redress Design Award Collection
Denitsa’s competition collection ‘Heroine’ is inspired by the strong women that have shaped her life. Up-cycled and reconstructed from natural fabrics sourced from a local garment factory, together with fabric swatches and secondhand jeans, all of Denitsa’s garments are designed using the zero-waste technique. In addition to this she focuses on details such as expandable panels, belts and multiple buttonhole rows to allow each garment to be worn by different sizes in order to eliminate the waste generated in size grading.
