Here are nearly 30 DIY ideas from London, Milan and Paris fashion week spring 2014 collections plus a few stragglers from New York Fashion Week.
Add fur to any accessory, a la Fendi. Or take any large metal object and make it into a belt buckle.
Embellish a cuff with oversized rhinestones or make a perforated clutch.
Add rhinestones to a clear vinyl poncho like Burberry. Or turn your old phone cord into a necklace like Kenzo.
Supersize some earrings.
Make your iron-on transfer sweatshirt hip with sharks or botanical diagrams like Christopher Kane.
Add scattered rhinestones or brooches to a dress or coat like Burberry. Add one bright feather like Thomas Tait.
Paint your wedges with stripes.
Make a skirt out of shiny vinyl like Dolce and Gabbana. (Or almost anything out of gold coins.) Use enormous beads like Armani.
Make a toucan clutch. Add two huge beads to a collar necklace like Chanel.
Make a mesh cuff (I'm on this one already.)
Try an asymmetrical cape. Paint a golden shoe on your plain black clutch.
Make a clutch with a message.
Use that spare clear vinyl to create a hat like Hussein Chalayan. Add fringe to your denim.
Double wrap a chain and add a single pendant like Valentino. Forget the fanny pack. Attach your clutch to your forearm like Undercover.
Make furry rings like Fendi. Or a fabulous necklace like Vivienne Westwood.
Or make a kitty ring.
