The EcoChic Design Award 2015/16 Hong Kong’s Best recognition
Esther is currently working as a fashion design assistant for a bridal wear design house in Hong Kong. She has a Fashion Design degree from Nottingham Trent University in the UK.
For her collection, Esther was inspired by the Chinese heroine Mulan, who was known for being strong on the outside but with a gentle heart. She used the up-cycling design technique using surplus textiles and clothing labels, sourced from factories in Hong Kong.
As a designer, witnessing our earth’s resources diminish and the increasing amount of textile waste discarded day-by-day, I’ve become very motivated to utilise every piece of textile waste into my creations. - Esther Lui
