Editor’s Letter 編輯的話

You’ve got to love change. The fashion industry thrives on change. But now it needs seismic change to reduce its environmental impact, because what was yesterday a cherished, creative and cultural industry is today an over-producing, over-consuming and over-polluting industry. We are seeing positive changes as sustainability enters designers’ studios and the industries’ major players’ boardrooms and factory floors, catalyzed by the need for a less polluting fashion industry. We have played a prolific role in propagating sustainable design practices to emerging fashion designers through The EcoChic Design Award, our sustainable fashion design competition challenging designers to cut waste out of fashion. The EcoChic Design Award has grown rapidly. We are in our fourth cycle in three years since launching in Hong Kong in 2011 and we now target designers from Hong Kong, Mainland China, Taiwan, Singapore, UK, France, Belgium and Germany, with thanks to our major sponsor, Create Hong Kong. Our rapid progress is matched by the increasing environmental need as discussed on page 8. Meanwhile, innovation is taking place from East to West as designers and multistakeholders embrace education to fuel a change towards greater sustainability as explored on page 48. This magazine celebrates the positive changes occurring across the industry. We are honoured to introduce our current finalists on page 15 and celebrate select Alumni for their continuing progress on page 52. Collectively, these designers represent the change-agents to lead the future industry towards sustainability. On page 54, industry experts provide optimism and insight through their predictions for the road ahead. But we recognise that our mission – to reduce waste in the fashion industry – is far from over. We salute those travelling with us and call for others to join this journey. Together we can cut waste out of fashion.

我們都愛變化。 時裝業從變化而生。但從前 我們珍愛的創意文化產業,現今 變成一個過度生產、過度消費、 過度污染的行業。現在,時裝業 需要巨大變化,減少對環境的影 響。 為了減少時裝業造成的污染, 設計師和行業人士對可持續發展 日漸注重;我們目睹業內越見積 極的變更。 透過舉辦名為「衣酷適再生 時尚設計」的可持續時裝設計比 賽,我們扮演重要角色,向新 晉時裝設計師宣揚可持續設計實 踐,挑戰設計師減少時尚浪費。 「衣酷適再生時尚設計」於 2011年首次在香港舉行,感謝主 要贊助商創意香港的幫忙,令比 賽三年內增長迅速,現已進入第 四個週期。目標參賽者為香港、 中國內地、台灣、新加坡、英 國、法國、比利時和德國的設計 師。 我們日益進步是因應第8頁討 論的迫切環境需要而生。與此同 時,東西各地的設計師和多方持 份者創新變法,擁抱教育,以探 索在第48頁提及的變化,推動和 實現更廣闊的可持續發展。 這本雜誌慶祝整個行業積極正 面的轉變。我們很榮幸在第15頁 向大家介紹今屆比賽總決賽者, 以及在第52頁探討幾位歷屆參賽 者的進展。這些設計師象徵著變 更,帶領時裝業走向可持續的未 來。在第54頁,業內專家通過他 們對業界的預測,為前方道路提 供了樂觀的展望。 但我們意識到,我們的使 命—減少時裝界的浪費 —還未結 束。我們向使命一致的各界人士 致敬,並呼籲更多人加入這個旅 程。只要齊心協力,我們必定可 以減少時尚浪費。

CREATE

Hong Kong To embrace an environmentally-sustainable culture in our daily life is not only a virtue but a must, because we need to save our Mother Earth for the sustainability of human kind. Industry can do its part by minimising adverse impact on the environment, such as reducing waste, conserving energy, etc. To give more incentive to industry, stakeholders in the design field have been leading us to turn trash into treasure, in turn bringing new business opportunities to industry. Redress has been a forerunner in promoting sustainable fashion by annually organising The EcoChic Design Award. Since its inauguration in 2011, the Award has introduced the concepts of zero-waste design, upcycling and reconstruction in the fashion supply chain. It has also successfully nurtured many local young talents in the field of sustainable fashion. This year, I am most delighted to note that Redress has brought a global perspective to the Award, enabling designers from Asia and Europe to share insights in sustainable fashion. Such meaningful cause has the full support of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government, and we are most delighted that Hong Kong has served as a base for the promotion of sustainable fashion. I wish the event every success, and all participants a most inspiring experience. Jerry Liu Wing-leung Head, Create Hong Kong Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government

把環境可持續發展的文化融入日常生活中,不單是一種 美德,更是不可或缺的,因為我們要拯救大地,讓人類 得以延續發展下去。工業可用減廢、節能等等的方式為 環保出一分力,盡量減少對環境造成的不良影響。為了 鼓勵業界積極參與,設計業內人士已率先嘗試把「廢 物」變成「寶物」,為工業帶來嶄新的商機。

一年一度的「衣酷適再生時尚設計」的主辦機構 Redress,向來是推動可持續時裝設計的先驅。自二零 一一年首度舉辦比賽以來,零廢棄、升級再造和重新構 造的設計概念已注入時裝的供應鏈,並且在可持續時裝 設計領域內,成功培育了不少本地年青設計師。今年, 我很高興看到Redress在比賽中引入國際視野,匯聚亞 洲及歐洲的設計師,彼此分享對可持續時裝設計的真知 灼見。如此有意義的項目當然得到香港特別行政區政府 的鼎力支持,而最值得大家欣慰的是,香港已成為推廣 可持續時裝設計的基地。 謹此祝願「衣酷適再生時尚設計」2013圓滿成功,並希 望所有參賽者從中得到寶貴的經驗。 廖永亮 創意香港總監 香港特別行政區政府

wall 廢 of waste 牆


T

here is a wall of textile waste forming. It is fed from textile waste that flows from factories and cascades from closets. This wall reflects a contrasting image to the flashy images that ooze from pages of glossy magazines and off the catwalks. This wall has size and impact. The total annual generation of all types of textile waste in China is estimated to be more than 20 million tonnes 1. European Union consumers discard 5.8 million tonnes of textiles every year 2. Closer to home, an average of 217 tonnes of textiles are dumped into Hong Kong’s landfills every day 3 representing approximately 9083 discarded garments entering into Hong Kong’s landfills every hour 4. The need to combat this textile waste is as real for the environment as it is for the economy. Textile production results in drastic natural resource depletion and it causes serious environmental pollution, with The World Bank estimating that 17-20 percent of global industrial water pollution comes from the treatment and dyeing of textiles. With textile production being so polluting, such high waste numbers are even more unpalatable. Textile waste represents lost economic value, with reports estimating that China’s potential textile waste market value may be as high as RMB60 billion5. As a result, we are seeing a growing artillery of waste-reducing initiatives developed by fashion designers, brands and industry. These multi-stakeholders are making their own dents in the wall and are further driven by the need to protect their bottom lines and 1 2 3 4 5 6

to promote ‘better’ business practices. Fashion designers play an important role in reducing textile waste. An estimated 80-90 percent of the environmental and economic impact of a product is determined by the designer6, so what they may lack in size, compared with the giants of the mass fashion and textile industries that spurt pollution on Hong Kong’s doorstep, designers make up for in power. Emerging designers in The EcoChic Design

The ‘Recycled Collection by Esprit’ range is made using recycled textiles, which were created by recycling Esprit’s own textile waste from their own supply chain. H&M, M&S and Puma have developed take-back campaigns for consumers to drop off unwanted clothes in-store so as to increase postconsumer clothing waste reduction. The broader industry is getting engaged, albeit sporadically. Many textile manufacturers, including

The EcoChic Design Award Grand Final China 2012

Award reduce waste by eliminating waste at the design stage, through zero-waste design, and by using textile waste in their garments through up-cycling and reconstruction (see overleaf). Notable established designer, Orsola de Castro, successfully up-cycles textile waste through her brand, Reclaim to Wear. Her larger-scale textile waste up-cycling collection collaborations with other brands, such as Topshop, Tesco and Speedo, demonstrates the wider viability of upcycling in the mainstream fashion market. Several brands are working at different stages along the supply chain to reduce textile waste.

Central Textiles, Crystal Group and Yagi & Co., have developed exciting ranges of recycled yarns and textiles to soak up fibre and textile waste, without compromising quality. Whilst these examples demonstrate positive initiatives to reduce textile waste, greater efforts across the supply chain are urgently required. The wall of waste is continuously growing, given the fashion industry’s rapid cycles and consumers’ lust for fast fashion trends. But if we can see the wall as an opportunity and not an obstacle, then we are halfway towards winning the battle.

羅錦安

香港總決賽者 Alex is currently working as a fashion graphic designer in Hong Kong. In 2013 he graduated with a Higher Diploma in Fashion Design from the Hong Kong Design Institute. For his The EcoChic Design Award 2013 Collection, Alex combined zero-waste, up-cycling and reconstruction design techniques to create new outfits using leftover textiles and finished clothing samples sourced from a factory in Hong Kong. “Everyone has a pair of jeans but few are aware of the immense environmental impacts of denim production. A lot of heavy metals and chemicals are used to dye denim, which damage the environment and affect human health. However, denim is a durable, heavy-duty fabric that is perfect for recycling and reconstruction. For this reason, I think denim should be a prime concern when designing sustainable fashion.” 羅錦安畢業於香港知專設計學院,獲頒發時裝設計及開發高級 文憑,目前在香港從事時裝平面設計工作。 關於他「衣酷適再生時尚設計」2013 的參賽系列,羅錦安從學 院和香港一家工廠採集剩餘的紡織品,並結合零廢棄、升級再 造和重新構造的設計技術,創造煥然一新的服裝。 「每個人至少都有一條牛仔褲,但很少人知道生產牛仔布對環 境有著巨大的影響。染牛仔布需要用到大量的重金屬和化學物 質,因而破壞環境,影響人體健康。單單在中國珠江三角洲, 每年已產出二億條牛仔褲,令珠江染成了黑色。雖然牛仔褲造 成很多污染和破壞,但牛仔褲在時裝界佔很重要的角色,有人 甚至認為牛仔褲是永遠的潮流。然而,牛仔布是一種耐用的重 型織物,是回收和再造的最佳物料。出於這個原因,我覺得牛 仔布應該是可持續時裝設計時的首要關注。」

戴歆彥 中國內地總決賽者 Xinyan is currently studying Fashion Design at the Beijing Institute of Fashion Technology in China. For her The EcoChic Design Award 2013 Collection, Xinyan combined up-cycling and reconstruction design techniques to create new outfits using cut-and-sew waste from her own production and secondhand garments sourced from her friends. “I believe a great designer can use any existing materials to create something new, and that natural resources should not be wasted. Textiles should not be cut or dyed solely to create something beautiful. For this reason, I find the concept of reconstructing used materials in sustainable fashion to be very appealing.” 戴歆彦目前在中國北京服裝學院就讀,學習服裝設計。 關於她「衣酷適再生時尚設計」2013 的參賽系列,戴歆彦運 用她自己生產的布料碎屑和朋友的二手衣服,結合零廢棄和 重新構造的設計手法,創造嶄新的服裝。 「我認為一個好的設計師應該可以將任何東西都進行重新設 計,使之成為新的產品。大自然也絕不再允許我們鋪張浪 費,為了美而去印染、剪裁更多布料。可持續服裝設計可使 舊物循環再造成為新的時尚,,它的魅力深深吸引了我。」

Tsung-Chin Chiang Taiwan Finalist

姜宗瑾 台灣總決賽者 Tsung-Chin is currently studying a Masters in Fashion Design at Shih Chien University in Taipei. For her The EcoChic Design Award 2013 Collection, TsungChin reconstructed secondhand garments sourced from her own wardrobe, as well as her friends and family. “Fast fashion makes me re-think our need for clothes. The emphasis should not be about ‘having’ but about ‘using’. To redesign and re-use clothes from past seasons is a way to extend a ‘bond’ between people and clothes. For me it is important to keep the original features of the old clothes and I don’t try to completely transform them. Instead, I try to reconstruct used clothes by fitting them to the different parts of the body to create uniqueness. When an old garment gets given a new life, it is even more unique.” 姜宗瑾目前在台北實踐大學服裝設計的碩士課程就讀。 關於她「衣酷適再生時尚設計」2013 的參賽系列,姜宗瑾利用 自己的衣櫃裡,以及她朋友和家人的二手衣物,重新構造成服 裝。 「快速時尚讓我反思對於衣物的滿足,重點不在於『擁有』,而 是『使用』,將過季無用的衣物轉化為可用。藉由『再設計』而 能夠『再使用』。我延續的是情感,每一件都是唯一,而被賦予 了新生命後也同樣是唯一。」

Refueling I

t is clear that education is the fuel needed to drive the fashion industry towards greater sustainability, even if the terrain is tough and the course not always clear. This educational fuel needs to reach classrooms, factory floors and executive boardrooms along the fashion supply chain. What is less clear is whether the road towards sustainability has enough universities, academic institutions and trainers poised to refuel an industry in need so that designers and industry professionals possess the information to power the long distance ahead. There is currently an uneven balance between educational supply and demand. This needs to be comprehensively addressed. We revealed a high demand for sustainable fashion education from fashion designers when we surveyed 798 emerging designers from Hong Kong, Mainland China, Taiwan and Singapore. Ninety five percent said they think it is important for designers to be educated about sustainable fashion and that sustainable fashion should be integrated into universities’ fashion design curriculums. We personally witnessed their thirst for knowledge when we delivered 22 lectures to over 1075 fashion design students in Hong Kong, Mainland China, Taiwan, Singapore, UK, France and Germany last year. But even if the demand is there, the supply appears sporadic. Leading the way is the Centre for Sustain-

48

able Fashion at London College of Fashion with their MA Fashion Futures and ESMOD Berlin’s MA Sustainability in Fashion. These centres have put sustainable fashion where it should be – fully recognised as comprehensive courses that are not tucked away into smaller modules, if at all included. In Asia, we are seeing preliminary but positive steps to introduce sustainable fashion modules within various fashion degrees’ broader curriculums. Our own The EcoChic Design Award has been integrated into various curriculums in Hong Kong and Mainland China to provide a sustainable fashion educational energy boost for Asia’s emerging fashion designers. We also created our online Learn platform so that more designers can get free online access to information on their respective roads to sustainability. Excitingly, the traffic on the roads towards sustainability is getting busier. Alongside emerging fashion designers’ mopeds and small engines, we are also seeing powerful players take to the road who drive the fashion industry’s fastest turbo engines. We are seeing the provision of sustainable fashion education within the established industry community grow as companies take their leaders back to the blackboard to revise and reinvent sustainability initiatives from within. Hong Kong’s Sustainable Fashion Business Consortium

(SFBC) is a positive example of a sustainability-driven business platform that fosters sharing about sustainable fashion initiatives and collaborations amongst multi-stakeholders along the supply chain. Sweden’s Sustainable Fashion Academy equips leaders and entrepreneurs working at different levels within the industry with the knowledge and tools they need to develop and drive sustainable apparel innovations. So too are collaborations between academia and business increasing as the world’s thinkers unite with the world’s producers. As part of MISTRA Future Fashion Program, Textiles Environmental Design researchers developed a bespoke training program for H&M’s design staff to explore design thinking for sustainability. Elsewhere, The Fashion Futures report, produced by Forum for the Future, collaborated with Levi Strauss & Co. to provide guidance on how the entire fashion supply chain can safeguard its future and protect our environment. It is clear from the growing environmental problems that the industry cannot keep making clothes the way it is. But to change our clothes, we need to go to the source to educate the entire fashion supply chain, from designers with their fresh perspectives and hunger for information, to industry professionals with their master keys to the market. Afterall, it is education that will fuel this long journey ahead.


the industry 為行業加油 教

育是推動時尚產業走向更可 持續發展的燃料。即使過程 艱巨,前路未茫,這種教育燃料需 要達到時裝供應鏈中的教室、工廠 車間和行政會議室。 前路未茫的原因,是因為不 知現在可持續道路是否有足夠的 大學、學術機構和培訓人員,為 行業加油,提供資訊,讓設計師 和業內專業人士來提前供電,準 備長征。 目前需要全面解決是教育供 給和需求之間的不平衡。 我們發現業內時裝設計師對可 持續時裝教育有著很大的需求。我 們調查來自香港、中國內地、台灣 及新加坡798位新晉設計師,其中 95%認為可持續時裝教育對設計師 非常重要,而關於可持續時裝的設 計方式亦應納入大學的時裝設計課 程。我們去年在香港、中國內地、 台灣、新加坡、英國、法國和德國 合共舉辦22個講座,與超過1075 位就讀時裝設計專業的學生對話, 親眼目睹他們對時裝設計的求知 欲。 但是,即使市場有需求,供給 卻零零星星。 領先一步的是倫敦時裝學 院可持續時裝中心(London College of Fashion Centre for Sustainable Fashion)的時裝

未來(Fashion Futures)碩士 課程,及ESMOD柏林高級時裝 藝術學院(ESMOD Berlin)的 可持續時裝(Sustainability in Fa s h i o n ) 碩 士 課 程 。 這 些 學 術 中 心把可持續時裝定為全面、獨立成 科的課程,而非個別課堂中小小的 一環,有些課程甚至不把可持續時 裝放在眼內。 在亞洲,我們看到初步但積極 的改變,循序漸進在各類時裝學位 課程中介紹可持續時裝設計。我們 的「衣酷適再生設計」已經融入香 港及中國內地的各種課程,為亞洲 新晉時裝設計師提供可持續時裝教 育。我們還創立了網上學習平台, 讓更多設計師可以免費得到信息, 在各自的設計道路上作可持續發 展。 令人興奮的是,可持續發展的 道路交通越見頻繁。除了新晉時裝 設計師的輕便摩托車和小型引擎, 我們也看到厲害的時尚玩家駕駛時 裝業最快、最時尚的列車,踏上可 持續之旅。 我們看到業內可持續時裝教育 發展迅速,公司帶領員工重回教 室,從內部修改和重塑可持續發展 的方案。香港的時裝企業持續發展 聯盟(SFBC)便是個好例子,它 是一個以可持續發展為導向的業務 平台,致力促進有關可持續時裝

措施的交流,以及供應鏈中多方 利益相關者和合作。瑞典的可持續 時裝學院(Sustainable Fashion Academy)則裝備業內不同層次 的領袖和企業家,增進其知識,並 提供創新工具,以助發展和推動可 持續服裝。 同樣地,學術界和商界之間 的合作隨著全球思想家團結世界 生產商而增加。作為MISTRA未 來時尚計劃(Future Fashion Program)研究項目的一部分, 紡 織 環 境 設 計 研 究 小 組 ( Te x t i l e Environmental Design)為H&M 的設計團隊開發了一個定制的培訓 計劃,探討可持續的設計思維。 非牟利組織未來論壇(Forum for the Future)則與利维-斯特劳斯 公司(Levi Strauss & Co)合 作 , 編 著 「 時 裝 未 來 報 告 Fa s h i o n Futures report」,提供如何在整 個時裝供應鏈中能夠保障未來,保 護環境的指導。 環境問題日益嚴重,正正明確 表明時尚行業不能以現有方法繼 續生產服裝。但要改變,我們需要 由根源著手,從充滿新觀點和渴望 知識的設計師,到明瞭市場需求的 行業專業人士,教育整個時裝供應 鏈。 畢竟,教育是這個漫長旅程的 主要燃料。

what’s next 2014

新動向

Debra Tan director, china water risk 中國水危機網站總監 “A business-as-usual approach will see fashion blindsided by water risks in China & India. With around 50% of cotton grown in India and China (the number one and two most water stressed countries globally), brands may have no choice but to look for new materials that require less energy & water to make, recycling of textile waste and clothes. And it’s not just cotton but leather as well. Across the apparel and footwear industries, we expect to see more focus on the selection of materials at the design stage that use and pollute less water and tools developed like the MSI (Materials Sustainability Index) should help.

“按照慣常方式辦事,將會因中國以及印 度的水危機而變成死胡同。全球有近50% 的棉花種植在印度和中國(全球水資源最 緊缺國家第一和第二位),品牌公司將失 去選擇的餘地,轉向尋找需要較少水和能 源來生產的新材料,或是以回收的紡織廢 料以及衣物作材料。不僅是棉花,還有皮 革。服裝和鞋類行業將更著重在設計時選 用使用較少水源以及造成較少水源污染的 原材料,而MSI(材料可持續性指數)等 工具將十分有用。

With increasing NGO pressure on pollute on in the supply chain, we should also see more focus on the selection of water-friendly chemicals for dying & finishing, a bias towards ‘green’ manufacturers and commitment to zeroliquid discharge.

隨著非政府組織在生產鏈上施加越多壓 力,鼓勵減少污染,我們將看到更多的關 注投放在染色和最終生產階段中,選擇不 會污染水源的化合物,傾向綠色生產,以 及為零流質排放作出貢獻。

Limited water resources will no doubt shape fashion’s choice of raw materials. Brands should do well to mitigate water risks with a corporate water strategy.”

有限的水資源無疑會減少時尚界對於原材 料的選擇。品牌生產商應該為緩解水危機 作出貢獻,制定公司用水戰略。”

Sass Brown Assistant Dean, School of Art and Design Fashion Institute of Technology 美國時裝技術學院美術與設計學校院長助理 “I think that 2014 will see gross consumerism well on its way to becoming a thing of the past. It will no longer be considered cool to walk down the high street with bulging bags of fashion purchases, whether from Primark or Chanel. It will be considered far cooler to tell the considered and valued stories of those who knitted, farmed or wove our clothing; using our purchases as a means of expressing our values, not just our personal aesthetic. I think that many people will come to realise the power they wield with wallet, and conscious consumerism will become much more commonplace. There will be an increased interest in purchasing quality over quantity, and more concern about whether those that made our clothes were treated fairly and paid well.” 54

“我認為到了2014年,消費主義會 逐漸變得過時。手持一袋一袋的時尚 消費品將不再是一件很酷的事情,哪 怕品牌是Primark還是Chanel。相比 之下消費者會更加著重宣揚那些在生 產我們衣物過程中編織衣物、種植原 材料、或者織布成衣的人有價值的故 事,我們的購買行為將變成一種表達 價值觀的方式,而不僅僅關乎個人審 美觀。我認為更多人會意識到消費的 力量,道德消費主義會越趨平常。消 費者將更著重質量,而不是數量,並 且更加關心生產衣物的工人是否得到 公平的對待及合理的報酬。”


Timo Rissanen Assistant Professor of Fashion Design and Sustainability, School of Fashion Parsons The New School for Design 時裝設計和可持續發展(Fashion Design and Sustainability)助理教授, 帕森設計學院時裝院校(School of Fashion, Parsons The New School for Design) “2014 is a year to follow the Sustainable Apparel Coalition (SAC). Through 2013 SAC has been working closely with fashion educators from across the globe, and we will begin to see fruits of these labors in 2014. The knowledge is there for us to begin to reimagine business models, business thinking and the economic system within which we all exist.

“2014年是時候留意可持續服裝聯盟 (Sustainable Apparel Coalition)的最 新動向。縱觀2013年,聯盟一直與來自世界 各地的時裝教育工作者緊密合作,將在2014 年看到辛勤工作的成果。透過同盟分享的知 識,我們重新構想商業模式、商業思維和經 濟體系。

While I am fatigued by excessive talk in light of insufficient action (and I hold myself just as accountable in this respect as I do everyone else), there is an overdue conversation on value in fashion. The conversation is inseparable from the questioning of growth to measure success. Throughout 2014, I invite you to engage in the question: What are my core values, and do they manifest in my relationship to fashion? As I engage in it, I see a renewed need to reach out to former students now working in the fashion industry. In the words of my visionary friend, Lynda Grose, it is time for us to lock arms.”

雖然我對只有空談而不行動的行為感到厭倦 (我認為自己在這方面和其他人一樣要負上 責任),但我們有必要探討時裝的價值。這 個有關時裝價值的討論與用增長來衡量成功 的質疑是分不開的。2014年,我想你問問自 己:我的核心價值是什麼,而這些核心價值 又能否在我和時裝的關係中體現?當我問完 自己這個問題後,我重新看到接觸現任職於 時裝界的舊生的需要。套我一位很有遠見的 朋友Lynda Grose的話,現在是時候讓我們 一同努力。”

Orsola de Castro Co-founder, From Somewhere, Co-founder and Curator, Estethica 品牌 From Somewhere 聯合創辦人, Estethica 聯合創辦人兼總監 “As the fashion trend moves into the 90’s revival, grunge will be back and up-cycling will fit that look to a tee. I predict modern up-cycling will actually look “up-cycled”, but with a much edgier feel. I believe that in the highend sector there will be a rush to re-embrace artisans and manual skills and that crafts will become a tool for modern luxury once again.”

“踏入九十年代的復古潮流,落拓風街頭服 裝會重返時裝界,而升級再造正好配合,將 造型轉化到一件件T恤上。據我預測,摩登升 級再造將看似「升級再造」,但結合一種更 為時尚的感覺。我相信在高端時裝界將再度 出現對工匠以及手工技藝的急切追求。而那 種手藝會再次成為摩登高級品的生產工具。”

Kate Lin Campaigner, Greenpeace China 綠色和平項目主任連佩怡 “Toxic chemical pollution from the fashion industry is a real and deadly danger for many people in China. Hundreds of millions of people lack access to clean drinking water, while many more are drinking contaminated water. In 2014, I hope more brands will join force to Detox their production chain to add their voice to a global movement demanding fashion without pollution.”

“對許多身在中國的人來說,時裝產業所造 成的有毒化學物質污染是個真正的和致命的 危險。數以億計的人無法獲得乾淨的飲用 水,同時有更多的人正飲用受污染的水。在 2014年,我希望有更多的品牌能合力為生產 鏈「排毒」,為這個無污染時尚的全球性運 動出一分力。”
