Australian designer Tess Whitfort brings her trademark streetwear edge and groundbreaking zero waste pattern techniques, which had seasoned designers and manufacturers spellbound, into the heart of The R Collective with the release of her much-anticipated 'Avoidance' Collection.
Start From Zero is perhaps the perfect place to start curating your conscious closet. We created our inaugural eight-piece collection to satisfy what we, with our many years in fashion and our passion for sustainable fashion, believe will be your core wardrobe essentials.
Israeli designer, Lia Kassif loves juxtaposition. And that is just the impression she leaves on you. Her serene smile contrasts her steel backbone; her powerful force outpunches her petite frame; and her tomboy presence feels at odds with her soft femininity. But it is in her fashion design that her love of contrasting effects really comes to life. And nowhere is this more evident than in her Military Collection, which juxtaposes upcycled military waste combined with discreet upcycled bridalwear waste.
Kate Morris is the star sustainable designer winning fans around the world with her bold and brilliant upcycled knitwear collections. This intrepid woman, who once counted knitting simply as a ‘hobby’, is the brains (and the beauty, we think!) behind our upcycled knitwear, The Pop Collection.
Emerging designers, Kévin Germanier and Victor Chu are the creative duo behind The R Collective’s inaugural Trailblazer collection. They’ve each won accolades as they stylishly upcycled their way into Lane Crawford and Barneys New York.
