The winner of KappAhl Sustainable Design Contest will make a collection of intelligent garments made of recycled and sustainable materials.

This year’s edition of KappAhl’s sustainable design contest included a lot of great design solutions for the future. The contest is open for fashion and textile students who want to engage in sustainable design processes.

– Over 80 percent of a product’s environmental impact is determined at the drawing board. This makes sustainable design an area with great potential and plenty of room for experimentation and creative ideas. KappAhl therefore launched a design competition for design students in the textile and fashion industry in Sweden, Finland, Norway and Poland who want to be involved in developing the future of sustainable design solutions, says Frederica Klarén, sustainability manager at KappAhl.

The name of this year’s winner is Lovisa Malmberg Gomis. Her collection is based on the idea of so-called intelligent garments. Her designs can be combined in many ways which gives the clothes longer lives.
The garments in Lovisa Malmberg Gomis’ collection are made of recycled and sustainable materials and stick to the concept of zero waste (where waste during manufacturing is minimized). During fall, Lovisa Malmberg Gomis is going to develop her idea with KappAhl’s designers. She will also travel to KappAhl’s suppliers to see how the production looks like. Her designs will be available The winning design will be available in KappAhl’s stores during 2017.
