As a society we are voracious consumers, often spending more than we actually have. Advertising agencies tap into our insecurities and sell us vacuous dreams. We are bombarded with banal, superficial images and we are somehow brainwashed into believing that our lives will be glorious if we buy into that designer brand.
"Don't Label Me" Cuff was created to address this nonsense.
Retro Country Road tie. Purchased for 50 cents at a thrift store.
Tie cut and hemming about to begin.
Retro labels retrieved from multiple ties. Carefully unpicked with a seam ripper.
Designer ribbon to provide a border for the cuff.
Trial and error will decide the best configuration.
Labels sewn with green thread in an ad hoc manner.
Which vintage/retro button should I choose?
Ahhh the shiny black multi faceted button will make this glam and edgy.
Ready to wear
