sustainability starts with the designer
Educate. Inspire. Disrupt. Change.
Sustainability is an essential quality that nowadays must be present in every fashion designer’s strategy.
Upcycle Project creates strategic partnerships with design schools to mentor students on fashion sustainability and encourage them to create upcycled designs with materials that would have otherwise been discarded.
Each workshop is customized and designed to challenge the creativity of students, who must only use the donated material or source from other forms of textile waste.
Upcycle Project's workshops help participants identify the current impact of the fashion industry, and shift their textile sourcing mindset into finding creative circular solutions to build a sustainable fashion brand strategy.
As their final project, students participate in a presentation to showcase pieces made from donated materials.
