redress Design Award Collection
Alina’s Redress Design Award collection is inspired by René Magritte’s ‘The Lovers’ paintings, in which sheer shrouds of fabric juxtapose a sense of isolation and tenderness between the lovers. She up-cycles surplus and secondhand yarns from a variety of sources, creating zero-waste knitted designs embellished with embroidery and knitted trims.
