Design to Sustain
Design to Sustain, an initiative to express its support towards sustainable and ethical fashion, aligning themselves with the Commonwealth Fashion Council and United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals.
With the ascending lifestyle of zero-waste living, KLFW speaks up for sustainability by forming Design to Sustain. An initiative to express its support towards sustainable and ethical fashion while aligning with AirAsia, Commonwealth Fashion Council of UK, and United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.
Bringing 13 young designers from the past winners and finalists of AirAsia Runway Ready Designer Search (AARRDS) to be a part of Rethink & Reconstruct.
In early June, KLFW managed to gather the 13 eco-warriors at one of the biggest pre-loved shops in KL, Jalan Jalan Japan and each of them have been given an allowance for their purchase. With that, they are producing a look each by revamping and reconstructing those pieces into a brand-new design to be showcased during KLFW 2019.
In order to uplift the initiative even greater, KLFW is payed homage to two conscious organisations through recognizing SURI, a Malaysian social enterprise that empowers single and underprivileged mother by handcrafting products using up-cycled denim; Kloth Cares, a movement to keep fabrics out of landfills.
