Fashion has a huge influence on the whole world. We know there are a lot of ugly things connected to fashion but most of us cannot live without it. I want to erase all those ugly things and make fashion as beautiful as it should be - something that not only brings joy to those who 'use' it, but also to those who make it. The world is slowly moving in the direction of transferring the entire fashion into sustainable one, and I believe one day it will be a must. I want to be among the first to bring change. - Bojana Draca
redress Design Award collection
For her Redress Design Award (formerly the EcoChic Design Award)collection, Bojana was inspired by the ''ghost stations'' in Berlin from the Cold War, and she applied the up-cycling and zero-waste design techniques using leftover fabrics.
