What happens when you win a contest? This is the question we should ask to Xiao Li, the winner of the Feel the Yarn contest. Student from the Royal College of Art, Xiao Li is a shy young lady who has been able to put all her creativity and professionalism within the clothes she created.
The company she was associated to, was Pinori Filati and here below you can watch Xiao Li with Raffaella Pinori few minutes after she knew about her winning.
The value of her creations is in the courage that she puts in her clothes, different from the others, innovative and made using recycled denim yarn from Pinori and polyurethane coating. The fluo colours of the outfits give them a touch of contemporary feeling.
Xiao Li explains her work telling: “In my work I am often influenced by ecological and sustainable issues, particularly recycling. When I saw the recycled denim yarn produced by Pinori, I was really pleased and so I have developed my design ideas around this concept“.
