redress Design Award Collection
Every piece of clothing tells its own story. This is the inspiration behind Julia’s Redress Design Award collection, ‘Worn Well’. She applies the design techniques of up-cycling, reconstruction and zero-waste to a variety of textile waste and secondhand clothing, creating oversized, layered pieces that aim to bring the wearer in as a co-creator of an ever shifting garment, in order to build strong emotional attachments and increase functionality and longevity.
