EMERGING FASHION DESIGNERS ACTIVATING LOCAL CIRCULAR ECONOMIES

Dear valued donors,

 

We recently announced the winners of the Redress Design Award 2021 following our first hybrid/physical Grand Final fashion show that featured real and virtual models in September  -  emerging designer Jessica Chang from Taiwan won First Prize securing an unparalleled sustainable design collaboration with global outdoor lifestyle leader, Timberland. Explore the latest winners Here. Now in its 11th cycle the competition is urgently seeking to catalyse multiple micro-circular economies around the world to reduce fashion’s negative environmental impacts. 

Christina Dean, Redress’ Founder shared, “Fashion’s waste rates are unacceptable and change is not happening fast enough. Whilst recycling technology engineers search in labs for breakthrough recycling solutions and the finance community dither about financing much-needed recycling start-ups, Redress is increasingly promoting hyper-local waste sourcing solutions, spearheaded by fashion designers. Every textile deserves a second life.”

In the weeks leading up to the Redress Design Award 2021 Grand Final this September, our 10 finalists participated in a series of educational masterclasses and virtual challenges to learn about all aspects of the sustainable fashion industry, gaining real industry insights and exclusive access to leading experts, including a Digital Zero-waste Challenge with TAL Apparel and Browzwear and the ‘Icebreaker Move to Natural Challenge’ with VF Corporation.

Following up the Grand Final our finalists’ exhibition took place in Hong Kong, which you can explore in our 360 online exhibition HERE.

Every second, the equivalent of one rubbish truck of textiles is landfilled or incinerated globally, and textile waste is estimated to increase by 60% by 2030. Designers are said to influence around 80% of a product’s environmental impact, which is why education is core to each Redress Design Award cycle. We are gearing up for the 12th cycle launching in January 2022 – ready to educate and inspire emerging sustainable fashion designers.

Your continued support enables us to continue generating meaningful impact and we thank you! Donate Here
