The collection marks the first dress on the Paris Fashion Week runway to incorporate circular polyester. The collaboration demonstrates the potential of innovative circular materials to meet the artistic and technical needs of high-fashion creations, AmberCycle and Tombogo said in a joint press release.
Ambercycle debuted the Tombogo x cycora collection at Paris Fashion Week. This three-piece modular range, part of designer Tommy Bogo’s S/S 2024 ‘The Future is Bright’ collection, uses Sycora regenerated canvas. The collaboration not only reduces environmental impact but also illustrates how circular materials can meet high-fashion needs.
By reducing the extraction of raw materials from the earth, reducing greenhouse gas emissions and diverting materials from landfills, Sycora Materials provides designers worldwide with environmentally responsible material options.
Research shows that about 80 percent of a product’s environmental impact is determined during the design phase. The Tombogo x Psychora collaboration demonstrates a new standard in how designers can seamlessly integrate circularity into their creative process, the release added.
“Partnering with Tommy is a truly exciting opportunity for us to bring his vision to life. Forward-thinking designers are essential to our circular ecosystem, enabling us to lead into a future where style and circularity coexist seamlessly,” said Shaw Shetty, co-founder and CEO of AmberCycle.
“Using the Sycora fabric was a wonderfully seamless experience—lacking the complexity and limitations you sometimes associate with sustainable fabrics. As a designer who cares about the impact of fashion on the world, I find it refreshing to work with a fabric that allows us to design and Fits effortlessly into the manufacturing process, while also being good for the environment,” said Designer Tommy Bogo.
