Graduate 2019⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Designer’s name: Shivangi Suvarna⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Country: India⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Brand Name: ANGIKOONTU⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Collection Name: Shiva⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Sector: Creator⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ @angikoontu⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I am the universe. Empty and full, unknown to known, enchanting and exhausting.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I am the motherland. Elevated and rooted, destructive and creative, pure and impure.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I am the universe, the land, and the spirit. I am everything and nothing at times or every time.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I am. Limitless. Inspired from the mythological existence named 'Shiva', this collection is an amalgamation of the characteristics of Shiva and bringing solutions to the wastage crisis of the fashion industry by using sustainable techniques like repurposing, upcycling and reconstructing dead stock from mass market retailers and producing new gender-fluid silhouettes.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #esmoddubai⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #esmod⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #esmoddubaigraduation2019⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #upcycling⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #sustainablefashion⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #sustainable⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #avantgarde⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #imakemyownclothes⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #fashionschool⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #designstudents⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #madeindubai⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #dubai⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #fashionstudent⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #limitless⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #garmentconstruction⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #fashionresearch⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #graduatecollection⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #wearegraduatefashion⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #finalcollection⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #studyfashion⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #designertowatch⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #fashiongraduate⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #youngdesigners⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #fashionblog

What inspired this decision? Well, the students had watched a film, which exposed the pollution and harm the fashion industry can cause. The students were so moved, they decided to make a change. One student made their clothing out of recycled material, while another made it out of eco-friendly material.

Graduate 2019⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Designer’s name: Ramona Mardini ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Country: Lebanon⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Brand Name: Ramona Mardini ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Collection Name: Modern Athena⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Sector: Creator⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ @ramona.mardini⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Why did we end up in an era where we have to define and certify things that should be normal? My muse is Athena, Greek goddess of wisdom, inspiration, strength, strategy, arts, crafts and skill. Imagined if she existed today, she would be a fashion designer fighting against the pollution caused by fast fashion. My customer is a part of the growing design philosophy and movement towards environmental and social sustainability. I have in heart the making of an ethical and sustainable business. Cruelty free-no fur or leather, re-engineered cashmere, ethically-sourced wool, GOTS certified organic cotton, non-toxic dyes,recycled textiles, sustainable packaging & branding.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #esmoddubai⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #esmod⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #esmoddubaigraduation2019⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #madeofwood⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #creator⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #avantgarde⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #fashionschool⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #designstudents⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #madeindubai⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #dubai⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #fashionstudent⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #garmentconstruction⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #fashionresearch⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #graduatecollection⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #wearegraduatefashion⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #finalcollection⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #studyfashion⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #designertowatch⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #fashiongraduate⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #youngdesigners⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #fashionblog

The eco-friendly material followed the guidelines from Global Organic Textile Standards. While the recycled material is from old scraps of past clothing or lentil bags from India.

We love how these students just graduated but are already making a change to our planet. Well done, guys, seriously.
