Making her way up in the world of high fashion and one of the featured artists at last months prestigious Brighton Fashion Week, Daisy Harris-Burland, Aka, Dumpster Design, is setting her sights on big things! We last heard from Daisy in November 2011 where she hosted her own fantastic fashion event here in Portsmouth to show off her Couture and Apparel range. The night was a massive success and it was clear at that point Daisy was a force to be reckoned with.
Daisy has always been fascinated by how you can take things that might otherwise be thrown away and use them to create a thing of beauty. Her Dumpster Couture line does just that – whether made from table cloths, old train tickets or magazine covers, each piece is a work of art in itself.
“The Couture collection, inspired to tackle today’s throw-away mentality, is an eco-friendly approach to fashion with the result being unconventional and eye-catching one-offs that are quirky and lots of fun!”
Among her current collection Mayhem! features three bespoke dresses and a top-hat with tails for the gents, aptly constructed from our Bear Grylls Issue. All part of a wider collection which will comprise of 10 handcrafted pieces completed to coincide with, and celebrate, not only our own our first birthday in October this year, but Dumpster Design’s first birthday too . So with that in mind we set about a collaboration which has lead to amazing results.
The pieces will then be up for auction! So get bidding among yourselves and join us later in the year to see who will go home with each of these superb one-off collectables from Mayhem! magazine and Dumpster Design.
