Instant Sewing @ Instant Coffee
Sunday July 22
441 Powell Street
4 pm for upcycling
8 pm performance
AGENTE COSTURA (Portuguese double standard: sewing agent/we sew) is a Brazilian upcycling studio that will be in residence for a day at Instant Coffee Studio. We will be selling Brazilian Vintage, upcycling on the spot, and presenting a performance piece that brings together fashion, music and dance. The sewing machine acts as a percussion instrument, and the clothes are transformed during the show.
Come along just to have a look, or join in the transformation! It’s easy:
1. Go through your wardrobe and pick out the garments that have been sitting there for a long time.
2. Bring them in and explain what it is that stops you from wearing them.
3. Watch as your garment is reconstructed and adapted to your desires!
