BA (Hons) Fashion

Hi! I'm Saveliin a fashion graduate specialising in embroidery.

I wanted to challenge the idea of disposable fashion with my final major project by focusing on longevity; exploring how storytelling and videography could help people develop long-lasting connections with their belongings. I follow sustainability principles in my practise by using low-impact materials and processes.

I believe we should treasure every piece of clothing and the unique stories behind them. What are they made of? Who made them? How are they made? Where are they made? Why are they made? Then we will think twice before bringing new clothes into our lives. We will start taking care of them, instead of discarding them after few uses. It will benefit us, the society and the planet. As designers, we also need to be mindful of our choices to make fashion more sustainable. Starting with little changes and strive for improvements can make a difference in the long run.
