Next month, we will be announcing the 30 semi-finalists of the Redress Design Award 2019 - a brand new cohort of emerging design talents – so watch this space! Our prize partner of six years Bloomsbury Visual Arts will be supporting these young designers again by supplying sustainable fashion titles to build their knowledge and skills. Bloomsbury are also generously offering the Redress network a 30% discount on all fashion titles.
We celebrated the launch of the eighth cycle of our flagship programme, the Redress Design Award (formerly the EcoChic Design Award) – the world’s largest sustainable fashion design competition - with an event underpinning our mission at Eaton House in Hong Kong on January 19th. A panel of industry experts reflected on the current state of sustainable fashion and why 2018 represents a critical tipping point for consumers, designers and brands to incorporate sustainability across the supply chain. We also heard from Redress Design Award Alumni designer Victor Chu on his experiences participating in the competition and his latest design collaboration with new up-cycling brand, The R Collective, which was on display.
