With mills innovating and implementing the 3 key practices of “Reuse, Redesign and Reduce”. Taiwan's unique sustainable development has enabled local designers to challenge the concept of mass-produced fashion with their own creations.

Timo Helgert @vacades created the key Taipei Fashion Week visual depicting an alternative reality where a Utopian nature scene stems from within a Taipei metro cart. Focusing on the simple connection between humanity and nature, by envisioning our busy everyday life in blooming nature. Taiwan is leading the way and commitment for a better and solid foundation for our future generation.

“We are planting the seed of sustainability through nurturing the next generation of creatives. By showing young designers that Taipei Fashion Week is a platform that is committed to advocating sustainability and innovation.” Li Lianquan, Executive Deputy Minister of the Ministry of Culture.
