Tess also won the 2017 Melbourne Fashion Week Student Emerging Designer Award and the 2017 Box Hill Institute Degree Student of the Year Award. Tess is currently preparing to launch her first retail collection in collaboration with sustainable Hong Kong based brand The R Collective. The collection is created using textile waste and zero waste pattern cutting techniques and aims to disrupt and reimagine the way we design, make, and sell clothing.
