Did you know that in the EcoFashion Lab contest we also have international contestants? Kittisak Mianthong, is a third year student majoring in Fashion and Textile Design at Bangkok University. Kittisak's interest in art began since he was very young and likes to recycle his old clothes by making a brand new outfit from it. Those are just some of many reasons why Kittisak enjoys studying fashion. For him, fashion is an art form of storytelling through clothes. Fashion can refect the situation that happens in each period. In a way, the art of design is like chapter that is written down to tell the story of the world. Kittisak's EcoFashion garment is inspired by the bleaching coral crisis, which is happening in the oceans around the world. It is caused by the effects of global warming. The main techniques Kittisak use to adapt the features of coral are the technique of draping and colour dying. The draping technique allows fabric to move elegantly with the dress. And the colour dying technique uses natural colouring which is environmentally friendly. The monochromatic colour shade of the garment mirrors the bleached feature of the coral reef. Furthermore, Kittisak also uses recycled plastic bottles to incorporate details for a more interesting and modern style. The style of Kittisak's design reflects a silhouette that is futuristic and minimalistic.
