Designer Daniel Hallam and his brand, HALLAM studios aims to challenge preconceived ideas about sustainability in fashion through longevity, wearability, innovation and sustainability. He pushes to innovate through original knit techniques, experimenting with finishings and seams, creating exciting textures and perfecting the fit of garments. The brand is always, unconsciously sustainable, whether this is through utilising recycled yarns and fabrics or through upcycling vintage pieces that have history and narrative. These ethics carry through all the collections and resonate with consumers in how they live their lives and value the past that's dear to them.
