Leeds fashion student Harriet McHugh was inspired by the festival season, for her graduate collection show. Using discarded tents as material for her work, Harriet used her passion for sustainability to create an innovative street wear look for both men and women.
The aim of the collection was to shed light on waste and recycling, to “focus on fixing rather than throwing away”, and to show how zero waste design can be achieved in a fun and forward-thinking way.
“The use of residual items, in this case, reclaimed tents, has informed colour, pattern, silhouette, detail & functionality through a capsule range of uni-gender outerwear & accessories.”
This is a great example of how slow fashion can really push boundaries and show the potential and endless opportunities ethical design has to offer. We say watch this space!
