From what I have experienced of the fashion business, I know that we cannot continue without sustainable thinking and I want to be part of the change! I don’t believe there is a long future in fashion manufacturing as we know it now. My passion is to work with engineers and mathematicians to find new innovative solutions to create fashion. - Ester Soidla

redress Design Award Collection

Ester’s Redress Design Award submission is inspired by revolutionary abstract artists. She up-cycles end-of-roll textiles, exploring alternative ways to traditional patternmaking and body-following shapes. The zero-waste, unisex, sizeless collection can be worn multiple ways and draws from origami in a modern take on the traditional kimono.
