Z is for Zero waste
Artwork by Joana Vasconcelos
About Look Z
We aspire to eliminate the concept of waste, circularly revisiting old favourites to make something new and unexpected. Each Gabriela one-off dress is the most rare and beautiful, with the least waste – created from strips of patterned fabrics from 9 Stella ready-to-wear collections spanning Spring 2015, Summer 2015, Autumn 2015, Spring 2016, Spring 2018, Winter 2018, Winter 2019, Spring 2020 and Summer 2020. Even the dress pattern is cut with a zero-waste fabric.
