EcoChic Design Award- open for designers from Europe and Asia

Designer aufgepasst! Der EcoChic Design Award geht in die fünfte Runde. Und zum zweiten Mal dürfen auch europäische DesignerInnen daran teilnehmen. Aussendung-Auszüge in Englisch:

Redress opens their fifth cycle of The EcoChic Design Award sustainable fashion design competition, challenging emerging designers in Asia and Europe to design a ‘Modern China Chic’ textile waste-reducing collection for China’s leading luxury brand. The competition encourages designers to look East to reduce textile waste and put sustainable fashion on China’s design, production and retail agenda.


Christina Dean, Founder and CEO of Redress said, ‘Textile waste continues to be an urgent environmental problem. China, home to the world’s clothing and textile factories and awash with textile waste, is now taking note and turning waste into opportunity. From our base in Hong Kong, we are witnessing a polluted China activate her creativity, stretch her supply chain and flex her power as China unleashes a positive signal about sustainable fashion innovation. The EcoChic Design Award unites Asian and European designers with the world’s fashion super-power and the world must take note.’ 
The EcoChic Design Award continuously expands its influence and footprint and is now accepting applicants from emerging fashion designers with less than three years’ experience living in Hong Kong, Mainland China, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia, UK, France, Germany, Sweden and Denmark until the closing date on 15 August, 2014. Ten finalists, one from each of the regions, will present their sustainable collections at Hong Kong Fashion Week in January 2015 to compete for career changing prizes.

Deutschland ist vertreten mit Magdalena Schaffrin, vom Green ShowRoom, Anna Eimerl von Kalinka Kalinka, Annika Wichelhaus von ESPRIT und Alex Vogt von kernkommunikation.
Was genau ein Konzern wie Esprit, der rein gar nichts mit Eco Fashion zu tun hat, hier als Sponsor tut, weiß ich nicht. Aber vielleicht habe ich ja etwaige ökofaire Umwälzungen im Konzern einfach verpasst...
