Tommy Hilfiger has been named the lead partner for the Redress Design Award 2024, the world’s premier sustainable fashion design competition.
The Redress Design Award invites emerging designers globally to showcase their circular and sustainable fashion collections. The competition is now open to emerging designers who can apply until March 15.
As part of the partnership, the first prize winner will collaborate with the Tommy Hilfiger design team on a sustainable retail project, gaining invaluable industry experience and building on their knowledge of sustainable fashion.
The move is aligned with Tommy Hilfiger’s commitment to sustainability, which is embedded in its DNA. The brand focuses on creating fashion that ‘Wastes Nothing and Welcomes All’ and is currently exploring new, circular materials and manufacturing methods, like creating quality pieces from textile waste.
The brand is also working to make the fashion industry more accessible and inclusive through programmes, partnerships, and product creation.
“Fashion is one of the world’s most polluting industries. Left unabated, pollution and waste is set to worsen. We urgently need to accelerate circular fashion, which is the best way to let fashion thrive without costing the earth,” said Dr. Christina Dean, founder of Redress.
“Working from our Hong Kong headquarters, and with our Asia focus, we want to redress — to remedy and set right — fashion, by collaborating with bold fashion brand businesses and brilliant designer talent to create the fashion industry of the future, right now.”
Coinciding with the launch, Redress is offering a free online Circular Fashion Design Course. The latest module, ‘Design for Recyclability,’ launching on January 23, provides insights from Jessica Wei, senior director of sustainability at Tommy Hilfiger Asia Pacific, and is exclusively available to Redress Design Award applicants.
