This week for #TagYourTalent, guest judge and Industry Trustee, chose creative work by Amelia Fordyce, a Fashion Communication student at Northumbria University.

“How is fashion contributing to plastic pollution’. There is a terrible sense of desolation and destruction in this collage: the lone surfer silhouetted against the misty light of dawn on a dirty beach, littered with the detritus of modern life.”

Hilary Alexander OBE, Industry Trustee, #TagYourTalent Judge

“Living and growing up by the seaside I have seen a significant increase in plastic pollution washed up on our beaches. During this project I am researching how Fashion is a huge contributor to the environmental problem, and how looking at what is used in your clothes will help a lot more than cutting down on single use plastic”
