Tony Wards 2023 collection of seemingly fire and molten lather, cascading around the delicate frame of the woman, proved a revelation for sustainability and up cycling, displaying there is much to be gained when working to the higher level of fashion and environment consciousness.
The House is always keen on moving towards a more sustainable and environmentally friendly fashion future. It has been actively engaged in upcycling dresses from previous collections, recreating them and transforming them under the new season artistic vision. Adding splashes of colors to a sequined sheath dress, infusing fresh organza into vintage silk thread material works, were some of the ideas developed by the studio to give a new life to the Tony Ward archives.
Ward collaborated with high-tech architect & digital fabricator Batoul Al-Rashdan to make a statement piece. By combining Studio B.O.R.'s expertise in 3D modeling & printing and Tony Ward's visionary design concepts, a sustainable piece came to life. This “not-so-little” black dress is created using a layer-by-layer printing of biodegradable plant-based material, carefully stitched together on a tulle base to embody the woman’s shape. What lies beneath, Under my skin.
