Just as I am beginning the first of my graffiti dresses, I happened upon this gorgeous little project, Left to be Found.  The website describes the project thus:

“Left to Be Found is an exploration into little magic interactions of finding and gifting garments within an urban environment.  The project aims to encourage altruism through the process of giving; and to strengthen the connections between ourselves, the objects surrounding us and others.  The objective of this project is to address the throw-away culture problem in a non-preaching, playful way.

“For this, garments are left in public spaces within urban environments to be found by passers-by.

“The garments made for the project are designed to uncover with time little magic bits, thus enabling a deeper relationship between garment and wearer, one of discovery and surprise.  These range from a little trim of colour hidden inside a French seam which unveils after prolonged wear and tear, to a detachable garment nested within the original found garment, ready to be left behind to continue the process of gifting.”
