Redress Design Award Magazine, Sep 2019
Tess’ collection for The R Collective represents another big step forward in catalysing a circular fashion system that avoids the need to create virgin materials.
Tess’ Avoidance collection, which retailed at Lane Crawford, looks to be the first of many inspiring collaboration between The R Collective and Redress Design Award Alumni, which continued earlier this year with ‘Rinse’, a capsule range by 2015/2016 finalist Wen Pan. Seven pieces, created in limited quantities using rescued excess luxury fabrics, were inspired by ideas of beauty in imperfection and the stories our wardrobes tell.
“Rinse’ shows that you don't need to make allowed statements to support sustainable fashion. When women wear pieces from my collection, they can feel a strong pride and inner confidence” says Wen.
