Xie Meng Si is a semi-finalist of the EcoChic Design Award 2017. She currently studies fashion design at the Guangdong University of Technology in Guangzhou, Mainland China.
I believe sustainable fashion design can reduce the burden on our living environment. Giving new life to abandoned things with our hands, so that they are re-accepted by others is a very interesting concept for me and something I aim to bring to my work. - Xie Meng Si
