“I was trained for a conventional high street fashion designer career path but eventually found myself unfulfilled by shallow design concepts and lack of playfulness in the design process - the parts I enjoyed doing the most. Sustainable fashion design provides all sorts of relevant challenges that give purpose to what I am doing”. - Zsófia Tátrai
redress Design Award Collection
Inspired by the parks and green oases in urban environments, Zsófia’s competition collection ‘Craving Nature’ focuses on traditional craftsmanship and timelessness through classic silhouettes. Zsófia combines up-cycled damaged yarns and secondhand knitwear, re-spinning them to create new stronger yarn that through knitting and handweaving creates zero-waste pieces, which she combines with secondhand garments.
