DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Re-Lux

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Up-cycling Collection

INSPIRATION:
The inspiration was the human became furniture when getting old and discarded to the landfill. What do you think? Am I like garbage? Everything should be getting old in the world, whatever any object has life or not. Used the old/waste material for recycled the gorgeous thing was the aim of my idea. Inventive up-cycling of household textile waste is essential in order to create an eco-future without sacrificing style. By using the waste of the past to generate a chic look for today, bearing in mind both its lifetime and degradability, it may be possible to care for the environment tomorrow.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Collected raw materials: All of the textiles collected after the household renovation, there were spared textiles within curtain fabric, textile wallpaper and fake leather from the cabinet cover. Fortunately, the wastes were new and trendy for recycled. It was good experimental experiences to used nontraditional fabrics to make are new garments.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The collection includes 6 items: 1, Sweep train evening gown was made from cotton floral printed flat sheet with asymmetric smocking green cover was made from silk curtains decoration. 2, Ladies’ top with asymmetric draped was made from cotton floral printed fitted sheet. 3, Pants was made from black fake leather (PU) cabinet cover on the both side with minimal cut technique. It was quite thick for protection, so mixed the nylon with stretch knit fabric for more comfortable. After that, I decided to emphasize on the hip and side for highlighted the body shape. 4, Jacket was made from textile wallpaper to created unique silhouette. 5, Pleated maxi skirt was made form pink silk curtains decoration with zero-waste pattern. 6, Mermaid dress was made from navy curtain with zero-waste pattern and rolling technique on hem.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The concept started at early in 2013 and the production started in April 2013 and finished in June 2014, Hong Kong.

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Following the sustainable idea, zero waste pattern technique could be applied on pleated maxi skirt and mermaid dress. The pattern was transform form Japanese word “Kimono”, literally translated as “thing to wear”. As a fabric source for up-cycling to provide the pattern based on the straight edges and long, wide, rectangle for straightforward to dismantled. The square form of pattern with minimal cut was inspired by Kimono and applied on pants decoration.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Up-cycling has become the latest design trend. Therefore, the inventive up-cycling of discarded household textile materials were studied in this project in order to develop eco lux fashion. This resulted in the adding of new dimensions to the artistic up-cycling of creations. Reclamation was defined as the process of removing materials from the waste-stream and preparing them for recycling. Recycling was the reprocessing of that reclaimed material to achieve its conversion to a new material. It was concerned only with the post-consumer discarding of household waste and the process of recycling it as secondary materials.

CHALLENGE:
The aim of the design was to investigate the comprehension and acceptance of recycled fashion in order to find out the wearability and aesthetic value of recycled fashion. Moreover, used the different characteristic fabrications were this challenge. The construction of texture were bit thick and hard, in this experiment follow the texture characteristic to build up three-dimension and created the unique silhouette. On the other hand, when used the nontraditional fabrics were not easy to handle by sewing, but fitting were affirmatively satisfy, probably because of the well measurement.
