“Hold Me Close is from the We are the Environment print series.
The series explores my passions of fashion, sustainability and environment. We are the Environment unravels the process of seven sustainable fashion designers to tell the story of climate change and man’s relationship to the environment. Innovative, thought-provoking, community focused and future thinking, these designers show us that clothes – their source, manufacture and design – are inseparable from the way we see and exist within the environment. Fashion is inseparable from our impact on the planet. We are the environment.
Inspired by the work of Elliss, the image plays with the idea of the landscape as our second skin. Inherently terrain, the artwork encapsulates our interconnectedness with nature’s resources and our responsibility to hold the planet close.
This piece means a lot to me. It speaks to me as a young woman who loves fashion whilst yearning for a greater awareness of how our choices affect the planet.”
