Eclectic Clothing is a remade fashion label that produces one off hand made clothes and jewellery from recycled fabrics and reclaimed fabrics. As textiles is my passion I take a colourful and textural approach to my work, Up cycling garments destined for landfill and reworking them into extravagant one off statements pieces.
