As part of our efforts to raise awareness on the issue of textile waste, we enlisted the help of Hong Kong Baptist University students to design and build a sculpture which was exhibited from July 2015 in K11 mall, Hong Kong. The aim of the exhibition was to inspire shoppers about the role they can play in creating a more sustainable fashion industry by re-thinking the way they buy, care and dispose of their clothes. Read more about the project here and watch the exhibit come to life here.
On 13 May 2015 Redress held a media launch event for the EcoChic Design Award 2015/16 competition cycle alongside their Fifth Year Anniversary Exhibition at Hysan Place in Hong Kong. Read the press release and access more resources in the media kit here.
