Upcycle Idol: Lu Flux

Upcycle Idol: Lu Flux

Lu Flux

A favourite of ours is champion upcycler Lu Flux , who weaves stories with her hands . One glance at her collections and I’m immediately drawn into their quirky charm and doll-like eccentricity that seems to come from another time. A fashion fairytale of mish mash patterns and bold colours .

Lu Flux Lookbook 1Based in East London, she specialises in using traditional techniques such as patchwork, knitting and pleating, but always incorporating a modern twist.

Having shown at London Fashion Week’s Estethica section, (exclusively for sustainable labels), Lu went on to win the Ethical Fashion Forum’s Innovation Award, celebrating her offbeat aesthetic and dedication to eco fashion.
