The EcoChic Design Award is the first international sustainable fashion design competition bringing together Asian and European fashion designers who have a shared goal of promoting an environmentally low-impact fashion industry vision.
The Grand Final to be held in January 2015 promises to be the biggest show yet. I can't wait. Ever since I met Redress founder Christina Dean and learned about her fashion NGO along with her passion for sustainability, I was super excited to have a role in sharing her vision with my readers. I can go on and on about my concern for the environment and in particular our impact on it. This NGO just gets it. Read more about what Redress (and Christina) have done, here.
I am thrilled to have the opportunity to interview two of the finalists for 2015, Veronica, Hsiao Huei Lee from my home country Malaysia and Laurensia Salim from neighbouring Singapore. You'll be able to hear more about how they got started as well as what inspires their designs right here on my blog over the next month.
