Zero waste fashion or zero waste pattern cutting is the idea of utilising 100% of the fabric, leaving no scraps to end up in landfills.

This idea has been explored for a while but the idea of 100% fabric utilisation can only be useful if applied on a big scale, for example in mass production.

Currently zero waste fashion can only be manufactured in one size, hence incompatible with mass production.

This project explores and solves the gap between ZWPC and commercial fashion production. Presenting a jacket that can be manufactured in different sizes and is completely marketable.
