It's Recycadelic!

During one of my regular visits to the Western Fair Farmers' Market, I discovered Celeste (in the photo above).  She operates a booth on the second floor in which she sells her clothing designs under the moniker "Recyadelic".  Celeste takes apart second-hand clothing and re-fashions the fabric into one-of-a-kind designs.  Sweaters become skirts, pants become jackets.   The first thing I noticed was her dress, which is one of her own creations, incorporating pieces from different fabric into a funky, mult-patterned outfit.  

On a more recent visit, Celeste was wearing this wonderful print dress, accessorized with arm warmers and a wide knit "belt", all of her own design.  She sells the belts in her booth, and as they are made from knit fabrics, they fit snugly but have some stretch .  Behind her are some of her other creations.   I love when people have fun with posing when I ask to take their photo, and it was obvious that Celeste doesn't take herself too seriously - she's a delight to chat with!

You can find Celeste, and her latest creations at her booth in the Western Fair Farmers' Market on Saturdays, from 8 am - 3 pm.
