The Ecochic Design Award is back!
The EcoChic Design Award organized by Redress is a sustainable fashion design competition. The purpose is to inspire emerging fashion designers and students from Europe and Asia to create mainstream clothing with minimal textile waste. The competition takes designers on an education and design journey lasting several theory and design-packed months.
The designers are first educated about the negative environmental impacts caused by the fashion industry, and are then taught sustainable fashion design techniques, such as, zero-waste, up-cycling and reconstruction that can combat this. After this is completed, they are provided with the tools, via lectures, videos, articles and recommended links, in order to develop their understanding of sustainable fashion design. Redress also challenges them to source textile waste, in its many forms, to enable them to transition towards sustainable design and sourcing.
The prize this year is to design an own-named capsule collection for Shanghai Tang
, China's leading luxury brand. During this process, the winner will be spending 3 month at the Shanghai Tang office getting inside knowledge and developing his collection.
The registration deadline is until the 15th of August, so apply now!
