a bespoke project with water soluble fabric

The concept behind the collection that Eunjoo Lee from IED Milano Master course in Fashion Design created at the end of the workshop Bespoke was: also miners and mechanics can be fashionable by mixing the right materials with high quality bespoke techniques.
