“Being constrained to use what is already in existence in my designs not only minimises my carbon footprint and slows down the flow of materials, it is also a fulfilling approach for me personally, as I find imperfection beautiful”. - Julia Talita Pagenkopf
redress Design Award Collection
Julia Talita's collection ‘Inside Outside’ is inspired by the Japanese Wabi-Sabi concept - seeing beauty in imperfection. Designed with intelligent and fierce women in mind who are open to finding power in vulnerability, Julia applies the reconstruction design technique, merging secondhand garments - made from low-impact materials with end-of-life recycling in mind - in floral prints and vibrant colours to highlight their contrasts.
