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.

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.
