Today, Redress, the Asia-focused environmental NGO, has announced to have iconic fashion brand Tommy Hilfiger joining forces for the Redress Design Award 2024, the world’s leading sustainable fashion design competition. Redress organizes the Redress Design Award 2024 under the support of Create Hong Kong (CreateHK) of the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) as the Lead Sponsor. The competition calls on emerging designers globally to apply with their circular and sustainable fashion collections, before the closing date of March 15, 2024.
Owned by PVH Corp., Tommy Hilfiger, is pleased to enter a new partnership to nurture emerging talent. The Redress Design Award 2024 First Prize winner will join the Tommy Hilfiger design team to work on a sustainable design project for retail, gaining valuable industry experience, and building on their knowledge of sustainable fashion.
As part of Tommy Hilfiger’s DNA, creating fashion that “Wastes Nothing and Welcomes All” reflects on the brand’s decades-long track record and commitment to making fashion more sustainable and inclusive. Tommy Hilfiger is exploring new, circular materials and manufacturing methods like creating quality pieces from textile waste, while operating with sensitivity to planetary boundaries. The brand is also working to make the fashion industry more accessible to underrepresented communities through programmes and partnerships and creating inclusive products that work for every Tommy Hilfiger fan.
Fashion designers looking to enhance their expertise in circular fashion design are encouraged to enrol in the free, online Redress Circular Fashion Design Course, delivered by leading industry experts, to gain an edge in the fast-changing fashion industry. The newest module ‘Design for Recyclability’, launching on January 23, 2024 and featuring insights from Jessica Wei, Senior Director of Sustainability at Tommy Hilfiger Asia Pacific, offers a unique opportunity to explore circular business models and learn from professionals embracing recyclability – and will be exclusively available to Redress Design Award applicants through 15 March.
With over 170 university partners worldwide, Redress is committed to equipping the next generation of fashion professionals with the necessary knowledge and tools to support, and succeed in, a fashion industry transitioning toward circularity.
