Follow the journey of emerging fashion designers as they compete in the world’s largest sustainable fashion competition, the Redress Design Award.

As the tides turn on fast fashion, sustainability has proved itself to be more than just a passing fad. More brands and designers than ever before have gone green in an effort to battle climate change. And now, thanks to the return of award-winning docu series Frontline Fashion, you can get an intimate behind-the-scenes look at exactly what that entails.

Frontline Fashion: Redress

Set against the backdrop of our very own Hong Kong, Frontline Fashion follows the talented finalists of the annual Redress Design Award as they battle it out for the chance to win the coveted first prize. Along the way, they’re challenged with a series of educational workshops, all aimed at shining a spotlight on the complexities of sustainable fashion. It’s a must-watch for any eco-conscious fashionista!

Created in collaboration with TV director Lindsay Robertson and Redress, a Hong Kong-based environmental charity working to prevent and transform textile waste in the industry, Frontline Fashion has a binge-worthy four seasons under its belt. Hosted by Cara G McIlroy, the latest season, which consists of five bite-sized ten-minute episodes, is available to watch now on the Redress Asia YouTube channel. Cue the sartorial drama!

Inspiring and informative, we wouldn’t be surprised if the series spurs any aspiring designers to get in on the sustainable fashion action. Luckily, they can! The Redress Design Award will be back for another year, with applications open until Wednesday, 18 March 2020. Head here for all the details. Redress has also newly launched the Circular Fashion Design Pathway, aimed at supporting emerging designers. But hurry, you only have until Wednesday, 19 February 2020 to submit your initial application!
