“The excessive waste I have witnessed that is created throughout the fashion industry drives me to be a sustainable designer. From high-end brands using only the most beautiful part of materials during lay planning through to fast fashion labels creating waste through production inefficiency, it’s all saddening to see”. - Yu Yiting
redress Design Award Collection
Yiting’s Redress Design collection ‘Blue Tears’, is named after the Chinese translation of microplastics - ‘tears of a mermaid’. She was influenced by the extensive pollution of our oceans from microfibres in our clothing and the damage it is causing. Yiting applies reconstruction and up-cycling to secondhand clothing and industry surplus textiles.
