Redress Design Award Finalists Turn Waste into Want

Redress Design Award Finalists

Following a global search for talent, the world’s largest sustainable fashion design competition culminated in a live Grand Final runway show last night in Hong Kong (6 September).

We’re pleased to announce Australian designer Tess Whitfort as Redress Design Award 2018 First Prize Winner!

As the world wakes up to the scale of our waste problem, the Redress Design Award represents a shining light of creativity and ingenuity amidst the backdrop of a global environmental crisis. This is even more relevant with media interest and Burberry’s very recent announcement that they will no longer burn unsold clothing and goods.
