To me sustainable fashion means creating and maintaining a system which can be supported indefinitely in terms of human impact on the environment and social responsibility. I want to be a sustainable fashion designer to raise awareness toward our environment and show consumers that we can make beautiful clothes using textile waste. - Sarah Devina Susanto
