THE REDRESS FORUM
The Redress Forum 2014 was a two-day seminar held on 13 and 14 January in Hong Kong that asked ‘What is the future of the fashion industry?’
The Redress Forum: Design Challenge with Miele On day one, the eight The EcoChic Design Award finalists and ten local Hong Kong designers were challenged to address sustainable consumer care through their design choices looking at the sustainability, usability and recyclability of clothing. Together with Miele and UK’s Textile Environmental Design, participants ‘re-designed’ discarded clothes sourced from a giant used clothing recycling warehouse. Watch the summary video
