Join our Plastic Fashion Workshops to turn waste into fashion

Plastic Fashion Workshops

Italian designer and artist Manuela Catania will conduct a Plastic Fashion Workshop for HKUST students. She has been exploring ways to use old textile and plastic to hand-make wearable fashion pieces.

To prepare for the workshop, we’re already working with the HKUST Sustainability Unit to collect used, clean plastic on campus. Help us turn waste into useful materials and join us to learn fashion design and making skills!
