Making the most of our possessions can be very satisfying but this does not fit with the current model of the fashion industry. I have been inspired to experiment with all kinds of waste in my previous collections -  finding renewed value in waste drives my work creatively forward. - Sung Yi Hsuan

EcoChic Design Award Collection

For her EcoChic Design Award application, Yi Hsuan is inspired to juxtapose discarded mass-produced, fast fashion items with the age-old technique of weaving to symbolise a spirit of awakening in a time of anxiety. She applies the design techniques of up-cycling and reconstruction to damaged industry textiles and secondhand clothing waste.
