BY SXD. FROM FABRIC TO ZERO WASTE DESIGN.

The kimono is the OG zero waste garment. One bolt of fabric. Minimum cuts. No waste.

Drawing from the original kimono concept, SXD’s first prototypes were built to unleash the power of this beautifully pure idea.

Brilliant minds and technology combined to propel the time-tested philosophy into the now and the future…

An outburst of audacious ideas ensued, giving life to inspired ingredients that have coalesced to form new shapes, new visual languages, and new possibilities.

What remains is an unwavering commitment to generate zero waste and to do right by our planet’s resources.

Our work is the product of looking behind us, inside of us, and ultimately beyond us, to create something that feels familiar yet avant-garde, comforting yet daring, and uncompromisingly sustainable.

My team and I are applying ecorepel to our fabrics for our next project. Basically a environmentally friendly way to repel water through biomimicry of duck’s feathers. 🤓🤓💚 #sustainability #ecorepel #fashiondesign #fabric #designer #technology #designtech #ecofashionblogger ...

This was the very first design I made using fabric. The fabric actually came from my bed sheet. I knew nothing about sewing then, but there was a lot that I wanted to say at 3AM. I named this piece “reverse explosion” because as someone who went through twelve different schools across three different countries before high school, I often felt like I had to contain myself from “exploding.” I’m a bit more zen now, but I really don’t want to lose those raw feelings. In fact, I want to amplify them through my work, so more people can feel 💥 (fireworks? Forever bad with analogies tho lol) 📸 by @rewildingsara and styles by @norastallworth1
