Winner of sustainable designer prize says ‘we’re consuming and we’re discarding’ but fashion’s demands on resources far outweigh planet’s supply

Kit Willow of luxury brand Kit X cautioned against Australian fashion’s “crazy linear model of overconsumption” after receiving the sustainable designer award at the 2023 Australian Fashion Laureate.

“We’re consuming and we’re discarding, yet the price of raw materials are going up and the demand on virgin resources is far outweighing the supply, the Earth’s supply,” Willow said.
