Our graduate, who currently works as a freelance fashion designer and art director, participates in this sustainable fashion contest with "Avatar's Deconstruction", a proposal inspired by the parallel realities generated by the evolution of the Internet (both in digital art and through how we relate to others through avatars) which create the possibility of deceiving the spectator. She applies up-cycling and zero-waste design techniques to industry waste, including silicone and rubber, embellishing through origami techniques, as well as hand painting, embroidery, felting and needle-punching to create her expressive collection.
The alumni (also semi-finalist in 2017 edition) says on the Redress Design Award website: "I love creating fashion, and it leaves a much nicer feeling knowing that what I produce could leave positive footprints, instead of contributing to the mountain of waste and exploitation of the earth and humans that the current industry supports". Congratulations and good luck, Lucia!
Both students of Bachelor's Degree in Fashion Design, who have just handed in their final year projects, will be at the grand finale of the contest organized by the interlinings company Freudenberg.
