An ode to second-hand style in Goa, by Neesha Tulsi Champaneria and Marie Schuller.
Most fashion stories don’t feature carabiners galore, Indian flags worn as makeshift tops or upcycled high heels created from Vibram running shoes but this isn’t just any editorial.
Taken from HUNGER’s Future Issue, stylist (and DIY diva) Neesha Tulsi Champaneria travelled to Goa with photographer Marie Schuller for a “no new clothes” shoot featuring secondhand garments and fabrics from the local markets, as well as the odd item from her grandmother’s house…
