Our finalists explored the importance of a symbiotic partnership between designers and manufacturers and got hands-on experience of how sustainable practices can be applied along the entire supply chain, before being challenged to come up with strategies to bring the manufacturing process closer to designers thinking to minimise the impact of new garments.

2017 Redress x Cathay Pacific: The Uniform Reconstruction Challenge

The Redress x Cathay Pacific Reconstruction Challenge took our 10 EcoChic Design Award finalists on a journey to explore solutions for the redirection of corporate uniform waste back into use. As emerging fashion designers, they are in a unique position to bring new ideas and creativity to a vast ongoing waste issue. Working in groups of two, finalists had three hours to develop an idea to reconstruct Cathay Pacific’s retired uniforms back into a new product. The resulting proto-types, which were made with mass production by local social enterprise in mind, were presented to a panel of judges who decided which team had shown the most promising solution to incorporate the airline’s valuable textile resources back into use. The winners were Kate Morris and Ayako Yoshida with their stylish travel pouch incorporating original features of pocket and gold lapels to enable easier production.

DIY workshop with Redress & PizzaExpress. Redesign your T-shirt!

A new Greenpeace survey on the shopping habits of people across Europe and Asia, finds that regularly buying too many clothes, shoes, bags and accessories has become an international phenomenon – in fact the average person now buys 60 per cent more items of clothing and keeps them for about half as long as they did just 15 years ago. This is especially striking in China and Hong Kong with up to half of consumers buying more clothes than they need and use, with social media and online shopping fueling much of this shopping craze. In June 2017, Redress and PizzaExpress joined forces for an exclusive DIY workshop hosted at the K11 restaurant, a haven of calm among the hustle and bustle of one of Hong Kong’s busiest shopping areas, inspiring participants to transform their out of use T-shirts into a fabulous, summer ready designs! From embellishing, patching to cutting techniques (and a little online inspiration), together we discovered all sorts of creative ways to breathe new life into clothing, and lighten the environmental impact of our wardrobes along the way.

PANEL DISCUSSION AT HKTDC CENTRESTAGE 2016

A more sustainable fashion system; is digital disruption fuelling positive change?

The digital space is disrupting the way the fashion supply chain – which contributes to the second biggest polluting industry in the world – communicates. Some players are now using digital technology to their advantage as they build more sustainable businesses whilst reducing waste, as they seek to cut out traditional road blocks that lead to clunky and often complex supply chains, and waste in the production process.

PANEL DISCUSSION AT HKTDC HONG KONG FASHION WEEK 2016

Can circular business models be a solution for the fashion industry’s textile waste?

The fashion and textile industry is the second most polluting industry in the world behind oil. As the depletion of natural resources prevails and the cost of virgin materials continues to show volatility, the current linear model of ‘take, make, waste’ is no longer a sustainable business option for the fashion industry to remain competitive.
