'Paul Castro’s ‘AMASSMENT’ collection was an eclectic and daring throwback to early noughties street wear. Castro reconstructed urban classics like baggy drop-waist denim jeans, gypsy skirts and cropped shirts by literally sewing multiples of the same garments together haphazardly. A billowing white dress composed of a patchwork of white cotton shirts, their original tags still attached and trailing on the floor, was a powerful and ironic statement on ‘fast fashion’ and over-consumption in an industry that faces the ever-looming threat of fashion conglomerates daily'.
