Designing for the Future
For his work creating and designing sustainable clothing
After winning the public vote for the Redress Design Award Hong Kong 2012 cycle People’s Award, Angus Tsui launched his namesake sustainable womenswear and menswear brand in 2014, which is created using the zero-waste, up-cycling and reconstruction design techniques. The brand uses excess fabric stock sourced from Hong Kong companies and social enterprises along with organic and recycled fabrics, and eco-friendly ink for digital printing. Angus Tsui believes that ”Sustainability must be incorporated into the whole supply chain, from design to sourcing, manufacturing, retailing, and even to promotion and after-sales services.” He also worked with the up-cycling vanguards like Orsola de Castro and Ada Zanditon in London to pursue advanced sustainable design techniques.His mission is to promote and advocate environmental sustainability in the fashion industry while providing edgy styles and unique aesthetics.
