Arti Joshi, Chole Wright, Gemma Hill, Lauren Burton, Lynsey Gibson, Christina Wong, Lili Sipeki, and Lavinia Mustapha will face 22 other designers for the final 10, who will be selected by an international panel of judges to travel to Hong Hong and present their waste-reducing collections at Hong Kong’s Fashion Week this September.

A record number of candidates from 56 countries applied for the award this year. Organised by Hong Kong-based environmental NGO Redress, the competition aims to champion sustainable fashion by asking candidates to reinvent fashion with innovative design techniques.

Redress founder and chairman, Christina Dean, commented: “The bad news is that fashion continues to be one of the world's most polluting industries, generating a shocking 92 million tons of textile waste annually, despite heightened awareness about the urgent need to fix this. The good news is the overwhelming response from designers applying to the Redress Design Award who are finding creative ways to incorporate diverse forms of fashion 'waste’ back into fashion again. Our competition signals that the next generation is sowing circularity within their design DNA. But can their innovation transform the fashion industry in time?”

The winner will win the opportunity to design a retail collection for upcycled brand The R Collective, which is stocked by retailers including Lane Crawford and Barneys New York.

“The semi-finalists' applications captivated me - they are proving to judges that their sustainable design techniques offer commercially viable and attractive options for the real world of retail. I want the winner to not just wow The R Collective's global stockists but also our future customers,” said Redress Design Award judge and The R Collective fashion director Denise Ho.
