LCF student line wins prize for addressing climate change
Nov '13
Hannah Gower, MA Fashion and the Environment (soon to be MA Fashion Futures), is Meet the Tide’s October winner.

Each month, the Meet the Tide project sets all UAL students a brief to challenge them to use their creative practice to raise awareness of environmental change. October’s brief was based around “social engagement and sustainability”.

Meet the Tide is a UAL initiative to challenge each of UAL’s colleges and the whole of its community to work to address climate change.

Hannah’s project, Wai(t) (Wei)ght, uses garment design to provoke people to reflect upon their role as consumers and the impact on the environment caused by their buying habits.

Hannah spoke about the aim of her collection, which is made out of waste fabric and donated tights, and weighted with stones, anchoring the wearer to the ground and asking them to ‘slow down’:

“The main idea was to capture and provoke consumer thinking in order to start to create solutions towards issues and problems within the fashion industry and consumption.”

Hannah presented her collection, which was developed as her undergraduate final project, in front of an industry panel. The young designer spoke about the experience:

“I feel very lucky to have found the opportunity to show my work to this industry panel and receive feedback from them. I think it’s a great project that Meet The Tide is running as new ways of understanding fashion and the arts in relation to issues of sustainability are extremely important in creating solutions.”
