SINGAPORE – Students of Raffles-Coventry’s Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Fashion and in International Fashion Business have put their design thinking and creative problem-solving skills in action for a good cause!
Held at City Square Mall, Raffles Fashion and Jewellery Designers reused some of the 17.5 tons of clothes and accessories collected, and up-cycled them into new designer outfits to raise funds for charity organisations supported by City Development Limited (CDL).
To promote sustainability and 3Rs in the fashion industry, Raffles Fashion Marketers created a series of promotional campaigns to educate consumers and the public to reduce, reuse, and recycle.
The 3-day event from 2 to 4 March was officially opened by Guest-of-Honour Dr Amy KHOR, Senior Minister of State, Ministry of Environment and Water Resources. In appreciation of Dr Khor’s support of the event and purchase of the up-cycled outfit by Raffles Fashion Designers, CHEN Yaying, Ayin, Mr. ONG Kai How, Vice President of Singapore Operations, presented Dr Khor with an up-cycled necklace made from pre-loved items donated.
Through Raffles Design, our students added value to these pre-loved items by using their creativity to up-cycle them into valuable apparels and accessories.
Raffles Singapore is proud of our students’ efforts to raise awareness about the need for socially responsible fashion.
