Although we specialise in architecture and interiors, we appreciate design in all its forms. Therefore, we had to feature the local talent which was recently showcased in SA Fashion Week.
Sustainable Fashion: Launched by Woolworths
Fashion week has come on and gone, however we are still talking about the fashionable breakthroughs in design that were recently brought to our attention through the event. Woolworths has just launched South Africa’s first sustainable fashion capsule. The pieces were commissioned by Woolworths to be made by South African designers, using sustainable fibres.
The Better Cotton Collection has been sourced from the SADC region, and has undergone a dyeing process that uses only eco-friendly chemicals. The purpose of the collection works to transform cotton production worldwide by advocating for the well-being of the people who produce it, and the environment in which it grows.
Woolworths has created an immersive installation to be showcased at SAFW, designed and produced with people and the planet in mind. The installation features BCI cotton sheeting accented with raw BCI cotton slivers, which will be donated to The Clothing Bank to help empower unemployed South African women. From the indigenous water-wise plants to the scaffolding, each element of the activation space has been carefully considered in terms of minimising waste, and ensuring the option of recycling or re-use in the supply chain.
