Thirty young designers have made the semifinals of the Redress Design Awards this year, hailing from as far afield as India, China, Vietnam, the US, Australia and New Zealand.
Consumer voting is now open and the designer with the most votes will go directly to the final round of the competition. The fast-tracked winner, along with nine other finalists, will have a chance to present their collection at a presentation in September.
The final designers will be selected by an international panel of expert judges. According to Redress Design Awards, the judges will look for “creativity and originality; sustainability and innovation including skilful use of circular design techniques; marketability and scalability; and in the Grand Final round, workmanship.”
All semi-finalists will be able to participate in the Redress Design Award Alumni Network, where they can find support for their careers in sustainable fashion, opportunities, collaborations and promotion of their work to targeted industry professionals and the media.
