‘Thinking about the negative impacts that the fashion industry has and the positive power that we designers have in reducing pollution makes me want to be a sustainable designer. At first, sustainable fashion was challenging for me, but I’m now really enjoying it after learning how great sustainable design techniques and fabrics can be.’

「想到時裝界對環境造成的負面影響,以及我們作為設計師所擁有的減少污染的能力,令我希望成為可持續設計 師。起初的時候,可持續時裝對我來說比較困難,但知道可持續設計技巧及布料有多了不起後,現在的我十分享受 設計可持續時裝。」

Veronica recently graduated with a Fashion Design degree from Raffles Design Institute in Singapore. Previously, she worked as an assistant to the Malaysian couture designer, Jovian Mandagie.
