“For me, a sustainable designer is someone who is thinking of the future by innovating through their work to combat the environmental issues we face on a day to day basis. The more sustainability is communicated within the fashion world, the more designers and other professionals will be aware of their waste and the impact it has on the environment, and will be empowered to act.” - Gemma Hill
