Lisa Vaglund noticed something about music festivals and gatherings – there’s a lot of trash that comes after their hosting.
Recognizing how better such refuse could be utilized, Vaglund then went into reusing the used tents of the Roskilde Festival, purporting them in the making of stage costumes for Kissey Asplund, a fan-favorite of the event.
With the Roskilde Festival being one of the six major music festivals in Europe, the move had gained significant notoriety, paving the way for the best practices of “recycled fashion” sensibilities. It also brought attention to Vaglund, whose upcycled designs and creations are quire impressive by their own.
With garbage and refuse being a huge problem for music festivals, it has been reported that a large amount of money is typically allocated for clean up operations and such, with such operations taking as long as three months to complete.
Bothered by the amount of garbage produced from such occasions, Vaglund took on a two-fold drive in the recycling of used items, with one touching up on emphasizing the garbage problems which follow after music festivals, while developing new standards in design and creativity with such “raw materials.”
Working with Asplund, Vaglund was able to come up with unique couture costumes, one which effectively addresses the concerns of refuse generated from music festivals and such.
Though the appreciation of music is something which always had its share of followers, more followers for sustainable fashion and innovative recycling practices have risen due to the efforts of creative individuals like Vaglund.
