The Waves of the Future

by Rawan Maki

The “Waves of the Future” AW17 Collection is a women’s wear sustainable collection inspired by the interaction of humans with the environment. In my collection, I combine my environmental engineering background with fashion design and create each piece as a “system”, both aesthetically and in terms of design principles.

Each of the 12 looks in the collection has an aesthetic story – a past. For example, Look 02 has a pleated and projected collar with a staggered neckline – this neckline is inspired by the obsession to reclaim land.

I use fabrics that are produced sustainably, from organic and certified farming practices, to environmentally-friendly dyes, and recycled fabrics. The buttons used are 100% coconut.
