Catch the debut broadcast of Frontline Fashion 2 on Lifetime Asia at 8pm (Hong Kong/Singapore time), 23 March 2018.
Frontline Fashion 2 follows 10 emerging designers from across the globe who are determined to change the future of fashion – one of the most polluting industries imaginable. Battling to win the Redress Design Award, the world's largest sustainable design competition, the 10 finalists descend into Hong Kong - the epicentre of Asia's fashion scene - to showcase their collections, together with their hopes and dreams in a live Grand Final.
All eyes are on the first prize - the chance to create an up-cycled retail collection for bold new sustainable brand, The R Collective... but before they hit the runway the designers have to prove to the judges that they have what it takes to transform fashion as they are challenged to reconstruct dumped clothing into celebrity red carpet pieces and slash textile waste at one of the world's biggest clothing manufacturers. As the designers vie for first place, they also prove that when it comes sustainable fashion, there is no need to compromise on style. But there can only be one winner…
The decision to develop a TV format extension of the Redress Design Award, together with our production partner Mustard, was a natural step to reach new audiences. “We’ve been determined to translate the passion we see every year in Hong Kong at the Redress Design Award from our incredible finalists into entertaining TV,” says Redress’ Founder Christina Dean. “To bring the world’s largest sustainable design competition to a global audience and have them fall in love with it is a great feat.”
