Webinar on “Zero Waste and Upcycling” by Leather Goods and Accessories Department Noida
Speaker: Swati Soharia
She is a graduate of the National Institute of Fashion Technology (NIFT), New Delhi. Her staunch belief in frugal design and innovation led her to experiment early on with various materials and forms. After being exposed to the wasteful nature and exploitative practices of modern garment retail and visual merchandising industries, she worked towards raising awareness about the dangers of fast fashion and promote more responsible consumer behavior in fashion retail.
Launched in 2017, Swati Soharia Studio, the label is a natural outcome of her love for fashion and passion for sustainable living. She trains and employs women from marginalized communities to up-cycle waste fabric into handcrafted, one-of-a-kind accessories. They are an all-women team and they follow a strict zero-waste policy.
To promote responsible design practices, she continues to take guest lectures at top-tier fashion institutions. She collaborates with businesses and civil society to promote conscious consumerism.
