REDRESS REVEALS NEW LINEUP OF EMERGING SUSTAINABLE DESIGNERS WITH THE TALENT TO TACKLE FASHION’S GROWING WASTE PROBLEM

Public voting for the ‘People’s Choice Award’ now open until 6 May

April 17, 2019 - Hong Kong – The world’s largest sustainable fashion design competition, the Redress Design Award announces the 2019 cycle semi-finalists. The 30 outstanding designers represent the brightest talent in a growing swell of ambitious emerging designers working to tackle the environmental challenges of the fashion industry. As the world wakes up to the enormity of fashion’s negative footprint, from carbon emissions, water pollution and chemical use to spiralling over-consumption and waste, the Redress Design Award showcases the critical role designers can play in finding solutions.

Focusing on the need to eliminate textile waste the competition challenges emerging fashion designers and students to explore the circular economy through the core sustainable design techniques of zero-waste, up-cycling and reconstruction. Redress Founder & Board Chair, Dr. Christina Dean noted “If the fashion industry carries on with a business-as-usual linear model, carbon emissions from textile production alone are set to rise by more than 60% by 2030, but these emerging designers give us hope for a future where textile waste is valued, and where responsible design, production and consumption with circularity in mind are the norm.”
