Fashion heavyweights Susie Lau and ELLE China’s Stephanie Zhu joins the jury of the EcoChic Design Awards.
On our minds is EcoChic Design Awards, the initiative that invites young design students to explore sustainable and waste-cutting design techniques. The competition, which for 2015/16 has expanded to include the whole of Europe and Asia, recently revealed this year’s 10 finalists, selected from a record-breaking number of applicants. This season, the recurring judges (including Fashion Revolution’s Orsola de Castro) will be joined by fashion heavyweights Susie Lau and ELLE China’s Stephanie Zhu. We are very excited to see the competition evolve and as always can’t wait for the reveal of the final designs. Hear what the finalists have to say about sustainability here.
