W ramach projektu „Zawsze pod ręką. Torebki damskie od średniowiecza do współczesności” Muzeum Narodowe w Krakowie oraz Szkoła Artystycznego Projektowania Ubioru nawiązały współpracę, której efektem był pokaz recyklingowych torebek zaprojektowanych przez studentki SAPU. Miał on miejsce pod koniec października w Arsenale Muzeum Książąt Czartoryskich. Modelki prezentujące zaskakujące, kolorowe i odważnie zrealizowane torebki dla równowagi miały na sobie proste czarne sukienki projektu Anety Rapacz i Moniki Heter.

Częścią projektu były także warsztaty renowacji  torebek zorganizowane i poprowadzone przez  Magdalenę Pędziałek. Torebki z pokazu jak i z warsztatów można było oglądać na wystawie w Galerii BB, przy ulicy Garbarskiej w Krakowie.

The garage, the grocery story, the pharmacy, the hardware store, your grandparents’ attic – these might not be the first places you think of when you need new fashion accessories. But these are some of the places where young designers form the Cracow School of Art and Fashion Design (www.ksa.edu.pl) have found materials to create their unique handbags.

The final results are playful and original but also elegant, smart and attractive. All were crafted from things such as vinyl records, cans, and soup boxes. These old objects which seem useless and whose only destination is a trash bin have been transformed into stylish pieces. The designed handbags are not only an excellent demonstration of students’ creativity but they also show their concern for the environment and interest in recycling. With the designs students demonstrated that nothing is too useless to be transformed into high fashion and that we don’t need to pay big money to have accessories that are original and stand out in a crowd.

“Eco – creativity” was part of a workshop in which students took part to learn how to re-purpose used objects and materials, and how to create new patterns from old photos, plastic bags, newspapers and to make new shapes inspired by what they have found. The design of the handbags showcased the imaginative talent of the students. Who would have thought, after all, that a metal screw could be the inspiration for a futuristic industrial look, or plastic tape for a more avant-garde look, or black and while plastic bags for a romantic style? The workshops focused students’ natural talent and bolstered their confidence, while encouraging them to take more creative risks.

After the workshops the next step was to show the handbags to the public. Together with the National Museum, Cracow School of Art and Fashion Design, has presented a combined Runway Show/ Art Exhibition in one of the museum’s halls, gathering numerous audience.
