Be inspired about how the positive power of fashion can transform waste into want
Select garments from the eleven 2018 Redress Design Award Finalists’ collections are on display from 14–23 September at the Mercedes me Store, as part of HKTDC’s ‘Hong Kong in Fashion’ – a month-long city wide campaign promoting fashion, trends and creativity at various trendsetting hotspots.
With fashion’s staggering excesses and polluting ways increasingly dominating the headlines, these eleven designers, selected from applications from 55 countries, skillfully demonstrate that textile waste is an opportunity not to be missed. Their transformational collections, recently showcased at Hong Kong’s CENTRESTAGE, share a vision of beauty and exponential possibility for waste
The amount of clothing produced globally now exceeds 100 billion garments per year; yet less than 1% of material used to produce clothing is recycled into new clothing. As the world wakes up to the scale of our waste problem, the Redress Design Award represents a shining light of opportunity, creativity and ingenuity against the backdrop of a global environmental crisis.
The Redress Design Award is the world’s largest sustainable fashion design competition. Organised by NGO Redress, the competition educates emerging designers around the world and promotes sustainable design theories and techniques to help foster a circular fashion economy. The competition creates a unique platform for passionate, talented game-changers to transform the global fashion industry and rewards the best with career-changing prizes to maximise long-term impact.
