Nowadays, fashion production can create a significant amount of carbon emissions. Moreover, if it continues to harm the environment, the carbon emission could increase more and more. Therefore, as a fashion designer, I want to create a sustainable fashion design based on the concept of zero-waste fashion. To create a sustainable fashion design, I selected some hand-woven hemp fabric from the northern part of Thailand as the primary material. This hemp fabric is a 100% organic product, which is friendly for the environment and wearers. Moreover, hemp consumes approximately 20% less water than cotton. Furthermore, I chose a natural bundle dye technique to create detail. On top of that, using a zero-waste pattern can eliminate or reduce textile waste. I experimented with draping and bundled dying. The silhouette design was inspired by draping a piece of fabric on the figure to create a zero-waste design. In addition, textile printing was inspired by Claude Monet's 'Water Lilies.'. Then, I did a bundle dye using butterfly pea flowers to create blue and green colours and impressionism art elements. Afterwards, I sketched a fashion design and tried to make a zero-waste pattern. After that, I sewed my pattern together to finish my process. As a result of this project, I feel that using natural materials and eco-friendly techniques can give beautiful detail and creative elements to my design. Besides, I realized that if the fashion industry could change the method of production, our world would be better.
