FASHION

Tighe-Mearns-Smith specialise in sustainable fashion. We must respect the universe if we are to allow the arts to continue. Tighe-Mearns-Smith see that the art industry sets itself at a fast pace of production which is both unhealthy for the artist and damaging for the environment, vast amounts of material are produced and thrown away. To tackle this is of the utmost importance to Tighe-Mearns-Smith. Tighe-Mearns-Smith treat art as a sustainable outlet. Tighe-Mearns-Smith achieve this through the utilisation of second hand materials and unwanted objects. Through the promotion of employing products that have been abjured, out of use or going to waste they find a balance of creating new without the additional pressure for the continual manufacturing of products and supplies. Resourcefulness is key in their design. Appropriating unwanted products and wasted materials enables Tighe-Mearns-Smith's work to become a vessel for positive environmental impact.
