Sustainability provides me with abundant creative inspiration and I believe there are no limits. As artisanal skills are to haute couture and the luxury industry, I believe that sustainability can also provide a form of wearable art, whilst acting as a messenger to highlight our environmental and social responsibilities. I would like to become an influential fashion designer whose thoughtful and expressive works lead the global world to change. - Mimi Jeong
redress Design Award Collection
Mimi’s Redress Design Award submission is inspired by the works of Catalan architect, Antoni Gaudi, which is reflected in her use of vibrant colour and the embodiment of the artist’s signature mosaic designs. She up-cycles a variety of textiles including swatches and cut-and-sew waste for a collection full of sculptural form.
