff! Closing date for completed entries is February 2010.
