To celebrate Chinese New Year in a new and environmentally conscious way, Nan Fung Place have collaborated with Redress this year, in their search to find the perfect sustainable designer to up-cycle unused clothing into Lai See packets - bringing new life to unused textiles. First cycle winner of the Redress Design Award, Janko Lam was selected for the project, and matched with several boxes of unused red dresses that had been waiting for just the right project! In her signature style, Janko transformed the dresses into beautifully crafted Lai See packets, which feature a mandarin collar based on the traditional qípáo dress. Inspired by the passion for cultural heritage and oriental aesthetics, Janko’s creations are not only eye-catching, as her functional design ensures that customers can re-use the Lai See packets post the new year in a variety of ways, including to store mobile devices, name cards, cosmetics or stationery.
The limited-edition Nan Fung Place Mandarin Collar Red Packets are available while stock lasts for redemption between 16th Jan and 4th Feb 2019.
