Curtains that once dressed windows of British royal residences will now dress people
STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:
Good morning, I'm Steve Inskeep. Curtains that once dressed the windows of British royal residences will now dress people. King Charles commissioned some fashion students to repurpose old curtains from Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle. Some are from the 1950s when Queen Elizabeth was young. They're now jackets and kimonos that look new. Photos show garments that look stylish while still patterned like curtains, and they are recycled items that will be auctioned for charity.
