The Encore collection is an upcycled collection, with limited pieces available from leftover materials pulled from previous seasons. At the studio, Cecilie and her team keep every scrap of fabric because it is too precious to throw away. Giving a new life to unused fabrics from earlier collections. The collection is another step towards integrity and consciousness at Cecilie Bahnsen. The Encore Collection is exclusively available on ceciliebahnsen.com
“Our fabrics are so precious, they need to be used. We have never thrown anything away. We have it all here in the studio in Copenhagen, every last scrap. There are so many wins about making these small collections. It gives the fabric a second life and means that we never have to send anything to landfill. And the pieces themselves feel even more precious because they are rare, we are making so few of them. It also gives work to our wonderful seamstresses. Because our collections are entirely handmade, the seamstresses work non-stop at busy times. With these collections, we provide them with work in the quiet months too. In general, the fashion industry is so manic. It can be hard when you are a new designer to keep hold of your values. You get swept along by the system, which is so careless and wasteful. We’re trying bit by bit to change how we work, to make it more balanced and real.”
