Bethany Williams partnered with British high street supermarket Tesco in an attempt to contribute to an alternative fashion system.

On our minds is Bethany Williams, one of the most exciting names to come out of London College of Fashion’s recent MA shows. For her ‘Breadline’ collection, Williams partnered with British high street supermarket Tesco to create pieces infused with waste materials such as old fruit and cardboard. With all garments made by local craftsmen from these – either recycled or organic – components, Williams plans to do some extra good by donating parts of the profit made from the collection to a South London-based food bank. With her mind set on social change, the young designer means that she’d like to contribute to an alternative system for fashion production in line with the idea of an exchange economy. Hear her explain further here.
