UPCYCLED

Brides who wear these one-off gems are pretty unique searching online for something  different, playful, daring, sweet and sexy all at once.  You'll be surprised to find salvage chic surprisingly affordable.  The fabrics and trims have been rescued and any additions are usually inexpensive.  Construction is more free than say a couture dress that requires hours of painstaking detail in the finest materials.  Raw edges, as well as an overall tattered appearance are not only acceptable on upcycled garments but sometimes an integral part of the design.  As one designer put it, "We embrace the tattered and disheveled quality of vintage materials and try to imbue each garment with the spirit of using what is already out in the world. If you're cool with unfinished, raw edges, asymmetry, and wearing fabrics that possess a unique history, then we're cool with you! We fit best with Shabby-Chic, Undone Romantic, Outdoor, Whimsical, Country, Avant Garde wedding and everyday aesthetics. 
The corset above and directly below was salvaged from a long line lace bra with crocheted lace added.  Ditto the laces on the dress below--skirts from a rescued slip are layered asymmetrically . . . . .
