My name is Maya Hill, I am 17 years old and am an aspiring fashion designer with a passion for sewing and sustainability. My project has been inspired by my qualities as a designer and my aspirations of making the world a better place through the influence of sustainable fashion. I have designed a series of 7 pieces that represent me as a fashion designer that also incorporate an ethical resource selection of fabrics that promote eco-friendly practices within the textiles community. Through my project I worked with repurposed fabrics from clothing items I have previously loved that inspired my work and name for my collection; “Repurposed Purchase’ which relates to the upcycling of pre-owned clothing and purchases that may no longer be suited to the needs of the consumer. Repurposed Purchase explores several designs for women and girls that showcase my love for fashion, which reflects my personal style and signature design techniques that are a significant feature of my collection.
