The Eco Fashion Design Award 2013

Redress and Esprit counties to raise awareness around conscious fashion. Together they filled the 3rd floor of the Esprit store on Middle Xi Zhang Road with fashion influencers around the world for an educational conference surrounding the Eco Fashion Award 2013. The Eco Fashion Award in short allows for new designers to challenge themselves to create sustainable garments for the future, producing mainstream clothing with the use of minimal textile waste, through techniques as zero-waste, up-cycling and reconstruction. Among the speakers this afternoon was the Beautiful Christina Dean, CEO and founder of Redress which said that the aim of the competition is.. 
"fire-up emerging fashion designers from East to West to make tomorrow’s mass market and independent fashion industries sustainable from the source"  
 The winner will be announced at Hong Kong Fashion Week, January 2014. The winner will be given the chance to design a recycled textile collection which will be sold in Esprit. Last years winner Gong Jia Qi is already to be found in Esprit stores now.
