DIY fashion is something that I have been interested in for as long as I can remember. In creating my Capstone project I wanted to find a way to combine my love for DIY fashion with the things I enjoy learning about the most. This resulted in the creation of Mended, a magazine that explores Do-It-Yourself fashion through the lenses of sustainability and community building. The magazine is inspired by the content and aesthetic of vintage punk and feminist zines. Mended explores how DIY fashion is not only a great hobby but it can also be the sustainable solution the fashion industry is looking for. This is done by diving into the community and culture behind different types of DIY fashion. Written and designed by Jessica Haycock, this project includes articles, interviews and photo shoots on topics such as overconsumption, craft communities, subcultures and much more. This magazine educates readers on the importance of sustainable fashion while giving a plethora of inspiration on how to use DIY fashion to achieve sustainability in everyday life.
