Sophie Reeve designed her dress
made from re-used ties.
Sophie, an A2 student from Redland High School, experimented with several
different ways of using sustainable materials and methods in her project.
Ties were not in her original list but turned out to be a very innovative
and effective way of creating something completely different.
Her research into eco-friendly fibres and materials is very thorough as is
her consideration of sustainability issues throughout the life-cycle of a
product. We loved the idea of Gwyneth Paltrow being her client, but were
disappointed to find that Gwyneth had not actually modelled the dress!
Sophie is very honest in her assessment of her work and we honestly think
she’s made a really good effort at maintaining sustainable principles
throughout her work.
