Redress launches EcoChic sustainable fashion competition

The EcoChic Design Award is a sustainable fashion design competition organised by Redress, inspiring emerging fashion designers and students to create mainstream clothing with minimal textile waste. Each competition cycle takes designers on an education and design journey lasting several theory and design-packed months. Besides educating designers about the fashion industry’s negative environmental impacts and the sustainable fashion design techniques, zero-waste, up-cycling and reconstruction that can combat this, designers will get the tools to develop their understanding of sustainable fashion design.

Redress challenges fashion designers to source textile waste, in its many forms, to enable them to transition towards sustainable design and sourcing and to cut waste out of fashion. The EcoChic Design Award puts sustainable design talent in the spotlight and rewards the best with career-changing prizes to change the pattern of fashion.

Submit your entry to the EcoChic Design Award 2017 before 11:59pm in your local time on 3 April 2017

Good luck!
