Ecouterre asked its readers to wow us with their most dazzling recycled-denim masterpieces, and boy did they come through in droves! We waded through hundreds of submissions to whittle down the selection to 45 of our absolute favorites, from a snazzy vest for a pooch to crisply constructed haute couture. Roll on over to the contest site to peruse all the finalists, as well as vote for the ones you love best.
Ecouterre is a website devoted to the future of clothing and textile design. We're dedicated to showcasing and supporting designers who not only contemplate cut, form, and drape, but also a garment's social and environmental impact, from the cultivation of its fibers to its use and disposal.
