famously shared that ‘Fashion is a reflection of our times.’ If true, then fashion reveals not just the season’s ideal hemline or hue but also our generation’s reactions to the state of the world; be it her politics, socio-economic conditions or the overall sentiment of her people. On the one hand, this couldn’t be more sobering.

S

ustainable fashion is part of the larger trend of sustainable design. Sustainable fashion designers help

create social change through the use of environmentally friendly materials, socially responsible design techniques and production methods.

By

incorporating

sustainable

practices into modern clothing, we open up a new eco-conscious perspective and a new business opportunity. Redress has been strongly committed to promoting sustainable fashion design and nurturing local emerging fashion designers. Since

the

inauguration

of

The

EcoChic

Design Award in 2011 in Hong Kong, Redress has been continuously providing exposure and development opportunities to winning designers and alumni to build up their portfolios, presenting sustainable fashion design in both public area and mainstream fashion trade fairs to raise awareness and generate demand on sustainable fashion, gathering industry professionals and design educators to exchange views, and holding lectures to educate design students on the sustainable fashion design principles etc. With the introduction of a global perspective to The EcoChic Design Award in 2013, the interaction with overseas participants has proven to be an invaluable experience for local participating designers and a precious opportunity to broaden their horizons. Having been the major sponsor of The EcoChic Design Award since 2011, we are particularly delighted to see the extensive support from different sectors and stakeholders for the Award. We are also thrilled by the innovative and stylish outlook presented in the works of the participating designers of the Award. I would like to express my sincere appreciation to Redress for its commitment in promoting sustainable fashion design. I am sure that The EcoChic Design Award 2014/15 will be another success.

The Making Of


The power of the designer to

CREATE CHANGE 設計師創造轉變的力量 With fashion being one of the world’s most polluting industries, from production to disposal, there is now a growing urgency for fashion designers to be part of the solution. Here Alison Gwilt examines their important role.

T

he fashion designer, in many of our micro, small or medium sized fashion companies, is at the centre of the creative

process. The designer leads the development of the collection, from the generation of initial design ideas through to the production of the sample range. Throughout this process the designer has to work with pattern makers, sample machinists, suppliers, textile designers and buyers in order to produce the collection on time, within budget and to market expectations.

Although the creation of fashion is a collective process, the designer can be an agent for change and can influence and steer the broader team to engage with sustainable design strategies in order to innovatively and creatively reduce or avoid the environmental impacts of fashion clothing, including the levels of textile waste. During the design and production process, the designer can engage with sustainable design strategies as a method of minimising or avoiding specific environmental or social impacts associated with the lifecycle of a product. Currently within the fashion industry we can observe a small but growing range of brands that are successfully integrating sustainable design strategies as a means of reducing textile waste. Designers are readily exploring a variety of approaches to create more considered and slow fashion. This includes design for durability, where the focus is placed on producing garments for an extended lifecycle by designing them to withstand or enhance the wearing experience. At the same time, reuse approaches are widely employed by designers and strategies here include design for up-cycling, which places an emphasis on adding value to discarded or damaged garments or materials so they may become wearable again, and design for closed-loop systems, which aims to recycle waste products and materials through biological or technical processes in an effort to eliminate textile waste altogether. Encouragingly, whilst designers are innovating, we are also seeing change within academic institutes and within the broader industry as the range of strategies available to design continues to expand as new approaches are identified and trialed. With greater knowledge comes further confidence. Designers are now increasingly engaging with lifecycle thinking, which can lead to working


with several strategies across one or more lifecycle phases in order to achieve greater gains. Understanding the impacts of their decision making, positive and negative, across all aspects of the garment’s lifecycle in turn may also reveal other opportunities for intervention and improvement. Engaging with a wider range of sustainable design strategies at a given time, the designer can tackle areas of concern, such as textile waste, across a number of phases including at the outset of design, during manufacturing processes and at the disposal phase. This lifecycle thinking creates benefits within many phases in the lifecycle of a garment. But all too frequently during the creative process, designers give no consideration to their garments’ use and disposal phases in the belief that their ‘design responsibility’ ends once the garment is in the retail store. This reiterates the importance of designers embracing lifecycle thinking so that they consider their garment’s end of life even as they conceive the initial design. Armed with the knowledge, designers will then be able to routinely identify and employ appropriate strategies during specific points of intervention. However, if we are to support designers to engage with sustainability then we need to look at and critique the way that we teach, learn and use a process for design and production; and it is this point that I believe needs addressing. Ultimately we should be encouraging designers to embrace a multiplicity of sustainable design strategies within design practice as a normal, regular part of the creation process, and this can be encouraged both within the educational environment and the industry. Against a backdrop of challenges that face the international manufacturing community, including economic instability, resource scarcity and climate change; it is important that we support fresh perspectives, new ideas and innovation in sustainable fashion in order to inspire upcoming designers and safeguard a future fashion industry.

從生產到棄置,時裝是世 界上污染最嚴重的行業之 一;設計師卻是解決污染 問題的良藥,Alison Gwilt 亦 就此解釋身為設計師的重 要性。

無論在微型、小型或中型的時裝公司,時裝設計 師都是創作過程的核心。設計師帶領時裝系列的 誕生,從設計意念的萌生,直至與樣板師、縫紉 人員、供應商、紡織設計師和採購商合作,以確 保產品能在預算之中準時生產,達致市場期望。 雖然創造時尚是一個集體過程,但設計師能成為 帶領改變的靈魂人物,以創意影響團隊採用可持 續設計策略,減少及避免時裝對環境的影響,包 括紡織廢料的數量。在設計和生產過程中,設計 師可以融合可持續設計策略,盡量減少或避免與 產品在生命週期所衍生的環境或社會影響。

在目前時裝業內,我們看到少數卻越來越多的品 牌,成功融合可持續設計戰略,作為減少紡織廢料的方法。設計師很容 易發掘更多不同方法,以創造出更有利環境的慢時尚。這包括從設計的 耐用性著手,提升穿衣體驗的衣服,以延長服裝本身的生命週期。與此 同時,重新再用亦被設計師廣泛採用,包括以升級再造將被丟棄或損壞 的衣服或材料增值,令衣服可以再次穿著。另外,閉環設計系統能以生 物或技術回收廢產品和材料,完全消除紡織廢料。 令人鼓舞的是,不但設計師們勇於求變,我們也見證到學術機構和行 業,都願意廣泛地接受可持續設計策略和發展新的方法。 透過汲取更多的知識能建立更多的信心。越來越多設計師在設計前,都 已經在產品的不同生命週期階段,預先考慮再融入一項或多項的可持續 策略,以實現更大的收益。當設計師了解到,不論他們的決定是正面或 負面,都會影響到服裝的生命週期;反過來想,同時也造就更多讓可持 續策略介入及進步的機會。


設計師在特定時間內更廣泛地融入可持續設計策略,能夠解決不同的問 題。以紡織廢料為例,如果在設計開始前,製造過程中,以至棄置階 段,都能考慮到生命週期,這樣的思維可以在服裝的生命週期各個階段 中創造好處。 但由於創作過程太急速,設計師在衣服使用和棄置上沒有好好周詳考 慮,他們的「設計責任」其實在衣服陳列到零售店上便結束。這再次重 申設計師融匯生命週期思維的重要性,不論在衣服生命週期的結束或是 最初步的設計。 有了知識,設計師能更明確地識別,採用適當的策略。但如果要支持設 計師採用可持續概念,我們需要審視和判斷,從教導、學習、以及使用 設計和生產的過程方面著手,而我正正希望帶出這一點 。 最終,我們可以透過教育環境和行業兩方面,鼓勵設計師更常規更多元 化地在創作過程中發展可持續性。 面對全球製造業的各方挑戰,包括經濟不穩定、資源短缺和氣候變化等 挑戰;我們要支持新晉設計師以嶄新視角、思維和創新的可持續的方 式,來守護未來的時裝業是非常重要的。

Ones To Watch 不容忽視 Malaysia is fast becoming a sustainable fashion industry to watch. Our local Malaysia judge for The EcoChic Design Award 2014/15, Melinda Looi’s line Mell Basics, is the first fully-certified Malaysian organic cotton basics line. Pearly Wong is another Malaysian designer of note. Her brand specialises in the zero-waste design technique and her F/W 2014/15 line has a range of jackets that can be turned into vests with detachable hoods, pockets and sleeves. Flexible fashion at its very best.

Five Year Plan 五年計劃 The China Central Government is demonstrating its commitment to recycling and reducing textile waste. The 12th Five-Year Plan, which runs from 2011-2015, states clear requirements for utilising textile waste with the aim of achieving a 20% to 40% textile recycling rate, and 2014 reports claim that China was on her way to achieving this. At a time when China’s total fibre processing is predicted to reach 51.5 million tonnes, we are keen supporters of the government’s eager efforts.

中國政府正體現承諾,著手推動循環再用和減少紡織廢料。由 2011 至 2015 年所推行的「十二五規劃」,清楚表明計劃目標是達到 20 至 40% 的紡織品回收率,2014 年的報告指出中國正朝目標邁進。預 期中國的總纖維處理量將達至 5,150 萬,我們是政府積極推動政策 的支持者。

The Fabric of Football 足球布料 of converting discarded plastic bottles, which are made of polyethylene terephthalate (PET), into recycled PET textiles. Enjoying a 70% market share of this recycled PET fibre market, including supplying ten teams with kits during the World Cup 2014, this is offering a solution for Taiwan’s huge consumption of plastic bottles, where 4.5 billion plastic bottles are used annually. Will the likes of David Luiz sporting a recycled kit spur a trend among football players and fans alike?

台灣 紡 織 品 供 應 商 率先 利 用 聚乙 烯 對 苯 二甲 酸 酯 (PET ) 製成的廢棄膠樽,再造成 PET 紡織品;佔據 70% 再生 PET 纖維市場,包括為十支球隊於 2014 世界盃 提供套件。這為台灣每年消耗 45 億膠樽的嚴重情況 下,提供了解決方案。你想 David Luiz 的再生足球套件 會成為足球運動員和球迷們的潮流嗎?

Maternal Instinct 母性的可貴 catering to the growing girths of mums-to-be whilst also reducing textile waste. Amongst their services, customers can rent maternity wear to accommodate their changing bumps to minimise their impact. Of course we love the idea! Maternity Exchange 是一個新加坡的創新零售概念店,讓各位準

媽媽為減少紡織廢料而出力。該店服務範圍之一是提供孕婦裝的 租借服務,準媽媽可以租借服飾應付身形上的短期改變,減少浪 費。我們當然欣賞這個想法!

Sustainable Frontline 可持續前線

Changing Views 改變想法 One of the UK’s leading opinion-forming journalists on environmental issues and ethical consumerism, Lucy Siegle is devoted to widening the appeal of sustainability issues. Lucy is a regular contributor for The Guardian and has penned one of our favourite go-to books, To Die For, Is Fashion Wearing out the World? Lucy is certainly on our wavelength.

作為英國在環境問題和道德消費主義的議題上,其中一位最具領導 地位的記者 Lucy Siegle ,致力促進大眾關注可持續性問題的。Lucy 是衛報的撰稿人,以及我們最愛的讀物之一《To Die For, Is Fashion Wearing out the World?》的作者。Lucy 肯定與我們站在同一陣線上 。

Valuing Waste 廢料的價值 Waste & Resources Action Programme (WRAP) is a UK-based organisation dedicated towards promoting recycling at home and in the workplace as a means of driving economic and environmental benefits. WRAP estimates that in the UK an estimated £140million worth of used clothing, which weighs in at approximately 350,000 tonnes, enters UK landfills every year. In particular, their work on the Sustainable Clothing Action Plan (SCAP) aims to improve the sustainability of clothing across its lifecycle. We couldn’t be bigger fans of their ground-breaking work.

Kering is one of the world’s leading fashion conglomerates who are placing sustainability at its core. By 2016, they aim to extend their sustainability targets and values across all of their 21 brands, which include Stella MaCartney and Balenciaga. Their targets touch on their use of water, their carbon emissions and more efficient goals around material use in their products and packaging. It’s great to see Kering going above and beyond compliance targets as they pave the way for sustainable luxury fashion.

What a NICE Idea NICE 正能量 spearheaded by the Nordic Fashion Association. Their website is an invaluable tool for consumers, providing consumer care tips around washing, caring and longevity of clothing, and for designers, providing information about environmentally safe and ethical design and sourcing. Every two years, NICE organises the Copenhagen Fashion Summit, where leading power players come together to discuss the fashion industry’s social and environmental responsibilities and solutions. Here’s hoping that their case studies will only inspire more change.

北歐清潔與道德倡議 (NICE) 是一項由北歐時裝協會率先開展的多元化 項目。他們的網站對消費者而言是一個非常有用的工具,為他們提供各 種衣物護理和延長衣服壽命的貼士。同時為設計師提供有關環境安全 和道德的設計和採購資訊。每隔兩年,NICE 所舉辦的哥本哈根時裝峰 會,將全球領導專家匯首一堂,討論時尚產業的社會和環境責任和解 決方案,相信他們的案例研究會啟發更多的轉變。

Showing off Sustainability 展示可持續性 The Green Showroom shows off over 80 international sustainable fashion labels in Germanys’ leading biannual ethical industry trade show held during Berlin Fashion Week. The trade show also hosts a fascinating fringe programme full of talks from leading industry experts and seminars. We are encouraged.

Our one international panel and our ten local panels of judges have collectively scrutinized our strongest line up of emerging sustainable fashion designers’ applications and designs to date. Here, we glimpse into three of our esteemed international judges’ daily lives to get a snippet of insight into their world of fashion.

Orsola de Castro Co-founder, From Somewhere, Co-founder and Curator, Estethica 可持續品牌 From 品牌 From Somewhere 聯合創辦人, Estethica 聯合創辦人兼總監 Morning: I wake up to my coffee and The Guardian newspaper, which I read avidly. Then I go to my studio in Peckham, London to discuss with my team the day’s various tasks, from sampling to our ongoing projects, including Fashion Revolution Day (held on 24 April to raise awareness the fashion industry’s most pressing issues by asking ‘Who Made Your Clothes?’) which is always high on our agenda. Afternoon: I dedicate myself to creative things for From Somewhere. This generally includes making a big mess in order to create beautiful clothes! On Mondays, I teach at Camberwell College of Arts and once or twice a month I go to Kids Company to teach my up-cycling class. Evening: I go to many fashion events and art openings around London. If I have a social event on, I spend quite a bit of time deciding what to wear, sometimes with the invaluable help of my 11-year-old daughter!

早上:起床喝咖啡、細閱衛報,然後回到我於倫敦佩卡姆的工作坊, 跟我的團隊討 論一天的工作,從 採 購到進行中的項目,包括 我們 最 重要的項目之一 — 時裝革命日(舉行於 4 月 24 日,提出「誰製 造你 的衣服?」以提高時裝界對最緊急的問題的意識)。 下午:把精神全部投放 於 From Somewhere 的產品創作上,大致包 括 亂翻一大 堆衣物,以製 造 美 麗的作品。星期一,我在 坎伯韋爾藝 術學院任教;每個月我會到 Kids Company 教導升級再造課程一至 兩次。 傍晚:出席很 多於 倫敦舉 辦的時裝活動及藝 術開幕。如果要出席社 交活動,我會花很多時間決 定我的服飾,有時候我 11 歲的女兒也會 給我寶貴的意見。


Dorian Ho 何國鉦 Fashion Designer 時裝設計師

Morning: It’s collection development time and I’ve instructed the designers and merchandisers to check all available fabrics, accessories and trims that are in stock that might be used for the upcoming season. Afternoon: I have design meetings with the designers and assistants and we discuss upcoming trends, inspirations, directions, colours and silhouettes. I design menswear and womenswear together so I am able to share most of the fabrics and accessories leaving very little waste and hence saving time and money. Evening: My office day ends at around 8pm. After this, I usually go on to participate in local fashion events. If I don’t have a dinner appointment or a special event to attend, I usually spend the evening playing with my kids Hugo and Ting Ting at home.

早上:這 是發展設計系列的時間,我會 指導設計師及 採 購員檢 查 所 有現有的布料、飾物及碎布,看看哪些可用於新一季的設計中。 下午:跟設計師及助手開設計會議,討 論 新興的潮流、靈感、方向、 顏色及圖樣。我同時設計男裝及 女裝 服飾,所以能夠 雙 重善用大部 分的布料及配飾,剩下極少的廢料,並省卻時間和金錢。 傍 晚:我 大 約八時下 班,之後 通常參加 本 地 的 時 裝 活動。如果 沒有 飯局或特別的活動要出席,我通常留在家裡,把時間留給子女 Hugo 和 TingTing。

Yvonne Luk 陸思敏 Chief Editor, WGSN China 中國 WGSN 總編輯 Morning: I like to start my day with a quick breakfast and then I go swimming before work, as this is how I clear my mind and prepare for new challenges everyday. When I get to the office I research the latest developments in fashion. Afternoon: I meet with fashion people, including trend spotters, designers and product developers, and I work on creative and trend direction. I meet with WGSN clients to obtain first-hand information and user related understanding about their products. Evening: I usually make time for my family and friends or I check out my favourite blogs and social media platforms to look for interesting ideas or inspirations.

早上:在 上 班前我會 吃一個快 速的早餐然後去 游泳,這 是我整理思 緒、為 新 一 天的挑 戰作 準 備的方法。回到公司後,我會 搜 集時裝最 新發展的資料。 下午:跟時裝界人士開會,包括觀潮員、設計師及 產品發展員,而我 則負責創意及潮流方向。與 WGSN 客戶見面,取得第一手資料及關 於用戶對產品的了解。 傍晚:我通常抽時間陪 伴家人及 朋友,或瀏覽我 最喜愛的網誌及社 交平台,尋找有趣的意念或靈感。

‘I’ve realised my lifestyle greatly affects the environment and as a result I want to be a sustainable fashion designer to help to protect it. Through my designs, I hope to show the world my sustainable ideas and work to lower the negative environmental impacts of the fashion industry.’

「自我意識到我們的生活態度會對環境造成影響開始,我希望能為未來的環境出一分力,立志成為一 名可持續時裝設計師。透過參賽系列,向世界展示環保理念從而引起大眾關注,把時裝設計對環境造 成的污染減到最低。」

Cher is currently working on her own studio, The Share Studio, which offers tailoring for private clients that she established in Hong Kong 2014. She is a Fashion Design graduate from Middlesex University, London and has interned for numerous Hong Kong fashion brands and designers, including Barney Cheng and High Fashion International. Cher was inspired by the celebrated Chinese author Eileen Chang’s legendary literature and Chang’s personal fashion style for her The EcoChic Design Award 2014/15 collection. Cher used the sustainable design techniques of zero-waste, up-cycling and reconstruction onto her textile waste source, comprising end-of-roll recycled cotton and damaged textiles, which she sourced from fabric suppliers in Hong Kong, and secondhand textiles and clothes. The result is a collection featuring crocheted garments overlaying key pieces.

Get to know Cher

認識陳潁蓉

Who or what is your fashion inspiration? It can be anyone or anything, as I never know what I will be inspired by. I’m a very sensitive and emotional person in general.

你的時裝靈感從甚麼或誰人而來? 靈 感 可 以 來 自 任 何 人 或 物 ,我 也 難 以 預 計 。 整 體 來 說, 我是一個很敏感及感情豐富的人。

Where do you go to get inspired? If I have time, I like to travel because I can then bring back new ideas with me on my return. Last year, I spent six months in Beijing, Hangzhou and Paris and this trip was very influential. If I do not have enough time to travel overseas, I like to go to libraries where there are endless numbers of stories and therefore new inspirations.

你從哪裡尋找靈感? 如 果 時 間 許 可,我喜 歡 旅 遊,因 為 我可以帶 著 新 意 念 回 來。去 年,我 在 北 京、杭 州 及 巴 黎 待了六 個 月,這 個 旅 程 對 我 影 響 深 遠。但如果 沒有足夠 時間到出外旅 遊,我喜 歡 到圖書館,無盡的 書本能給我無窮的新靈感。

What made you get into fashion? When I was very young, my mother studied fashion design and I used to silently watch her work on her projects. On my fourth birthday, I wore a skirt my mother made for me, which I have cherished and still have up to this day. When she gave this skirt to me, I knew that I wanted to become a fashion designer when I grew up. Tell us one unusual fact about yourself. In private I am quite solitary and introverted and I like to spend a lot of time alone. I don’t express myself well using words and so instead I like to express myself through my work, such as through drawings, photography and writing.

是甚麼令你投身時裝界? 我的 母 親 是 修 讀 時 裝 設 計,小 時 候 我 總 是 安 靜地看著她 工作。 四歲生日那天,我穿了一條 媽媽為我造的短裙,至今我 還珍而重 之。就在她把短裙送給我那一刻開始,我便知道自己希望長大後 成為時裝設計師。 告訴我們一件關於你的與眾不同的事情。 私 底 下 我 是 一 個 內 向 的人,喜 歡 獨 處。我不 善於用言 語 表 達自 己,所以我喜歡 透過行動來表達,例如畫畫、攝影及寫作。 設計及製作可持續時裝的過程中,你最享受的是甚麼? 設 計及 製 造衣 物的過 程 充 滿 著 機會及可能。設 計 對 我 來 說 就 像 畫畫,布料就是我的調色碟。我喜歡的是你永遠不知道一件衣服 最終的模樣,直至完成那刻為止。

What have you enjoyed most about designing and making sustainable fashion garments? The process of designing and making garments is full of opportunities and possibilities. I design my garments as I would paint; my fabric materials are my colour palette. I like the fact that you never truly know what the garment will look like until it is finished.

VICTOR

Prize Winner 第二名獎項得主

Shing Hong Chu 朱 承 康 Hong Kong Wildcard Finalist* 香 港額外名額總決賽者 *

‘Being a student with a huge passion for fashion, I have had the opportunity to understand the process of manufacturing clothes and I have witnessed the amount of materials being discarded. Seeing first-hand how fashion is damaging our environment, I started to reflect on my role as a designer. I think we should not solely be familiar with the design techniques and usage of fabrics, but also understand that both have a huge impact on the environment. I want to be a sustainable fashion designer to reduce the damage of the fashion industry. It is my responsibility as a designer.’

「身為一位熱愛時裝的學生,我們經常看見製造成衣的過程和接觸棄置的物料。眼見我們喜愛的時裝傷害了生活的環 境,令我不禁反思自己作為一名設計師的角色。我們不能只熟識設計技巧和布料的運用,還要了解這兩方面對環境造 成的傷害。我希望成為一位可持續時裝設計師,減少時裝界對環境的傷害,這是我們設計師的責任。」

Victor is currently studying Fashion and Textiles Design at The Polytechnic University in Hong Kong and received a Higher Diploma in Fashion Design and Development from Hong Kong Design Institute. He has previously interned for a selection of renowned local fashion designers and brands, including Johanna Ho and G2000. Victor was inspired by the founder of modern Chinese art, Wu Guanzhong and his Impressioniststyle paintings for his The EcoChic Design Award 2014/15 collection. Victor combined the sustainable design techniques of zero-waste, up-cycling and reconstruction to his textile waste source, comprising end-of-rolls, fabric swatches and his friend’s and family’s secondhand clothes. The result is a collection of diverse patterns and cuts made onto an array of blues, blacks and greens.

朱承康獲得由香港知專設計學院頒發的時裝設計及開發高級文憑,目前正就讀香港理工大 學時裝及 紡織設計系。他曾於多個著名本地時裝設計師工作室及品牌實習,包括何志恩及 G2000。 朱承康的「衣酷適再生時尚設計」2014/15 參 賽系列,靈感 源 於現代中國藝 術之父 吳 冠中及 其印象 派 畫 作。他結 合了零廢 棄、升級再造 及 重 新構 造 三種可持 續設 計技 術,以剩 布、布 料色板及 家人朋友的二手衣物作紡織 廢料,製作成一系列藍色、黑色及 綠色的多樣化圖樣 及剪裁。

認識朱承康

Who or what is your fashion inspiration? The Chinese contemporary artist, Wu Guanzhong inspired me to think about the concept of sustainable fashion. I believe that environmental protection is an art form.

你的時裝靈感從甚麼或誰人而來? 受中國當代藝 術家吳 冠中啟發,我開始思考可持續時裝。我相信 環保是種藝術。

Where do you go to get inspired? When I have free time I often visit exhibitions to feel inspired. One time while walking around, I stumbled across a Chinese contemporary art exhibition, which sparked an interest in Chinese art and culture. Since that moment I haven’t stopped turning to it for inspiration. What made you get into fashion? When I was in secondary school, I didn’t like my clothes and I lacked self-confidence. After some time I started to try to change my image by searching for my own style. At that time I became interested in fashion and I enrolled in fashion design courses so I could have a deeper understanding of the subject. Tell us one unusual fact about yourself. When I was younger I never thought that I would study fashion because I didn’t see a future in it and the salaries are often low. Finally after studying fashion design I chose to become a fashion designer. It’s really ironic how my feelings completely changed!

你從哪裡尋找靈感? 空閒時,我會參觀不同展覽汲取靈感。有次無意中遇到一個中國 當代藝 術展覽,令我產生 對中國藝 術及 文化的興趣,自此之後我 便不斷在這方面尋找靈感。 是甚麼令你投身時裝界? 我在中學時期並不 喜 歡自己所穿的衣 服,因此缺 乏自信。過了一 段日子,我開始尋 找自己的風 格,嘗試 改 變 形象。那時候我開始 對 時 裝 感 興 趣,參加了一 些 時 裝 設 計 課 程,以 加 深 對 時 裝的 認 識。 告訴我們一件關於你的與眾不同的事情。 年紀較小的時候,我從來沒想過要修讀時裝,因為我看不到它的 將來,而且收 入 通常較低。但修讀完時裝設計後,我立 志 成為一 名時裝設計師。這個 18 0 度的轉變真的很諷刺! 設計及製作可持續時裝的過程中,你最享受的是甚麼? 我十 分享受利 用被 遺 忘及 丟 棄的 布 料和衣物。創 作可持 續時裝 真的很令人滿足!

When the garments’ fabrics and workmanship are good and when I see the fabrics and garments all piled together, I am immediately motivated to start creating!

你的時裝靈感從甚麼或誰人而來? 從 最 新 的 科 技 產 品到古老的 藝 術品,很 多東 西都 能 給 我 靈 感; 我亦從書本中汲取創作靈感。但同時,廢棄衣物及布料也有很 大 的啟發 性。當衣 服的用料及手工良好,看到布料及衣物全 疊在一 起,我立即有動力開始創作!

Where do you go to get inspired? I enjoy going to art exhibitions, looking at travel photos and searching online for inspiration. What made you get into fashion? I’ve always loved the creativity of the fashion industry. More recently and backed with the financial securities provided by my earlier advertising job, I decided to follow my creative instincts and to pursue fashion design. I’m so happy that I am now following my dreams. Tell us one unusual fact about yourself. I love dressing up in fancy dress! Last year, my school organised an event and I dressed up as a plant, complete with a hat covered in insects and my daughter’s toys and socks!

What have you enjoyed most about designing and making sustainable fashion garments? I really enjoy using the simplest methods to transform unwanted garments into trendy and interesting fashion garments. For this, the most important thing for me is to deconstruct and then reconstruct every part of each garment using skilful design techniques.

Who or what is your fashion inspiration? I often take inspiration from my daily life, such as personal challenges or daily experiences like walking down the street and hearing all the noises around me. I like to reflect my personal feelings in my collections.

你的時裝靈感從甚麼或誰人而來? 我經常從日常生 活中取得靈感,例如個人挑 戰及日常經驗,像慢 步街頭、聆聽身邊所有聲音。我喜歡在系列中反映自己的感受。

Where do you go to get inspired? I go to places where I can walk slowly, breathe fresh air and just sit and look at beautiful surroundings. Tanjung Putus Island in Lampung, near my hometown, is beautiful because the water is really clear and there are few people there. Henderson Waves, the beautiful bridge in Singapore, is where I can enjoy a scenic skyline view. What made you get into fashion? I’ve loved doodling and drawing clothes since I was young. When I was a child my mother subscribed to cable television so we could watch the international television channels and I started to watch shows related to fashion. I then became intrigued by fashion and I wanted to learn more about it and so I decided to pursue fashion as my career. Tell us one unusual fact about yourself. I am a serious person. I hardly ever get other peoples’ jokes and I am not very good at telling my jokes myself! What have you enjoyed most about designing and making sustainable fashion garments? I really enjoy the process of designing and making sustainable fashion garments. Designing can be quite challenging. But after I have developed my concept, matching the colours, drafting the designs, sewing stripes and panels into my garments and getting the garment ready becomes very exciting. Plus through this competition I have gained more knowledge about how to make more sustainable designs. Every learning process is rewarding for me.

Who or what is your fashion inspiration? I’m quite emotional when it comes to finding my inspiration for my collections. My inspirations usually come from my own feelings or life experiences. Just like the painter, Frida Kahlo said, ‘I am the subject I know best’, I also believe that I am more successful by putting myself as the subject of my inspiration. Aside from this, I am also inspired by fashion designers, such as Yohji Yamamoto and Haider Ackermann.

你的時裝靈感從甚麼或誰人而來? 我經常從日常生 活中取得靈感,例如個人挑 戰及日常經驗,像慢 步街頭、聆聽身邊 所有聲音。我喜 歡在系列中反映自己的感受。 說 到 如 何 尋 找 設 計 靈 感 時,我 是 很 依 照 感 覺而走 的人。我 的 靈 感通常來自個人感受或生活經驗。就像畫家 Frida Kahlo 所說:「 我 最了解的事物 便 是自己」,所以我也 相信以自己作為靈感主題 時,作品會更成功。除此之外,我也深受時裝 Yohji Yamamoto 和 Haider Ackermann 所啟發。

Where do you go to get inspired? To feel inspired I prefer to stay in a comfortable and quiet place, like my own home, where there aren’t many people or where I’m completely alone. Here, I can enter my own private space to let my ideas flow through and start drawing. Sometimes I also like to visit coffee shops in Kuala Lumpur or in my hometown, Kuching with a friend or two so that we can talk about random subjects and this gives me varied inspirations. What made you get into fashion? I can’t remember exactly when my interest started as I have always wanted to make clothes for myself. Ages ago, I used to ask my mother to get leftover fabrics from her seamstress friend so that I could make clothes for my dolls; and when I was in secondary school, the only thing that I got good grades for was in Art! Tell us one unusual fact about yourself. I’m left-handed! What have you enjoyed most about designing and making sustainable fashion garments? Before entering The EcoChic Design Award, I hadn’t designed or created much sustainable fashion and so entering this competition has been a really great experience. I’ve liked working with the zerowaste design technique the most and it is very interesting to see how the fabrics can flow even though they are never cut.

你從哪裡尋找靈感? 要尋找靈感時,我更喜歡留在一個舒適和安靜的地方,就是我的 家,在 這裡不會 受其他人 影 響而我能夠 獨處,進 入自己的世界, 想 法不停湧現然後開始繪畫。有時候,我也喜 歡 跟一兩個好友, 去吉 隆坡 或 家 鄉古晉的咖 啡 館坐 坐,隨心地 聊聊 鎖事 都 能帶 給 了我不同的啟發。 是甚麼令你投身時裝界? 其實我也不太記得是什麼時候開始為自己製作衣 服。很多年前, 我開始從媽媽的裁縫朋友裡,取得剩布為洋娃娃製作衣服; 而 在我念中學時,我最好成績的科目就是美術了! 告訴我們一件關於你的與眾不同的事情。 我是左撇子! 設計及製作可持續時裝的過程中,你最享受的是甚麼? 在參加「衣 酷 適再生時尚設 計」前,我 未曾設 計 過可持 續時裝, 所以參加 比賽 是非常寶貴的 經 驗。我 最喜 歡 運 用零廢 棄設 計技 術,能夠看見布料將毫不浪費下造 成新設計是非常有趣。

Who or what is your fashion inspiration? My creative input always comes from finding beauty in the dirtiest, weirdest things that I then mix with a subtle touch of humour. For example, one of my favourite projects was inspired by organs and veins mixed with the Korean pop girlband Girl’s Generation.

你的時裝靈感從甚麼或誰人而來? 我的創 作 靈 感 通常 從 最 髒 最 奇 怪的東 西中找 到 美 麗 之 處,再加 一抹 幽 默 感。例如 我 最喜 歡 的其中一 個 項目的靈 感 是 來自內 臟 及 血管,以及韓國女子組合 Girl’s Generation。

Where do you go to get inspired? My sources of inspiration are never predictable for me. Inspiration can come from anywhere and this pushes me to stay on my toes. I spend hours walking around London to find inspiration and it usually comes from the places that I expect the least. What made you get into fashion? I got into fashion through the endless hours I spent playing with my sister and her dolls. I come from a tiny conservative village in Switzerland where boys and girls stick to their gender role expectations. However, as a creative child I spent most of my time around girls whom I used as my real life dolls! As a result, fashion is how I’ve chosen to express myself since my childhood. Tell us one unusual fact about yourself. I cannot taste some flavours as I have a geographic tongue. What have you enjoyed most about designing and making sustainable fashion garments? I enjoy seeing peoples’ impressions when they interact with my fabric manipulation samples, which are very aesthetically appealing and very tactile. People are impressed when I say that my pieces were weaved and constructed using Swiss army blankets and polyethylene, particularly Swiss army soldiers and colonels as they would have never thought that their blankets could have such a unique second life.

你從哪裡尋找靈感? 我的靈感來源難以預料。靈感可以從任 何地方湧現,所以我總是 不 斷 走 訪。我 會花 上 數小 時 在倫 敦 街 頭尋 找 靈 感,而 靈 感 總 在 最意想不到的地方出現。 是甚麼令你投身時裝界? 小 時候 我多數 陪 伴著我的妹 妹 玩洋 娃 娃。我來自瑞 士的小 村落 中,在 那 裡 男女 都 謹 守 其性 別 崗 位。但作 為 一 個 創 意 豐富的 小 孩,我大部份時間都伴 在女孩子身邊,她們就是我現實生 活中的 真人版洋娃娃!所以自小開始,時裝就成了自我表達方式。 告訴我們一件關於你的與眾不同的事情。 由於我有地圖舌(即遊走性舌炎),所以我嚐不到某些味道。 設計及製作可持續時裝的過程中,你最享受的是甚麼? 我享受看到別人 與 布料 樣 版 互 動 時的反 應。我的設 計充 滿美 感 和 觸感,當他們 知 道 是 用瑞 士軍用被 及 聚乙烯塑 膠 編 織 及 製作 而來的,他們都 很 驚訝。特別是瑞 士軍人,因為 他們從 沒想過他 們用過的被鋪能有這樣獨特的新生命。

‘I’m African and I was raised with two cultures and so it’s important for me to give back to my country what it gave to me. I want to do my best to help sustainable development, including sustainable fashion. This is because sustainable fashion creates jobs, conserves natural resources and thereby creates a closer relationship between politicians and citizens. An old French proverb says, ‘Everything is good in the pig’. This means when you kill a pig everything can be used and there is no waste. It’s the same for fashion. There is no waste, just fabrics awaiting a second wind to become an exceptional piece. Modern fashion needs this type of sustainable idea.’

「我是非洲人,自小在兩 種 文化影 響下成長。我希望能盡我所能回饋國家,著手幫助可持續發展,包括可持續時 裝。為什麼?因為可持續時裝創造就業機會,保護自然資源,進而促進政治家和公民之間更密切的關係 。法國諺 語有云:『 Everything is good in the pig』,意思指一頭豬無一不是寶,統統都能物盡其用,沒有任何浪費。時裝亦 然,所有布料都在等待被設計師加以運用,變成華衣美服,綻 放光芒。現代時裝正正需要這種可持續發展理念。 」 Noëlla is currently working as a junior fashion designer while developing her own brand, Norst. She has an Environment and Fashion Design degree from École de Condé in Nancy, France. Noëlla draws on the mythological Chinese icon Nuwa, a half-woman and half-snake Goddess, for inspiration for her The EcoChic Design Award 2014/15 collection. Noëlla used the sustainable design techniques of up-cycling and reconstruction onto her textile waste source, comprising leftover African textiles and end-of-roll textiles sourced from French markets and secondhand clothing.

Who or what is your fashion inspiration? People! Maybe it’s cliché to say that but my first inspiration is the people I meet during my travels in Africa, Asia and France. I love observing and trying to understand why and how people choose and wear their clothing. I also collect many pictures. Then I imagine a story and I begin to design. I really like the artist Walter Van Beirendonck’s work as it’s bizarre, colourful and so interesting. Finally, a dance movement, a romantic movie or music can inspire me.

你的時裝靈感從甚麼或誰人而來? 人!也 許 這 麼 說 比 較 陳 腔 濫 調,不 過 我 的首個 靈 感 的 確 來自我 於 非 洲、亞 洲及 法 國 旅 行 時 遇 到 的人。我喜 歡 觀 察 及嘗 試 理 解 人們 為 甚麼 及 如 何 選擇及 穿著 他們 的衣物。另外我也習慣收 集 不同圖片,然後幻想一個故事,再開始設計。我十分喜 歡藝 術 家 Walter Van Beirendonck,因為他的作品奇異、繽紛,十分有 趣。最後,一個舞姿、一齣電影或一首樂曲都能帶給我靈感。

Where do you go to get inspired? My parents’ house in North West France, which is a peaceful and relaxing little paradise, is perfect to get inspired and be creative. Otherwise, I love visiting places, like Georges Pompidou Center and Champs Elysées, and strolling along Parisian streets. There are so many different people with such different looks, opinions and religions and so the street itself is a wonderful and inspirational scene. What made you get into fashion? When I was younger, I liked to see the joy and the reaction from people when they chose the right outfit or shoes and so fashion has always intrigued me. I realised that fashion would be my salvation because it was not evident to me before how else to express my creativity in a family where my parents are doctors. With time and patience I followed my own journey. Tell us one unusual fact about yourself. I create miracles in a short time and I’m really determined when I want something! For example, for The EcoChic Design Award I only saw the announcement five days before the competition’s deadline, which led to five days and nights of creating and submitting. This is not the first time I have been in this kind of situation. It’s funny, I must have a big lucky star looking over me.

你從哪裡尋找靈感? 我 父 母 住在 法 國的西 北部,那 裡 是 個 平靜 悠閒的人 間小天 堂, 帶 給我很多靈感和創意。另外,我亦喜 歡 到處 遊 覽,像 龐畢度中 心、香 榭里舍 大 道等,或 是 慢 步 巴黎 街 頭。不同的人,不同的 外 表、意 見 及信仰,大 街小 巷 本身就 是 一 個 奇 妙 和 啟 發人心 的 地 方。 是甚麼令你投身時裝界? 自小 我已喜 歡 看 到 人 選 對了衣 物 或 鞋 子 時的 喜悅 和反 應,所以 時裝一直讓我感興趣。我的父母都是醫生,我並不懂得怎樣向家 人表達我的創意,所以我認為時裝是我的救 贖。時間和耐性令我 走出自己的路。 告訴我們一件關於你的與眾不同的事情。 我能於短時間創造出奇蹟,而且想得到某些東西時,我會無比堅 毅!比如說,我在「衣 酷 適再生時尚設 計」截 止報名前五 天才看 到廣告,於是我在五天內以繼夜地創作及提交。這不是我第一次 遇到的事了,真有趣,我肯定幸運之神一直眷顧著我。 設計及製作可持續時裝的過程中,你最享受的是甚麼? 我十 分享受利 用時 裝 廢 料 進行 創 作,例如 我們 通常 會丟 棄的剩 布及 損 壞了的 紡織 品。為 時 裝 廢 料 賦 以 新生命 和 新 機會 給 我很 大的滿足感,亦給我機會利用平時少用的新物料作 試 驗,像我那 塊舊的塑膠檯布。

What have you enjoyed most about designing and making sustainable fashion garments? I really enjoy using fashion waste, such as end-of-roll and damaged textiles, which we normally throw away. But giving fashion waste a second life and a new chance is very pleasing. It also allowed me to experiment with using new materials, which I don’t usually use in my work, like my old PVC table cover.

Denmark Finalist 丹麥總決賽者

‘Fashion is both a fun and necessary industry that brings joy and personality to a lot of people. However, the production of fashion has exploded rapidly and many people are not aware of the effects that our everyday life and fashion consumption has on millions of people, animals and on the environment. I want to be a sustainable fashion designer to inspire people to live a more conscious life without compromise. For me, this means using our resources in the best way possible and not compromising the future generation’s ability to meet their needs.’

「時裝是個必需而充滿樂趣的行業,為很多人帶來歡樂及風格。可是,時裝生產正急促爆炸,而很多人都不察覺我 們的日常生活及時裝消費對數百萬人、動物及環境的影 響。我希望成為可持續時裝設計師,啟發他人在不妥協的 大前提下,選擇一個更 負責任的生活方式。對我來說,這代表著以最好的方法善用資源,不會利用未來的能力來 滿足今日的需要。」

Kirstine is currently studying Design and Business, specialising in Sustainable Fashion, at KEA Copenhagen School of Design and Technology in Denmark. She has previously interned for renowned sustainable fashion designer, Christopher Raeburn. Kirstine explores the ancient Chinese symbol of Yin and Yang in her slow-fashion inspired The EcoChic Design Award 2014/15 collection. Kirstine combines the up-cycling and reconstruction sustainable design techniques on her textile waste source of secondhand knitwear, onto which she applied vintage doilies. The result is a collection of contrasting lights and dark in various shapes and silhouettes. Kirstine 正 於丹麥的 KEA 哥本哈根設計與科技學院 ( KEA Copenhagen School of Design and Technology) 修讀設計及工商學,專修可持續時裝。她曾跟隨著名的可持續時裝設計師 Christopher Raeburn 實習。 Kirstine 的「衣酷適再生時尚設計」2014/15 參賽系列,靈感源於 慢時裝,融入了中國古代的

Who or what is your fashion inspiration? I’m very inspired by Alexander McQueen and the creative world he created. I’m also inspired by historic eras, in particular the Victorian and Edwardian eras.

你的時裝靈感從甚麼或誰人而來? 我深受 Alexander McQueen 及他創造的創意世界所啟發,亦從 歷 史世代中得到不少靈感,特別是維多利亞及愛德華時代。

Where do you go to get inspired? My favourite places for inspiration are nature and museums. When I’m in nature, I take lots of pictures of what I find interesting and unique and I keep these photos for future inspiration. What made you get into fashion? When I first started fashion school I found the whole industry very superficial. But when I learned about the work behind a collection and the issues the industry faces, I realised that the fashion industry was a place where I could develop my creative skills and passion and at the same time try to make a difference. Tell us one unusual fact about yourself. Before deciding to go into fashion, I wanted to be an archeologist or cartoonist. Between studying at two different fashion schools I spent a year in the Danish military where I learnt a lot about my own abilities. What have you enjoyed most about designing and making sustainable fashion garments? I’ve really enjoyed the challenge of the work itself. In every sustainable fashion project I do, I am improving my skillset because I cannot think conventionally and so I have to find other creative solutions. Working in fashion from a sustainable angle is what keeps me driven. You could say it is my way of trying to change the world and making it better.

你從哪裡尋找靈感? 我 最喜 歡 到 大自然 及博 物 館 尋 找 靈 感。我拍下很 多有關 大自然 的照片,把我認為有趣及獨特的都記錄下來,將來作靈感之泉。 是甚麼令你投身時裝界? 剛進時裝學院的時候,我覺得時裝很表面,但當我了解到一個系列 背後的刻苦工作,以及時裝界面對的問題時,我發現時裝界會是一 個能夠讓我發展創意及熱情的地方,並嘗試改變它的不足之處。 告訴我們一件關於你的與眾不同的事情。 決 定投身時裝界之前,我曾希望當考古學家或漫 畫家。在兩間不 同的時裝學 院修讀 期間,我在丹 麥軍隊待了一年,對自己的能力 認識更深。 設計及製作可持續時裝的過程中,你最享受的是甚麼? 我十分享受創作過程中面對的挑戰。每開始一個新的可持續時裝 項目都是我進步的機會,因為我不能依傳統的思路 去思考,所以 必須尋找其他創新的解決方法。在可持續的角度從事時裝業給予 我很大的動力,可以說是我嘗試改變世界、令世界變得更美好。

BONNIE 陳

C H E N From runway model to role model

從模特兒變成模範榜樣

onnie Chen is a wanted woman. The face of Ralph Lauren, Shanghai Tang and Saks Fifth Avenue, Bonnie’s striking image is plastered across billboards and is printed on magazine covers worldwide. A former China rhythmic champion, a psychology graduate from the University of Pennsylvania, and with various charity projects on the go, we simply can’t help being in love (and in awe) with Bonnie. Despite her jam-packed sparkling schedule of jetting from photoshoots to fashion shows from her bases in New York, Hong Kong and Nanjing, we managed to sit down with the fashion world’s darling during her The EcoChic Design Award 2014/15 finalists’ photoshoot at The Langham, Hong Kong. Here Bonnie, who is our The EcoChic Design Award 2014/15 Ambassador and one of the biggest Chinese personalities supporting sustainable fashion, shares with us her own wants.

陳碧舸( Bonnie Chen ) 是許多國際頂尖品牌如 Ralph Lauren,上海灘,Saks Fifth Avenue 的寵兒,這張漂亮面孔經常出現在國際雜誌封面和 廣告板 上。身為前中國藝術體操運 動員,擁有賓夕法尼亞 大學心 理學系學位,同時肩負著出席各項慈善項目的任務,叫我們怎能不從心底 裡艷羨她的天賦和善心。Bonnie 的時裝秀和拍攝工作排得密麻麻的,經常穿梭紐約,香港與南京之間,我們終於有機會與她在香港朗延 酒店-「衣酷適再生時尚設計」2014/15 總決賽者時尚拍攝現場碰面,了解這位「衣酷適再生時尚設計」2014/15 大使在光鮮亮麗的時髦外貌 背後,與我們分享她的可持續想法。

How and why did you become an Ambassador for The EcoChic Design Award? I heard about Redress and The EcoChic Design Award through my friend, Hong Kong stylist Denise Ho. Like me, we both play creative roles in stimulating consumers’ desire for fashion. Like her, I also want to use my fashion influence to send positive messages about sustainability and waste reduction to consumers because of my inner desires for a better fashion industry that’s less polluting. My desires are partly driven because of my psychology education, which equipped me with the intellectual framework and inquisitive tenacity to question the world around me and to act in areas where I feel passionate. How has working on the inside of the industry changed your view of sustainability? I’ve always valued sustainability in general. However, my interest in sustainability in the fashion industry increased since having worked on the inside of the industry as a model. Here, I’ve witnessed the continued

speeding up of the industry and with this a growing trend for fashion consumption, all of which contributes to clothing and textile wastage and enormous negative environmental impacts. Do fashion designers play an influential role in reducing textile waste? Since supporting Redress, I’ve discovered that designers influence around 80 to 90 percent of the environmental and economic impact of a product, which underlines how important designers are in driving the industry’s much-needed sustainability shift. This is why competitions like The EcoChic Design Award are so important because we need to educate emerging fashion designers to be more sustainable, whilst still designing stylishly. People often think that sustainable fashion can’t be stylish but looking at the garments around me today on the photoshoot, I’m seeing the opposite. There is no style-compromise when it comes to the finalists’ sustainable creations.

Feature


Growing up and living in China do you see an interest from Chinese people in sustainable fashion? I have witnessed a huge change in China’s environment. The air is now more polluted, we have scarce clean fresh water supplies and rising health issues, all of which seem to have been exasperated by China’s rampant manufacturing across many industrial sectors. Because of this, Chinese people are becoming more aware of the impacts surrounding pollution on their health and the environment; and they are hoping for change. I think the sustainable fashion agenda will only continue to grow in China and I hope to see some great emerging design talent coming from China in the competition this year. How do you embody sustainable values into your daily life? The longer I work as a model, the less desire I have to follow new fashion trends. I’m now a huge fan of vintage and secondhand clothes and I even launched my own secondhand clothing charity sale, called Star Bunny Love, to raise funds for autistic children in China. More and more people are attending my charity sales and are enjoying the growing trend of mixing new luxury with secondhand items. Through this experience, I ultimately believe that people working in fashion should use their influence in various ways and become role models to inspire consumers about how to value their clothing more.

你是怎樣和為什麼會成為「衣酷適再生時尚設計」的大使? 我是透過香港造型師朋友 Denise Ho 而認識 Redress 以及「衣酷適再生時尚設計」。我們 兩人同時在時裝界工作,透過自己的專業和創意激發消費者熱愛時尚。我們同樣希望以 自己在業內的影響力,發放更多有關可持續時裝的正面訊息,教育消費者減少浪費,共 同創建一個更美好,更少浪費的時裝業。求變的慾望某程度上源於受過心理學教育的影 響,我所學習到的知識和對世界的好奇心驅使,一直推動我,在我熱愛的可持續時裝領 域下求變。 在時裝業內工作怎樣改變你對可持續發展的看法? 我一直重視可持續發展。但我對時裝界的可持續發展越來越有興趣,是在我成為模特兒 之後。在業內工作,我親眼見證了時裝業的急速發展和消費增長,不但造成時裝和紡織 廢料的浪費,更對環境造成極大的負面影響。 時裝設計師在減少紡織浪費上擔當著重要的角色嗎? 自支持 Redress 的工作後,我明白到設計師的決定影響著產品對環境及經濟所造成的 80-90% 影 響,這顯示出設計師在推動行業的可持續轉變,擔當著舉足輕重的角色。進一步證明了「衣酷 適再生時尚設計」是非常重要,因為我們需要教育新晉時裝設計師在創出時尚設計的同時,兼 顧可持續性。人們通常認為可持續時裝談不上時尚,但當我親眼看到總決賽者的入圍作品,我 卻有了不一樣的看法,他們的設計絕同時兼具風格與可持續性。 在中國成長,你認為中國人對於可持續時裝有興趣嗎? 我親眼目睹了中國環境的巨大變化。嚴重空氣污染,缺乏清潔食水,人民的健康問題不 斷上升,所有問題都源於中國不同工業的猖獗發展。正因如此,中國人越來越關注環境 污染對健康造成的影響,而他們都希望改變。所以我認為可持續時裝會繼續在中國成長 綻放,我希望在不久將來能看到更多中國新晉設計人才的良性競爭。 你怎樣從日常生活中體現可持續價值? 隨著我擔任模特兒的時間越久,我對於追隨潮流的慾望反而越來越少。我現在迷上了二 手古著,更創立了二手衣服義賣活動「星星兔子和愛」來為中國自閉症兒童籌款。越來 越多人參加我的慈善義賣,並享受將二手單品與奢侈品互相搭配。這次經驗令我深信不 同人可以透過各自的工作和專業,利用自身的影響力並成為榜樣,激發更多消費者了解 衣服背後的價值。人可以透過各自的工作和專業,利用自身的影響力並成為榜樣,激發 更多消費者了解衣服背後的價值。 Photo Credit: Raul Docasar, Designer: Karen Jessen

Set against a backdrop of picturesque paddy fields and billowing bamboo, Louise experienced first-hand how John Hardy incorporates environmental and social sustainability into the core of their design, production and business philosophies. Louise was particularly motivated by John Hardy’s use of recycled metals within their luxurious, global brand. ‘I think it’s very inspiring because there are so many ways to incorporate this same recycling philosophy into the fashion industry. I now wish to improve my use of recycled fibres, as well as my recycled fabrics, in my future collections,’ she said.

A breeding ground for

SUSTAINABLE SUCCESS 成功孕育可持續時尚的搖籃 Words by Christina Dean 由丁潔絲撰寫 Photo Credit: Hong Kong Trade Development Council

F

rom modest beginnings - when sustainable fashion was considered a niche - we have now matured and with five competition cycles under our belt, we have now released a pool of enlightened designers into the

fashion industry. Since launching in Hong Kong in 2011, The EcoChic Design Award then expanded to include Asian and European designers. And along with its broadening geographic reach, we’ve also deepened our impact as we create an army of designers inspired to change the future of fashion. Through the competition’s educational outreach, we have reached thousands of emerging designers around the world, of which 55 became semi-finalists and finalists and with this the opportunity to become our alumni. We are witnessing how the competition is proving to be a breading ground for sustainable fashion innovation and now seeing the competition’s broader legacy deepen as our alumni’s visions and sustainable brands continue thriving. To grow this, we continue to work closely with our alumni by providing them with mentorships, internships, PR support and retail opportunities so that we foster their success - and ultimately the growth of sustainable fashion. Our alumni share our conviction that sustainable fashion can be a norm and not a niche as they confidently and creatively re-design waste out of the fashion industry. Their sustainable brand identities are born out of their desire to reduce textile waste, allowing them to put their hard-earned competition educational experience into action as they unleash their sustainable brands into the market. Each of their actions signifies a small but seismic shift in emerging designers’ DNA and each sketch or garment is proof of their cutting-edge creativity. Their actions are also reaching the mainstream fashion stage as collectively our alumni continue gaining exposure from Beijing to Brighton, wooing and wowing buyers, media and consumers alike. Many of our Hong Kong alumni have launched their own sustainable fashion brands, such as Janko Lam’s ‘Classics Anew’, Kelvin Wan’s ‘Wan & Wong Fashion’, Eric Wong’s ‘Absurd Laboratory’ and Angus Tsui´s namesake brand. Four of our Hong Kong alumni presented their sustainable brands to buyers at HKTDC Fashion Week A/W 2015 and collaborated with Yahoo Hong Kong on the sale of limited-edition up-cycled accessories. Several others have been featured on TV or contributed to high-profile fashion shoots in Asia’s top media publications, such as SCMP and Modern Weekly. Our alumni have taken center stage at fashion shows and exhibitions at London’s Estethica, Berlin’s the GREENshowroom, Brighton and Hong Kong Fashion Weeks and Beijing Design Week. Elsewhere, their designs are enjoying a bigger retail distribution - having hit top department stores around the world such as Beams, Joyce and Collette - along with a bigger fan base - even celebrities including Sandy Lam, Bonnie Chen and Eunis Chan have been spotted wearing them. Collectively, these sustainable success stories are proving the contagious and lasting legacy of the competition and they also demonstrate that sustainable fashion is becoming the norm.


“Our alumni are gaining exposure from Beijing to Brighton”

回望當初,在可持續時裝還被認為是個小眾潮流時,我們己經踏入第五屆 比賽週期,經歷成長並擁有一班具潛能的設計師。 自比賽於 2011 年首辦以來,「衣酷適再生時尚設計」已擴展至包括亞洲和 歐洲設計師。隨著版圖擴展,比賽的影響亦不斷滲透,因比賽將一眾時裝 設計師集合起來組成軍團,為時裝界未來打拼。透過比賽教育,我們接觸 到過千名新晉設計師,其中 55 位成為準決賽者及總決賽者,最終成為歷 屆參賽者。 我們見證著比賽所引起的廣泛影響,歷屆參賽者正在蓬勃發展,證明這是 孕育可持續時裝創意的重要搖籃。我們透過指導和實習計劃、公關支援及 零售機會,繼續與歷屆參賽者緊密合作,培育和幫助他們在可持續時裝方 面發展並取得成功。 歷屆參賽者與我們同樣堅信可持續時裝能跳出小眾成為主流。他們以自信 和創意,善用紡織廢料,重新設計時尚界的未來。歷屆參賽者親手建立可 持續的品牌,表明了他們減少時尚浪費的願望,將從比賽中吸取的經驗轉 化為實戰機會,讓他們發揮所長,將可持續品牌引入市場。每一個微小轉變 其實影響深遠,每一幅草圖和作品,都是他們頂尖創意的證明。 他們以行動打進主流時裝舞台,我們的歷屆參賽者從北京到布萊頓都取得 曝光機會,得到買家,媒體和消費者的一致好評和愛戴。 許多香港歷屆參賽者相繼推出個人可持續時裝品牌,如林春菊的 Classics Anew,溫嘉恆的 Wan & Wong Fashion,王偉駿的 Absurd Laboratory,徐逸

昇同名品牌 Angus Tsui。這四位歷屆參賽者於香港貿發局時裝週秋冬 2015 向買家展出可持續品牌,與雅虎香港合作推出限量升級再造飾品。其中幾 位更登上電視大銀幕,曾被亞洲頂尖媒體南華早報和週末畫報報導。他們 亦被展示於 Estethica , GREENshowroom ,布萊頓時裝展和北京國際設 計週的時裝舞台,他們的設計亦登陸在世界向地高級百貨公司,包括 Beams, Joyce , Collette ,更成為一眾名人如林憶蓮、陳碧舸以至陳嘉容的焦點 。 一個個可持續發展的成功故事,不單證明比賽的影響力和傳奇性,同時以事實證明 可持續時裝將會成為主流焦點。

elebrity artist Kary Ng is one of Hong Kong’s hottest stars. The youngest recipient ever to have earned a Commercial Radio Hong Kong music award at just 16 years of age, a member of several successful pop and rock bands with currently 12 albums under her belt, Kary continues to dominate the charts and hearts of Hong Kong and further afield. And now she turns the attention away from the charts and places the spotlight onto our alumni. Kary has chosen her favourite alumni from all our previous finalists and semi-finalists, the winner will reconstruct Kary’s own unwanted garments from her personal wardrobe into a ‘new’ stylish and sustainable garment. Why did you get involved in The EcoChic Design Award? I’ve always loved fashion yet I believe that as global citizens we should integrate our aspirations for a healthier environment into what we wear. As someone in the public eye there is a pressure to keep a fresh image and I wish I had opportunities to wear some of my favourite pieces more. It’s such a waste not to! This is why I want to work with my favourite The EcoChic Design Award Alumni so that together we can transform clothes that I no longer wear into a sustainable chic showcase!

How do you embody sustainable values in your daily life? When it comes to fashion, I try not to buy a lot of new clothes and my mother always helps me to donate my old clothes. I think sometimes living sustainably in Hong Kong can be hard because Hong Kong is such a hectic, fast paced city and everything here is about convenience. But I think the broader Hong Kong population has sustainability in mind now.
