THE REDRESS DESIGN AWARD 2019 FINALISTS SHOWCASE

SIGNATURE LOOKS AT ‘BREAK THROUGH’ PHOTOSHOOT

 15 August 2019 - Hong Kong - Redress, Hong Kong-based environmental charity, will be showcasing 10 never-seen-before collections at the Grand Final of the world’s largest sustainable fashion design competition - the Redress Design Award - on 5 September 2019. A photoshoot of all these signature looks, made entirely from textile waste, was also arranged to highlight the stunning work of the Redress Design Award 2019 Finalists, which include menswear in the competition for the first time, alongside womenswear and unisex lines. With Create Hong Kong (CreateHK) of the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region as the Lead Sponsor and now in its ninth cycle, the Redress Design Award shines a spotlight on Hong Kong as an important sustainable fashion hub, while providing a critical platform for emerging design talent.

 With finalists hailing from across the world, the collections by overseas finalists to be showcased at the Grand Final of the Redress Design Award 2019 were shipped in from India, Germany, Canada, Australia, UK, Israel and Spain by long-term partner UPS, to Hong Kong. Their collections, together with those designed by the two finalists from Hong Kong, will kick off the exciting countdown to the finale. Renowned fashion photographer Donald Chiu and Hong Kong stylist Kieran Ho led the photoshoot to capture the 2019 collections at creative collaborative workspace, The Hive Studios, in Kennedy Town. The finalists of this cycle were challenged to incorporate sustainably-sourced Eastman Naia™ fabrics into their 100% textile waste-based collection pieces, and the team behind the shoot celebrated the powerful influence that the collections possess to break the stigma of reused and up-cycled fabrics. The artistic direction of the photoshoot featured bright backdrops of artistically torn paper (sourced from dead stock through partner companies), and referenced the breakthrough of sustainable fashion into the mainstream.
