A Fashion and Textiles Educator currently working at BPS Secondary College in Mauritius. As a fashion and textiles teacher she has always promoted the Green concept in students project work.
With a Bachelor degree in textile and fashion, she is always interested into studying the properties of fabric, basics of colour and texture.
This project began as an exploration of fabric construction methods.
It involves engaging stakeholders and collaborators in the processes of designing, making and testing of textiles. The strategy used is upcycling of fabric remnants sourced from the local textile mill in Elgin. The approach to upcycling, with which this practice is aligned, treats the textile source as laden with information that guides the form of new fabrics out the textile waste. Subsequently, the fabrics were sent for testing in Portugal for the creation of Almalaguês- Spanish sneakers.
Awarded as a Highly Commendable project in September 2020 for the SIE Fresh Idea Competition.
