Environmental NGO Redress presents a preview of 11 collections to be shown at the Grand Final of the world’s largest sustainable fashion design competition – the Redress Design Award – this 6 September. ‘In Between’ is a striking photoshoot featuring the work of exceptional emerging sustainable design talent, shortlisted from applications hailing from a record 55 countries earlier this year.
In 2005, Dame Ellen McArthur became the fastest solo sailor to circumnavigate the globe. During her journey, she realised just how important her resources were to survival: “Suddenly I realised our global economy is no different,” she told sustainable consultants McKinsey.
Today, Dame Ellen is one of the world’s most high profile proponents of a circular economy, in which waste is no longer discarded but becomes, instead, another precious resource.
The applications are in!
The first truly global cycle of the Redress Design Award has been an overwhelming success. Expanding beyond Asia, Europe and the USA for the first time, our sustainable fashion design competition has attracted a record number of applications from designers living in more than 50 countries around the globe, including first time applications from countries such as Bolivia, Estonia, Australia and Kenya.
