redress Design Award Collection
For her Redress Design Award Collection ‘Anna meets X’, Anna is influenced by what surrounds her as a designer, taking inspiration from other ‘maker’s’ disciplines through the discovery of crafts such as crochet, repair and patchworking. She applies zero-waste, up-cycling and reconstruction techniques to manipulate various types of surplus, damaged and stained textile waste and yarns into her contemporary menswear collection.
