redress Design Award 2015/16 FINALIST
Annie is currently studying Fashion Design Womenswear at Central Saint Martins in the UK. She has previously interned for Claire Barrow and The Autonomous Collections.
I am against the stigma that sustainable garments need to be plain, practical or simple. I want to be a sustainable fashion designer to raise awareness and change the way people think about consumption and waste. - Annie Mackinnon
Redress Design Award Collection
For her collection, Annie was inspired by Matisse’s cut-out technique and applied this process by reintegrating scraps from luxury garments into her collection through collage. She combined zero-waste and up-cycling design techniques using secondhand and end-of- roll textiles, sourced from textile stores, markets and charity shops in the UK.
