As part of its awareness-raising work, MEDASSET, together with AKTO, the College of Art and Design, and DoitEco Project, created a competition in which 10 students and recent graduates of the College have been given an opportunity to present new work to the public. All the clothing includes fabric woven with ECONYL® yarn – so it’s partly made with recycled fishing nets. Four of the five judges tasked with selecting the three top designers are women who are professionals in the fields of conservation, fashion, art, or business.
The fifth set of marks will be in the gift of the public, which, from the 5th of May is invited to join the judging panel and cast its votes to say which of the 10 competitors has best succeeded in communicating the ambitions of the initiative! The results will be announced on our website and the three top designers will be awarded their prizes at a special event.
About the Project:
