The EcoChic Design Award 2017 First PRIZE Winner
Kate Morris is a finalist of the EcoChic Design Award 2017. She is currently studying fashion design at Nottingham Trent University, United Kingdom.
My journey into fashion has been led by the desire to create functional items of beauty that can contribute to changing behaviour and attitudes towards fast fashion. For me sustainable fashion is about each part of the supply chain working together, starting with the designer, to make informed decisions that will have minimum impact on the planet and its people. - Kate Morris
