My next university project is about diversity in fashion (it’s for a competition called DiversityNOW!). Now, I could go for the obvious and design for plus size, but as I’m thinner than some models and the current media message seems to be that anyone under a size 14 is a bad influence, I’ve no sympathy for plus size people.
So I thought I’d do a subculture I know something about: people who don’t buy clothes. The thing is that while I’m in this group, I don’t know what it’s called or about the lifestyles and ways of thinking of other people who are in it. There is Dame Vivienne Westwood of course, but that’s just one.
So I need your help. Do you simply not buy clothes? Do you make all your own? Do you just buy certain things like underwear? Do you up-cycle? Perhaps more helpfully, do you have a blog about this? And why do you have your rules and choose to make your own?
I’ll have to run this idea past my tutor, but I think if I have a name for this “sub-culture” I’ll be able to do it. : )

We started the module today. It seems subcultures don’t count; the competition is to do with body image. Thank you all for your help anyway. : )
