You all might be thinking. What is this?,How?curious to know. Adding to its eco-forward philosophy, local design house ZinZin - pronounced zaza - launched the eco-friendly cause during its participation at Dubai Shopping Festival?s (DSF) first-ever sustainable Market OTB (Outside The Box). Creativity has no bounds. These designers need to put a twist on your typical piece of denim Less a free giveaway, and more an environment-conscious initiative, rags are to become riches over the next few weeks, during a sustainable fashion project which will help plant more of the drought-tolerant, evergreen Ghaf trees in the region. The participating designers are allowed to pick one piece of denim from the tired looking collection and have until February 13 to come up with a quirky design, which is to be showcased at ZinZin?s only branch in Dubai. But in true ZinZin style, there?s a slight twist, with only recyclable materials allowed in the mix.

    It is good to see how young people act in order to save our planet! I think it is a great idea by this way by redesigning old clothes. I would love to take part in this action if I was in Dubai!
