redress Design Award Collection
For her Redress Design Award submission, Seerat aims to inspire and influence consumers to reuse and repurpose their clothes by creating a contrast to today’s fast-paced fashion industry. Her designs are multifaceted, and include removable parts that can be interchanged across the collection. Applying the design techniques of zero-waste and up-cycling to silk organza and repurposed trims and threads, Seerat embraces handcrafted detailing and fabric manipulation techniques in her designs.
