World 110, Exploration A

Female fashion model holding a long flowing garment.

In World 110, new fabrics can no longer be produced. Most natural resources have been completely depleted and auto-machineries are destroyed. This directs humanity to go artisanal and up-cycle their used garments to fit to their body. People then have garments made to fit their body shape and size and the idea of one piece/set having an added value.

Does this World remind you of something?

I am keen to hear about any historical or contemporary real-world examples – whether individual practices, subcultures or mainstream activities – that this fiction brings to mind.

Please share any such examples using this form. Thank you!
