AYPE WORKS was created with the idea of redesigning, reimagining and reworking old and used garments into new one-of-a-kind wearable pieces. The focus is to use discarded goods which would have otherwise ended up in landfills.
The garments are all collected from second-hand vintage warehouses. Coming from a family that has been in the second-hand business for over 20 years, the designer, Astrid Y. Perez Escoto sees firsthand what is discarded as old and used.
** Due to the nature of the materials collected, no two pieces are ever the same. This allows for one-of-a-kind goods.
