The EcoChic Design Award 2015/16 Finalist
Di is currently exploring her interest in textiles and fashion and will soon resume her Fashion Design degree at the Beijing Institute of Fashion Technology. She previously interned for Claudia Li.
For her collection, Di was inspired by the continuous interconnection between the four seasons in traditional Chinese philosophy and by the concept that everything has a purpose and should not be wasted. She up-cycled discarded textiles, sourced from her university’s design studios.
Designing sustainable fashion and facing these waste challenges not only feels like the right thing to do but it has also boosted my design sensitivities even further. - Wang Di
