Project Report | Jan 30, 2024
A new cycle of the competition kicks off with deep education focus to to drive circular fashion

By Hannah Lane | Partnerships Director at Redress

Dear valued donor,

The Redress Design Award 2024, the 14th cycle of the world's leading sustainable fashion design competition, is now open for applications! This year, iconic fashion brand Tommy Hilfiger is joining forces for the program and calls on emerging designers globally to apply with their circular and sustainable fashion collections before the closing date of 15 March 2024.

"Fashion is one of the world's most polluting industries. Left unabated, pollution and waste are set to worsen. We urgently need to accelerate circular fashion, which is the best way to let fashion thrive without costing the earth," said Dr. Christina Dean, Founder of Redress. "We want to redress — to remedy and set right — fashion, by collaborating with bold fashion brand businesses and brilliant designer talent to create the fashion industry of the future, right now."

Fashion's current unsustainable linear system of 'take, make, and waste' is wasteful and polluting. Around 100 billion apparel items are produced per year, approximately doubling since 2006, and the majority of this is landfilled or burned within one year of production. It is estimated that 80% of a product’s environmental impact is determined at the design stage, where decisions on everything from materials, trims, repairability, longevity to recyclability are made.

We are running an exclusive intake for applicants of Redress’ Circular Fashion Design Course, tailor-made to provide essential knowledge for emerging fashion professionals eager to embark on a journey towards creating more sustainable fashion, with a new course module on "Design for Recyclability."

Redress is committed to equipping the next generation of fashion professionals with the necessary knowledge and tools to support, and succeed in, a fashion industry transitioning toward circularity. Your continued support enables us to continue to create deeper meaningful impact. We hope to hold more educational activities than we currently have funding for so every donation is welcomed with thanks as we work to reach our broad education goals.

 

Best wishes,
