A little more from the designers, Sisko Sisko: REUSE, REPURPOSE & TRANSFORM
For sisters, Anna and Tarja waste is a beautiful thing. Something to be treasured, reimagined and transformed into delightful, imaginative creations.
Having recently moved to Sydney the pair have been constantly amazed at the amount of street waste they see. Most of the plastic waste they see is in perfectly fine and good working condition. A total waste in their eyes. With this, the girls decided to put the rubbish to good use and get creating and designing. Anna is a known local award-winning artist, painting bright, colourful, bold acrylic painting. And, Tarja is a performance artist and costume imaginer and designer.
Why Salvaged Fashion? Growing up, both Tarja and Anna that waste wasn’t an option. In their household, they needed to re-use it, mend it, or sell it. You can imagine how well that went down for the two fashion-obsessed teenagers. But that didn’t stop them. It just spurred them on to find creative, innovative ways to look like a million dollars on a shoe-string budget. Re-purposing and reimagining tired pieces of clothing finds from second-hand stores, or hand me downs from friends. So salvaging and repurposing is truly in their blood.
The sisters were ahead in the first instance, with regards to the wearable waste trend sweeping the world right now.
