WOK’s designers: ANDREA CREWS

 

 

“Camp sees everything in quotation marks. It’s not a lamp, but a “lamp”; not a woman, but a “woman.” To perceive Camp in objects and persons is to understand Being-as-Playing-a-Role. It is the farthest extension, in sensibility, of the metaphor of life as theater”

(Susan Sontag, “Notes on Camp”)

 

Andrea Crews’s project bases on the use and the reinterpretation of the second-hand garment, it is a social, economic and ethical choice. Andrea Crews transforms tons of secondhand clothes into unique pieces, chic and trendy. Within the workshop, around the heap of clothes, the raw material, Andrea Crews settles sewing machines and creates experimental collections.Beyond a simple craze for the vintage, the concept ” post-vintage ” of Andrea Crews is more than ever of current events. More than a simple appropriation, she proposes a reinterpretation.
