Gao Qing zi
The EcoChic Design Award 2017 HONG KONG BEST WINNER
Gao Qing Zi is a semi-finalist of the EcoChic Design Award 2017. She is currently studying Fashion and Textile design at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University.
Fashion does not have to be an environmental burden and I believe positive change is happening. As a designer, I want to create fashion that is sustainable and serves every individual, as opposed to creating high end labels of excessiveness to serve a privileged few. - Gao Qing Zi

For her EcoChic Design Award application, Qing Zi utilises up-cycling and reconstruction techniques to transform textile swatches, damaged textiles and secondhand clothing. She is inspired by the fear of ageing by young generations, and has a desire to demonstrate that fashion sense and style is timeless.
