2017 Redress x Miele: The Consumer Care Challenge

The Redress x Miele Consumer Care Challenge took our 10 EcoChic Design Award 2017 finalists on an exploratory journey into the depths of secondhand clothing bins located around Hong Kong to discover the missed potential of discarded clothes. Our 10 finalists explored how fashion designers influence a garment’s sustainability, usability and recyclability at the design stage, and were challenged to apply strategies of care, maintenance and redesign to discarded garments to bring them back to life into a show-stopping outfit in just 4 hours. They worked collaboratively with their own ‘muses’, Kate Tsui and Kayla Wong, demonstrating that with the help of Miele quality appliances, considered clothing care and creativity can keep clothes in the fashion loop for longer. The most outstanding outfit was awarded to team A, consisting of Candle Ray TorreverdeAyako YoshidaKate MorrisJoëlle van de Pavert and Claire Dartigues.

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.
