Challenge

The textile industry is one of the world's most polluting industries. The generation of textile waste is increasing around the world, largely because of the fast fashion industry in which more clothes are produced with lower quality and at lower price points, leading to greater consumption, production and waste along the entire supply chain. Many fashion industry professionals are unaware of the impact they have and greater education along the supply chain is needed.

Long-Term Impact

The EcoChic Design Award creates an international platform enabling the exchange of knowledge, experiences and ideas between emerging fashion designers from leading fashion trade countries, inspiring the next generation of industry professionals to be the positive change the fashion industry needs. In the 2017 cycle, the project aims to reach over 20,000 students and emerging designers through workshops and lectures and through our online educational platform.
