” I’M ONLY
HAPPY with a DESIGN
if I KNOW I’ve done EVERYTHING
to ensure it has
MINIMAL IMPACT on the WORLD”
Winner of Ecochic Design Awards 2017
Kate Morris’s winning collection was colourful, whimsical and playful. Her design technique consists of zero-waste, up-cycling and reconstruction made with second-hand T-shirts, and end-of-line yarns to create the diverse knitwear. Her approach blends technology with handcrafting skills for efficiency and to create a tactile connection with the wearer.
As the winner of this year’s award, Kate will be working closely with BYT; Redress’s new up-cycled social impact fashion brand.
