Eco-Fashion Design Contest
A collaborative project of VenturaVie and Salt Tree Art
SUBMISSIONS FOR DESIGNS ACCEPTED THROUGH JULY 2021
In a rapidly changing world, what is the future of fashion?
We offer a platform for these innovative concepts, showcasing creativity and hopefulness in addressing global challenges and amplifying the voices of up-and-coming designers who might otherwise not have access.
The contest will ask designers to imagine innovative fashion for the future, with a focus on the themes of beauty, resilience, and adaptation that speak to our shared ecological future. Interested artists will submit an original concept sketch (pre-existing pieces will not be eligible) for wearable works of fashion, accompanied by a short description of how their designs address the contest themes. Submissions will require a $21 entrance fee.
More information about the contest, as well as the submission form, will be available at: WearWeAreGoing.org
We want to showcase artists and designers at all stages of their careers, from students and amateurs to long-time professionals. Ten submissions will be chosen as finalists to build their design, competing for a $3,000 cash prize to be announced during a live fashion showcase event! Again, check out WearWeAreGoing.org for additional details, and to apply with your concept.
We are thrilled to partner with Kristen Griffith-VanderYacht as our program host. Kristen has been named one of the world's top florists by Harper's Bazaar, and he previously served as the head judge for the Big Flower Fight on Netflix.
We need you to spread the word about this contest! SHARE THIS Announcement, the event webpage, and our social media posts! Forward the contest to any aspiring eco-fashion designers you know!
