The clothing industry is the second-highest polluting industry after oil, yet the alternative of sustainable fashion is often expensive, confusing and unsuitable for everyday wear. In fifty fifty I made 50 garments in 50 days, using either opshopped, end-of-roll, NZ-made or gifted fabric. My project seeks to celebrate resourcefulness and rebrand sustainable fashion from being synonymous with high fashion to something more enjoyable and personal.
I’m a designer from a visual communication background who is interested in the communication of sustainability messages, worried about the state of the planet and in love with making clothes. My honours project is a synthesis of these things and I hope to keep making things that people love.
