TENCEL™ Luxe partnered with Quoï Alexander, Peet Dullaert and Fiona Fondadouze, three up-and-coming designers, to reinforce Lenzing’s passionate efforts towards the sustainable fashion revolution.
An interdisciplinary fashion designer originally from California, Quoï’s esthetic embraces innovation and modernity through bold silhouettes, cuts and colors. Quoï has used TENCEL™ Luxe to create silhouettes with intrinsic ruching details that are both functional and elaborate, one of his signature takes that has already been recognized by influential fashion titles such as Vogue UK, i-D and Dazed and Confused. His silhouettes were showcased during the TENCEL™ Luxe launch event in Paris where his eye for detail was embodied in his creations.
"My esthetic and brand vision means that I need fabrics and filaments that are able to form bold silhouettes, that drape beautifully and hold color. TENCEL™ Luxe by Lenzing matches all of these needs as demonstrated through the silhouettes that have strong form with intricate details and I’m delighted to have partnered with Lenzing for this special project.”
Fiona Fondadouze is one of the fashion industry’s rising stars recognized for her attention to detail and experimental approach. Bringing together the parallel universes of high-fashion and sportswear, Fiona has used TENCEL™ Luxe branded lyocell filament to develop silhouettes that complement the modern woman who is looking for styles that allow for gracious draping and movement. Using a beautiful combination of patterns and colors, Fiona has brought TENCEL™ Luxe to life through her very own interpretation – from day to night.
“My esthetic means that I need fabrics that can relate to a modern woman and her elaborate needs to be comfortable yet assertively stylish and present. Partnering with Lenzing has been an important part of this journey, as I recognize the growing need from my clientele to use fabrics that have a greater environmental impact, made possible by this sustainable filament.”
As creative director of his eponymous label, Peet is intrinsically linked to all aspects of the design process. Recognized for his silhouettes that complement and liberate the body, Peet has embraced the trend of metamorphosis to bring to life a silhouette using TENCEL™ Luxe that drapes in a contemporary and empowered shape.
"Sustainability is key for me as a brand as we are constantly looking for ways to further our responsible production cycle which is why I was thrilled to hear about TENCEL™ Luxe. It is important for me to ensure that we don’t compromise on material style or quality and TENCEL™ Luxe really helps meet this need.”
