"I’m extremely excited about the new wave of sustainable fashion designers coming up, particularly in Asia, which Redress is nurturing through the EcoChic Design Award. These emerging designers are changing their design palettes by adopting more sustainable design practices and by up-cycling textile waste. For me, it’s a breath of fresh air to witness the new creativity and innovation in sustainable design coming from the younger generation. This is why I support the competition, because I want to do what I can to promote and enhance emerging sustainable fashion designers’ careers through raising the profile of their work."
