DejaVu Design has been creating and making clothing (both upcycled and virgin material) for over a decade.
The process is always evolving. Laura Levitt has always had a fascination with textiles / fabrics / sewing / color / and personal style.
Learning about textiles: how they “behave”, how they wash, how they wear, and always gathering knowledge on how to create and develop better garments.
As always, upcycled vests, jackets, sweaters and T-shirts are re-invented/ re-worked and given a second, upgraded life .
We discovered that a lot of customers didn't realize that we create our graphics in house, and that DejaVu Design prints, presses and sews in house.
Each garment with our DejaVu graphics is one of a kind.
VIRGIN MATERIAL GARMENTS
When deciding to expand into designing and making new garments, the motivation was to create things that weren’t being made or easy to find:
- Dresses with deep, comfortable pockets.
- Interesting necklines and hemlines.
- Comfortable waistbands
- Quality fabrics
- Serged seams
- Timeless designs
The Slow Fashion Movement focuses on buying less: buying better
What is Slow Fashion?
Slow fashion is the movement of designing, creating, and buying garments for quality and longevity. It encourages slower production schedules, fair wages, lower carbon footprints. Slow fashion represents all things “eco,” “ethical," and “green” in one unified movement.
It encourages us to buy less garments of a higher quality
It also puts emphasis on the art of clothes making and celebrates the skills of the craftspeople who make them.
Slow fashion is about quality instead of quantity—garments that can last years or even a lifetime. Slow fashion is sustainable and doesn't view products as disposable. Slow fashion is ethical and looks at the connections between things—raw materials, the environment, human labor, etc.
