Gong Jia Qi
The EcoChic Design Award 2012 China Finalist
Xinyan is currently studying Fashion Design at the Beijing Institute of Fashion Technology in China.
For her The EcoChic Design Award 2013 Collection, Xinyan combined up-cycling and reconstruction design techniques to create new outfits using cut-and-sew waste from her own production and secondhand garments sourced from her friends.
I think sustainable fashion is something more than just the expression f beauty or satisfying consumer demands. It transforms design into a strategy that can help solve environmental problems. - Gong Jia Qi
