The EcoChic Design Award 2014/15 Finalist
Cher is currently working on her own studio, The Share Studio, which offers tailoring for private clients that she established in Hong Kong 2014. She is a Fashion Design graduate from Middlesex University, London and has interned for numerous Hong Kong fashion brands and designers, including Barney Cheng and High Fashion International.
Cher was inspired by the celebrated Chinese author Eileen Chang’s legendary literature and Chang’s personal fashion style for her The EcoChic Design Award 2014/15 collection. Cher used the sustainable design techniques of zero-waste, up-cycling and reconstruction onto her textile waste source, comprising end-of-roll recycled cotton and damaged textiles, which she sourced from fabric suppliers in Hong Kong, and secondhand textiles and clothes. The result was a collection featuring crocheted garments overlaying key pieces.
I’ve realised my lifestyle greatly affects the environment and as a result I want to be a sustainable fashion designer to help to protect it. Through my designs, I hope to show the world my sustainable ideas and work to lower the negative environmental impacts of the fashion industry - Cher Chan
