After seeing thousands of global votes cast over four-week period, we are pleased to announce that the public have spoken. San Francisco-based Korean designer, Mimi Jeong, has been selected as favourite designer for her outstanding Redress Design Award 2018 submission and takes home the title of Redress Design Award 2018 ‘People’s Choice’ winner. Mimi made a lasting impression with her collection that up-cycles a variety of textiles including swatches and cut-and-sew waste, and was inspired by the works of Catalan architect, Antoni Gaudi. Using vibrant colour and the artist’s signature mosaic designs she creates a collection full of sculptural form.
Along with the accolade of People’s Choice, Mimi also wins a JUKI overlock sewing machine and a copy of Bloomsbury’s ‘The Handbook of Design for Sustainability’.
