Prize(s)Silver in Other Fashion Designs / Recycle / Sustainable fashion, Bronze in Accessory / Footwear
Entry Description

My first range to the contribution of sustainable designs for my brand ‘CORAL by Seema’ using ‘peace silk’. The silk is locally hand dyed with natural dye materials from the environment such as flowers, seeds, roots and leaves. Silk is manipulated to create a volume using grid shirring method and stuffed bobbles, giving it a soft feminine feel and is teamed with Toray Ultrasuede made from 100% recycled polyester and hemp.


‘CoralbySeema’ is a way to channelise my love for nature combined with free flowing creativity. I want people to feel loved and move one step closer to nature when they wear my creations; made from lengths of cloth hand-dyed and printed using ingredients from nature. I am committed to being an ecologically sustainable brand that will leave unforgettable impressions in the world.
I have the gratification of creating a design and bring it to life. Art has my heart & soul and I’m forever grateful to have found my calling to create beautiful tomorrows for our planet earth.
