「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.
