Visit Raffles-KL Sustainability installation at The Intermark in conjunction with International Women’s Day and Earth Hour

This year, in conjunction with International Women’s Day & Earth Hour 2022, Raffles Kuala Lumpur presents an insightful campaign – Li’ME, with the slogan “Sustainable is Sexy!”

Li’ME is part of the Raffles Kuala Lumpur’s Sustainability Projects, to bring out the core message of women empowerment and sustainability, as well as aimed to build an understanding of circular fashion. These garments, sculptures, and accessories are aimed at creating awareness and adding value to sustainable fashion.

Since October 2018, the Fashion Design and Interior Design Department at Raffles Kuala Lumpur have been working on sustainable projects and we want our young students to learn how to overcome this crisis as well as the challenges it presents. Sustainable fashion has become a crucial matter not only for the fashion industry but also for our environment. Around 80% of a product’s environmental impact is locked in at the design stage. We believe, we can overcome these issues starting from the design stage.

For the Interior Design showcase, the focus is on conservation projects of heritage buildings. Our Interior Design Degree students continued their learning pursuit in search of creative solutions to address the ever-essential sustainable designs. They took a trip up to Penang to study a site, comprising double-story shophouses, 3 abandoned units, and another 2 warehouses and presented their proposed ideas for an adaptive reuse project along Lorong Ikan.

The exhibition is from 7 March till 3 April, located at Ground Atrium, Intermark Mall, nearby to the main entrance. Drop by and visit our showcase to understand more about Sustainability in Fashion.
Li’ME is all about
Humanity. Femininity. Purity.
