Project 2015-12-08 00:10:28 +1300

16 Unique Fellows. 6 Inspirational Mentors. 7-Day Intensive Program. By Application Only. MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA. January 2016.

Extensive & Immersive Experiences In Disruptive Design and Social Innovation. Amazing Activities. Curated Experiences. Strong Networks. Creative Leadership. Mind-changing Activations. Real World Projects & Challenges. Change. Sustainability. Design. Social Innovation.

 

I have been offered a fellowship and am super excited to be going, but I need a little help to get there. With a 25% off scholorship I still need to cover fees and get a new passport. Fees cover things like food and transport whilst on the course, I have accomodation and flights sussed thanks to my beautiful family, now I need more people to help me achieve this amazing opportunity.

I will bring back more tools to help my community of Dunedin and New Zealand to grow a more sustainable fashion industry.

I'm excited about the future, will you help me make it amazing?

 

My background is in Zerowaste Textiles, I run my own zerowaste lifestyle label called Senorita AweSUMO and a non profit Just Atelier for community outreach and education around conscious consumption, textile waste, reuse and traditions of craft like Make, Mend and DO!

I graduated from Otago Polytechnic School of Design in 2011 with a Bachelor of Design in Fashion. I am currently studying a Grad. Dip in Sustainable Practice at Otago Polytech.

The People Behind Senorita AweSUMO Attends Unschool of Disruptive Design | Melbourne Jan 23 - 29

Picture?type=square&width=50&height=50 Senorita AweSUMO Project admin

My name is Fiona Clements and I believe that what you have and are as a being should always be honest to self and earth alike. I graduated from Otago Polytechnic School of Design in 2011, since then I have been runnning my zerowaste fashion business Senorita AweSUMO. Last year I setup Just Atelier Trust to accomodate the non profit arm of sustianable fashion and education in my community. I am also on the Otago Polytechnic External Advisory Committee for the Design School and have been helping them establish a new suite of programmes with a focus on sustinability. I am currently studying a Grad. Dip in Sustainable Practice at Otago Polytechnic.

It's about being more aware of our surroundings and taking responsibility for our actions in the long term. Closing the loop in an over abundant system. Filling in the gaps and helping the environment around us to regenerate.

I pledge to practice conscious consumption by:
- learning more about where my clothing comes from.
- making desicions based on quality rather than quantity.
- supporting handmade, local, sustainable, ethical or second hand fashion.
- caring for my clothes to make them last.
and to live life better by living slower.
