Anything and everything that involves sustainable fashion.
About me / About business or organisation:
I am a 3rd year fashion design student studying at UCA Rochester, currently beginning the design process for my final collection. The collection will be made entirely from environmentally friendly materials. I have chosen to make a sustainable collection because I fear for the planet and the life we are leaving for our future generations; this is something I have always felt extremely passionate about; and is what I see myself doing in the future. I am seeking a fashion house or designers who can assist me in supplying any unwanted cloth.
I am using every aspect of my final year to raise awareness and to show people that there is a more sustainable side to fashion; all of my sketchbooks and research folders have been and will be made from recycled materials; my dissertation titled ‘Is Ethical Fashion Just a Passing trend’ is also allowing me to explore the sustainable fashion industry.
I have attached two images, one of me in a dress that I made in my second year at university, which was used in a shoot by a final year promotions student for their final major. The other is one of my 'eco sketchbooks' in the making, which is made from an old book bought from a boot fair and 3 hours of McDonalds waste that was headed for the bin.
Any fashion houses or designers who are able to help me will be mentioned in my final collection; and I am more than happy to keep you updated with my collection to see that your unwanted fabrics are being put to good use. I will also do all that I can in the future to repay their kindness in assisting me with my endeavours.
Thank you for taking time to read my letter and I look forward to hearing from you in the near future.
