But until this becomes reality, Sustainable Fashion Awards aspires to find fashion brands (from emerging to well established ones) that are already taking the necessary steps to reduce their environmental impact.
The Sustainable Fashion Awards is open to designers and brands from every country, who are leading the way to a sustainable future, and have at least one completed project on this matter. The enrolled project can range from one garment to a full collection, and must fit into at least one of these socially-conscious and environmentally-friendly actions described below:
- Handmade pieces
- Local manufacturing
- Develop fair trade
- Smart design
- Zero fabric waste
- Animal welfare
- Use of recycled, upcycled or organic materials
- Consider the full lifecycle of a product
If you strongly believe that your brand is making fashionable products as well as carrying a responsible attitude when it comes to the environment and the people in it, please subscribe!
