Brigid KO Designs

BY BRIGID OESTERLING
@ VOL 13 ON NOV 11, 2014

Designer Brigid Oesterling of BrigidKO creates couture costuming and clothing made primarily from innertubes and recycled materials. Her focus has been to use innertubes from cars, motorcycles and bicycles. Not your typical recycled-wear, the recycled rubber material often has a leather look which the designer masterfully balances with other materials, often masking the identity of the innertube. Her work is innovative and, these unique pieces are both delicate and bold.
