DIY inspiration from Fashion Month S14

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.

And last but not least - in the category of You Could DIY This But Probably Shouldn't . . .

The teddy bear hat and collar from Moschino.

Have you seen anything at a fashion week you plan to try?
