CHILING LIN WEARS DRESS MADE OF ORANGES
The celebrated Taiwanese model and actor made a conscious style statement at this year's Global Change Award.
Taiwanese stunner Chiling Lin took the red carpet at the annual Global Change Award in Stockholm wearing a classic gala dress – in a not so classic fabric. Orange Fiber, one of the award's winners from 2016, is a silk-like fabric crafted from by-products from citrus juice production that has a heavy satin-quality. With a fluid floral print and sheer recycled tulle skirt, Chiling Lin's dress combines timeless designs and the future of fashion.
“I love this gown as it’s very glamorous with beautiful details, but what’s even better is that this silk-like fabric is made of citrus peel, the result from one of last year’s Global Change Award winners. It really shows that by starting thinking in new ways, circularity can take the fashion industry to the next level, without compromising on style,“ says Chiling Lin.
