I developed a passion for sustainable fashion during my years living on an organic farm while studying fashion in Düsseldorf. As a result of experiencing the contrast between city life and natural organic living, I realised how much waste we produce as a society. Besides being creative and developing fashion, I love to travel get to know new cultures and learn from other human beings. - Sophia Heussner

For her EcoChic Design Award collection, Sophia was inspired by the countryside and nature and by the LOHAS lifestyle. She used raw natural fabrics such as hemp along with vintage clothes and recycled textiles to provide strength and long life to this eco collection.
