Sustainability is the future of the fashion industry. We need to stop the system of use and waste and learn new ways to preserve our limited natural resources and produce what we need without having a negative impact on our environment. I believe that fashion designers exist to make the world a better and more positive place. This is what I am committed to upholding through my work. - Adriana Cagigas
EcoChic Design Award Collection
For her EcoChic Design Award application, Adriana uses the design techniques of up-cycling and reconstruction to transform secondhand clothes and textiles into things of beauty. Her collection is inspired by the concept of “Wabi Sabi”, a Japanese artistic, philosophical and cultural concept whereby imperfect things become representations of beauty.
