Some might think a damaged garment is at the end of its life, but for Yuki Fujisawa (@yuki__fujisawa) it’s just the beginning. “You can hide the damage with foil and give the material a sort of beautiful repair,” says the fashion designer. Yuki buys vintage fabrics both locally — in Japan — and abroad, reusing the fabrics to create one-of-a-kind garments. Before Yuki applies foil to the surface, she hand-dyes each piece. “I use the dye to create a fragile, brittle color, then I add a glinting light that changes in three dimensions.”
