Sustainability is at the heart of the UAL Extended Diploma in Fashion and Textiles curriculum, we produce two projects during Year two that are based around sustainable practice.

The work below is from a short project based on deconstructing and reconstructing existing garments:

“I took an old suit and transformed it. I started on the stand and manipulated it using different techniques to create both voluminous and constricted areas. I added thickly gathered pink tulle to contrast the masculine suit fabric, and styled with a red top to make it pop.”

Tia Chan

Start of deconstruct process the aim of this project was to create two new wearable outcomes.
