Contemporary fashion can reflect the past.
ECU Contemporary Fashion student eco designs include repurposed tablecloths, reworked woven cloth, hand-printed natural dyes and zero-waste cutting methods.
However, Course Coordinator Justine McKnight says creating sustainable fashion is not just about using recycled or repurposed materials.
“It’s about the attitude to the making process, with attention to detail and a focus on well-made garments that will last,” McKnight says.
“Many of our students go on to do their own collections and are fully aware of being sustainable, it’s not just about the environment but, economically, it also makes sense not to waste materials.”
