DESIGNER OF THE DAY UTA SIENKIWICZ

Fashion Designer and Eco Warior Uta Sienkiewicz MA CSM Collection AW20 presented during London Fashion Week

Originally from Poland, Uta Sienkiewicz is a truly future-minded designer committed to developing sustainability in fashion.

“Wastefulness is a big problem concerning the fashion industry, and more and more designers are starting to realise it,” she says for the Calvert Journal “My main focus is resourcefulness and upcycling. I made my whole MA collection out of unwanted fabrics, bits and off-cuts from clothing manufacturers and waste. To make an entire collection with that restriction was like solving a puzzle, but I think the solution is always there, it just takes more sampling to get to it!”

“I take a lot of inspiration from folk garments from around the world. I love their complexity and decorativeness but also their construction is often very interesting,” Sienkiewicz says. Studying craft technologies and materials from the past and using them to come up with solutions for the future is one of the key elements of her work. Her interest in upcycling is also connected with her memories of Poland.

“My collection was influenced by my family house that I grew up in, which was always full of different kinds of objects that other people wanted to throw away. Being surrounded by second-hand and unwanted possessions for the majority of my life, I developed a certain respect for materials that later influenced my values as a designer,” she explains. “However, I am also a maximalist at heart, so I want my garments to scream ‘EXCESS’ without actually abusing any excessive resources or eco-enemy fabrics along the way. I think that’s what I’m aiming for — making sustainable fashion more fun.”
