Kilomet 109 slow fashion and sustainable clothes
VU THAO – HANOI VIETNAM
Kilomet 109 was born from the vision of Vu Thao, designer, artist and eco-entrepreneur in Vietnam. Thao is a leader among the pioneering group of young designers who have made Hanoi an emerging creative hub of the fashion world. Thao’s vision encompasses every detail of the production process: using organic fibers and traditional techniques of vegetable dying, Thao works with her team of local artisans to grow, spin, weave, color and print Kilomet 109 fabrics. This defines a new type of ready-to-wear couture: hand-made, hand-stitched garments from a designer who works directly with local artisans on every element that goes into them.
Vu Thao enhances the philosophy of slow fashion, as opposed to mass fast fashion. She produces ecological clothes, for a new sustainable living.
