The EcoChic Design Award 2017 Semi-FINALIST
Jarubhorn Brahmaphalin is a semi-finalist of the EcoChic Design Award 2017. She is currently studying Fine and Applied Arts in Fashion and Textile Design at Bangkok University, Thailand.
Sustainable fashion should be made to last; but for me, it is also an opportunity to tell stories through unique design. As an avid scuba diver, I have seen the damage caused by our changing climate and understand first hand how important nature is. We should do everything we can to save our planet. - Jarubhorn Brahmaphalin
EcoChic Design Award Collection
For her EcoChic Design Award application, Jarubhorn takes inspiration from the bleached corals in Southern Thailand. She applies the design techniques of zero-waste and up-cycling to "mawata" silk waste, to create soft, asymmetric silhouettes, reminiscent of traditional Thai sailor outfits.
