Lin Jia Xin
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 sustainability means to design something beautiful with minimal wastage. Sustainable fashion tests a designer's imagination and his ability to apply creative design techniques. Everyone should be concerned with sustainability and I hope that my work in this competition will raise awareness about this important topic. - Lin Jia Xin
