Momo Wang

Momo Wang is a designer whose collection The Third Hand is made up of 12 upcycled outfits made from second-hand clothing that she found at markets in her hometown of Jinzhou in China. the lookbook was photographed by Shuwei Liu in and around a little rural village in the mountains near her hometown.

“The basic idea is to do what I can to refresh, renew, re-animate precious second-hand materials, and eventually deliver the beauty in them by my realization, and eventually have more and more people doing the same, or at least thinking similarly. A French philosopher once talked about third hand, Jacques Derrida. I like hands.” *

    Such beautiful photos! I just love the atmosphere and also the idea with upcycled materials. It makes so much sense to use old materials and bring them back to life again!
    Thanks for sharing!
