Rebranding Green Issues by Agy
Agy Textile Artist

When my friend, S, first approached me in 2008 to join her green lifestyle blog, little did I know that it would take me on a journey in the sustainable fashion world. To be honest, I did not think of myself as fashionable or even trendy. But a maker I was, and when S decided to step away from the project, I plunged into a world of upcycling and repair. It was initially just about sharing my weekend sewing escapades (from work!) but the more I read and researched about how important making is, the more I realised that I needed a platform for me to voice my concerns and ideas about sustainability and the fashion industry. It has created enormous opportunities for me - cofounding Connected Threads Asia and bringing Fashion Revolution to Singapore with my friends.  I am very grateful for the people who I have met along the way and the immense support given to me.

Now I am at the stage where I want to go to the next level. I prefer a gentler protest and have found that art is a very suitable avenue to bring the message of garment upcycling and repair techniques across to the public. I hope to do more interactive art installations where people can slow down and not just appreciate the story of the clothes, but also the environment as well.  So, I will be slowly changing this platform and eventually rebranding as Agy Textile Artist.

  1. I'm so excited for your transformation! I've been working on my graduate studies to become an arts administrator and textiles is one area that continually fascinates me. Can't wait to see how your blog evolves and develops.

  2. Agy, I LOVE this transformation! You really are a textile artist, and I think that this rebranding truly reflects what you excel at the most. It's been so interesting to see how your focus has changed over these years that I've been following you, and your work never ceases to amaze me! :) Lisa
