Redress Fashion won the 2020 Moving Pictures Staff Choice Award with the RSA, London (The Royal Society of Arts) Student Design Awards. The project was created alongside my peer and friend, Emerald Gibson. It aims to tackle fast fashion and its impact on the planet in a light–hearted, engaging way. The video speaks directly to fashion designers, asking them to come up with more sustainable, ethical approaches to their designs. However, its message is also relatable and applicable to all fashion consumers—by raising awareness to the damage fast fashion causes our planet and its people.
We decided to create a stop motion animation using recycled fabric—which we happened to have a collection of from hoarding over the years. We felt that using the material that's causing the issue would be an engaging way to tell the story.
