Emerging designers innovate and disrupt a fashion industry in crisis

Dear valued donors,

This year Redress, like so many others, have had to adapt and change quickly - founder Christina Dean shared, “What a year! With the global pandemic disrupting our plans for the 10th cycle of the Redress Design Award, and at the same time underlining the urgency for our work to transform fashion’s waste, our activities evolved to take place virtually, joining our finalists and audiences from their homes across the world to highlight the crisis. And a crisis is the perfect opportunity for our designers to innovate and disrupt fashion industry practices that are wreaking havoc on our planet's resources.”

In the weeks leading up to the Redress Design Award 2020 Grand Final this September, our 10 finalists participated in a series of educational expert talks, and virtual challenges to learn about all aspects of the sustainable fashion industry, gaining real industry insights and exclusive access to leading experts.

Redress hosted the Digital Up-Cycling Challenge in partnership with TAL Apparel and Browzwear, where finalists were tasked to use digital design and sampling to demonstrate their up-cycling skills using Browzwear’s software to provide design-manufacturing solutions to address TAL’s Covid-19 related deadstock.

For the Made for Change Challenge finalists were asked to develop a sustainable and scalable business concept which brought VF Corporation’s brand Timberland’s purpose of life through responsible design and re-manufacturing of deadstock fabric.

The Grand Final Show, saw the announcement of the womenswear (Juliana Garcia Bello from Argentina) and first standalone menswear first prizes and the menswear first prize (Le Ngoc Ha Thu from Vietnam). Explore our winners collections here.

The Redress Team are now working on finishing up the 10th cycle, with finalists’ exhibitions in Hong Kong and Amsterdam for Fashion for Good. We are gearing up for the 11th cycle launching in January 2021 – ready to educate and inspire emerging sustainable fashion designers.

Fashion’s waste is a significant challenge. The industry is estimated to generate 92 million tons of textile waste1 annually worldwide. Covid-19 is set to increase this; 60% of textile and clothing companies expect their sales to drop by half in the short term2 and with this leading to deadstock and cancelled orders. The Redress Design Award 2020 finalists’ collections demonstrate numerous solutions to reduce waste throughout the entire fashion supply chain and also across industries. The appetite for change and collaboration has never been greater.
