The 180 Project

Upsidedowncycling / The 180 Project

The aim is to create fashion using a basic set of criteria that are aligned to The School of Upsidedowncyclings view that we already have enough of everything and why cant we just play with that for a bit.

 

- We only use abandoned or second hand clothing.

 

- Our brand is called “180” which is an expression of making an about turn or a complete change of direction. Anyone using this ethic is welcome to join in and to use the logo. Its not about making money, its about making value.

 

- To look at each item of clothing we encounter with a completely open mind and let it suggest a new life as something else wether that may be to turn it upside down or back to front.

 

- To put energy and a little fun into the way we look and so into the way we live without that being at the expense of someone or something else.
