A BA (Hons) Graphic Design student has spoken about her work at the Design Museum in London
Alice Lynn was invited to be a student speaker at the ‘Design Change Makers’ event after creating a project during her second year at AUB titled ‘Swap Shop’.
Talking about her project, Alice said: “Swap Shop is a clothes swapping app, designed as a sustainable fast fashion solution.
“I created it because I love buying second-hand clothes and was shocked to discover other people on my course didn’t seem to buy second-hand.
“The concept builds on other clothes-buying platforms, but the swapping aspect makes it unique and more affordable for young people.”
A collaboration between Creative Conscience and the Design Museum, the event aimed to “inform, engage and inspire creative thinkers to explore positive design solutions”.
A statement on the event’s website said: “We’ll be showcasing some amazing projects from industry professionals, brands, graduates and students, who have already used their talents and created change in behaviours, thinking and even products.
“This is an amazing opportunity to be inspired, interact and network with other creative thinkers – help to create the change you want to see in the world.”
Alice, now in her third year, had the opportunity to meet fellow speakers including RubyMoons founder, the Fashion and Textile Designer, Jo Godden, and CupClub Founder and CEO, Safia Qureshi, the Product Designer and Architect.
We caught up with Alice after the event and she said: “It was inspiring to be a part of an event where people were using their creativity for social and sustainable good.
“I really enjoyed the experience at the Design Museum and was glad I pushed myself to do it, even though public speaking isn’t my favourite thing.”
