About Me

In March this year, aspiring fashion designer Priyal Turakhia was named winner of the Fashion Forward Fellowship — one of India’s first fellowships that focuses on bringing climate action to fashion. This talented creator gave new life to single use plastic in her collection titled Could Be by Nirantar (निरंतर). Her line consisted of garments made from hand-woven organic cotton, adorned with sequins made from water bottles and cosmetic product bottles. The traditional method of creating sequins from Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) is chemical intensive and leads to non-biodegradable outcomes. Therefore, using ‘single use plastic’ items, such as water and shampoo bottles to create sequins, can drastically reduce the waste created and save the environment.
