Hong Kong’s EcoChic Design Award Fashion Academy at Sheffield Institute of the Arts

The EcoChic Design Award 2017 – the world’s largest sustainable fashion design competition – is now open for applications until 3 April.

They are on the search for the next group of designers who have what it takes to cut waste out of fashion and who will join them in Hong Kong in September for the grand final at Hong Kong’s fashion week CENTRESTAGE.

This year they have again expanded the competition and will be accepting entries from Asia, Europe and the (newly added) USA.
