DkdesignFashion (https://www.instagram.com/derrickgrant2). We have a new fashion line that was presented at HighTechModa’s fashion show at the National Geographic Odyssey exhibition as part of the Spring NYFW. Dkdesignfashion takes inspiration from Dkdesign fine artwork to design unique garments from fabrics that are dye sublimated with the art (https://dkdesignfineart.weebly.com/). Most of these fabrics are made of polyester that was resourced from recycled plastic bottles (Repreve) since they bind to the inks really well. This theme presented at NYFW creates a message of awareness of the damage we are doing to our planet by allowing plastic waste to accumulate in the oceans. This was done through art and fashion (in a show entitled Designs from the Sea); this year’s artistic theme will recognize the current state of our ocean and other aquatic environment and suggest ways of reducing the desecration of our blue planet’s waters by removing plastic waste and re-purposing the bottles into fabrics. Fabrics in the entire show are different shades of blue which takes its design from the blue sea and the show contains nearly 50% recycled plastic bottles. As designers we have to set an example for the fashion industry and follow a more sustainable path that helps to protect our home.
