Feeding a thirst for sustainable fashion

Since the first EcoChic Design Award in 2011, we have witnessed the launch of the careers of an array of talented sustainable designers who are as passionate as us about changing the fashion industry for the better. We now celebrate a community of 107 alumni - semi-finalists and finalists of the competition. Research indicates that 65% of emerging millennial consumers want sustainable clothes, and our alumni are demonstrating that they want to design them, with more than 20% of our alumni developing their own fashion brands!

Through their designs they employ a wide range of creative and stylish embodiments of sustainable fashion from the creative up-cycling of industry surplus, minimal waste design to the merging of traditional craftsmanship with modern design. Explore these brands and our other alumni pushing the boundaries in today’s fashion industry here and get in touch if you are interested in collaborating with this fabulous crew!
