SAVESTUDIOS

The Savestudios brings the models back in time wearing the same fashion but made from recycled materials from the future. We hope to inspire change in people—reminding them how our environment was back then, and that it can still be saved.

SODIUM’S ONE TO WATCH presents SAVESTUDIOS by Sarisa | Fashion Film by @ken.jongtus

Savestudios was established in 2018 by Sarisa to reduce the environmental impact of fast fashion practices. Fast fashion contributes to a wide variety of problems. Cheap labor, poor building quality and the overproduction of clothes create a negative impact on people’s lives and the environment. For example, a building collapsed in Bangladesh due to the low quality materials and substandard construction practices.

In other countries, the dumping of wastewater from overproduction in clothing factories pollutes local waters. From a business perspective, marketing and production demands from corporate offices require these factories to produce millions of tonnes of clothes. Every year, areas the size of Olympics pools are filled with unsold and unused clothes.

The delivery and unloading of surplus second-hand clothes to developing countries throughout Asia create a very difficult waste problem. Imagine 40,000,000 tonnes of clothes sent to areas that don’t have modern waste management systems. The clothes become piles of unused materials slowly decomposing in the sun. The transformation of high-quality materials/clothes reborn into artistic designs is the concept behind Savestudios. Every design is created artfully through expert selection of materials and the eye of design resulting in a one of a kind look. Each outfit represents fine art and a unique approach to ready-to-wear.

Through innovative combination of beautiful materials from different items of clothing and redesigned rhinestones and studs from electronic waste, each piece’s character is aligned to the proportions of the human body. The reconstruction and rebirth of handcrafted designs from the imagination of the designer enable a wearer to both make a unique fashion statement and promote the protection of the environment.

About Inspiration SS 2020

The first Earth Day was celebrated in the year 1970. A lot of people were not aware of or did not care about environmental problems at that time. Meanwhile, the disco style dominated the fashion scene. The people then had just started to see the possible effects of human and natural disasters. 

Nowadays, we realize and experience these effects every single day, such as tornadoes, volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, tsunamis, drought, forest fires, avalanches, global warming, water and air pollution, and tons of wastes. In order to survive, people need clean air, clean water, food, and shelter. These are becoming difficult to attain due to the environmental problems we now experience.

We hope to inspire change in people—reminding them how our environment was back then, and that it can still be saved. The Savestudios brings the models back in time wearing the same fashion but made from recycled materials from the future. “
