Thrift Bill Grundy & Beatriz Maues

£25.00Price
  • Born of a love for pre-owned clothing, new exhibition Thrift uses a selection of images to celebrate resourcefulness over wastefulness. As part of a project by London-based photographer Will Grundy and stylist Beatriz Maués, Thrift champions vintage shopping over fast-fashion and promotes sustainability through the medium of a unique accompanying picture book.Boasting of an array of one-of-a-kind pieces sourced from vintage shops or loaned from archive collections, Thrift encourages the viewer to take a more informed approach when considering their personal consumption of fashion. It’s not trying to be another nostalgic nod to the past: instead, it stems “from a desire to do something that didn’t involve seasonal fashion. And to look at vintage outside of the ‘retro’ context it normally gets put in,” Grundy explains. Maués adds that the process was as raw as the publication’s content, stating that “it all happened organically, we did not have a plan. The first shoot came from a desire to collaborate and the idea of combining fashion, photography and travel seemed utopian which led to revisiting it from time to time.”
