Paul CastroEducator, Diploma of Fashion Styling at RMIT University

After 20 years in the fashion industry, designer Paul Castro was confronted with the problem of fashion waste when visiting a Melbourne warehouse to buy fabric.

Paul's response to the problem of waste was to create AMASSMENT, a bespoke conceptual label that specialises in taking unwanted, unused clothing and transforming it into high-end women's fashion.

By applying superior level design skills, AMASSMENT specifically aims to create shapes and forms not previously seen.

Wearing an AMASSMENT creation allows the wearer to show their support for a stylish yet sustainable fashion industry.

Industry recognition came in the form of a major international prize at the iD Dunedin International Emerging Designer Award.

Paul is an educator and currently works at RMIT.
