The EcoChic Design Award 2017 Semi-FINALIST
Burachat Tangjitaree is a semi-finalist of the EcoChic Design Award 2017. She is currently studying fashion design at the Bunka Fashion Academy, Thailand.
In this world of fast fashion, we have lost our sense of value in what we buy. I would like to show people the beauty and value beneath the surface of our clothes - the memories embedded in each flaw and stitch. Just like an artist’s brush stroke contains meaning and can tell a story, in my creations I want to express the uniqueness of each piece through its fabric and make people think twice about secondhand clothing. - Burachat Tangjitaree
EcoChic Design Award Collection
For her EcoChic Design Award application, Burachat applies the up-cycling and reconstruction techniques to transform cut-and-sew waste and secondhand garments. Her inspiration comes from the fabrics themselves and a desire to inspire others to see greater value in the clothing they buy.
