Liora Lasselle

Liora Lassalle has been announced as the winner of the Estethica/ Veolia Re-Source Competition Central Saint Martins (CSM). Her first collection will be launched at this London Fashion week as part of the Estethica exhibition, the British Fashion Council’s initiative for sustainable fashion.

We are super excited to learn that Liora Lassalle’s first collection will also feature on Style-is.co.uk (via Yooxygen) alongside the many other amazing recycled fashion collections that we already feature. It is a collection of jeans created from reclaimed denim donated by leading Italian manufacturer Pier, from the denim brand (+) People.

The aim of the collaboration between Estethica and Veolia Environmental Services, the UK’s leading recycling and waste management company is to identify and nurture a CSM student to develop creative and sustainable solutions in fashion. Liora Lassalle has received mentoring from Reclaim to Wear founder Orsola de Castro, Willie Walters (CSM) and Anna Orsini (BFC).

Estethica is now in its  fourteenth consecutive season and will be promoting sustainable fashion through its exhibition which will promote 14 designers’ AW13 collections West Wing of Somerset House at London Fashion Week. This time we will see the addition of new accessories brand Bottletop, ready-to-wear designers Katrien Van Hecke and Phannatiq in addition to returning brands  Beautiful Soul, Goodone, Lost Property of London, Veja, Ada Zanditon and Henrietta Ludgate amongst others (many of which also feature on style-is.co.uk)

Estethica designers have been chosen for their design excellence and commitment to working in a sustainable way. All designers adhere to at least one of the key Estethica principles of fair trade and ethical practice in the production process; the inclusion of organic fibres and the use of up-cycled and recycled fabrics and materials. Over the past seven years Estethica has supported over 100 designers.
