Fighting fast fashion and creating a sustainable collection

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. Priyal Turakhia and Rushva Parihar set out on a mission to re-using ‘single use plastic’ items, such as water and shampoo bottles to create sequins, can drastically reduce the waste created and save the environment.
