Excerpts from fashioncrossover:
"Specialised in sustainability and circular design, French sustainable Haute Couture designer Aurelie Fontan established her label in London after graduating from the Edinburgh College of Art. With a Fine Art background, Aurelie pushes technological innovation and scientific discoveries to the forefront of her design process, combining avant-garde aesthetics and sustainable manufacturing methods.

With most of her fabrics made by hand and from scratch, she advocates for a technocraftivism that references her Parisian roots - couture craftsmanship - and a real focus on forward-thinking techniques - laser cutting, bio-mimicry, etc. Her collection TENSEGRITY tackles the issue of single-use plastic items, through upcycled cable ties that replace traditional seaming methods. This allows each piece to be easily recyclable. She also grew a dress from bacterias that are 100% biodegradable and compostable."

Frischer Wind in der Haute Couture

"Die Königsklasse der Mode, die diese Woche in Paris päsentiert wurde, scheint sich allmählich von ihrem verstaubten Image und von protzigen Roben zu verabschieden. Dank einer jungen, modernen Generation von Adeligen und Superreichen, die bereit ist, für gute Mode sehr viel Geld auszugeben, weht in der Haute Couture ein frischer Wind."

ma ke : wu yong chinese fashion
"the title 'wu yong' translates to 'useless'.
ma ke is known in china for her silent, organic and reflexive clothing that is more
creative and experimental in shape. confronted by the local clothing industry with
its cheap, homogenising mass-production and poorly paid workers whose skill is not valued,
and by a fashion scene lacking local aesthetic influence and dominated by foreign labels,
she dedicated herself to developing her ‘useless’ ideas."
