Riga Art and Media school qualification work (2017.).
Recycling collection “Tomorrow” is created with the idea of the future of "our" tomorrow. I have given second breath for clothes that have long gone out of fashion – wide pants and clothing like that no longer have to hide in the shadows of the dark corners of the wardrobe. Collection’s clothing material choice successfully reflects the style requirements. Different denim fabrics have worked well with each other, and function positively both technically and visually. The collection fits perfectly in contemporary fashion with its own character and inexhaustibility. It perfectly reflects our age, its an outfit with a life story, with its own mystery. An exclusive but functional product designed to inspire people to recycle.

Costumes are easily combinable of athletic style to classical and more.
