Fashion For Good is the new home of Redress, the annual competition to find the most exciting sustainable fashion designer in the world. 

The goal of the competition is nothing short of revolutionary, changing the materials and processes that make up global fashion and the final entries showcase clothes made with zero waste, upcycling and reconstruction techniques from tomorrow's gamechangers.

In 2017 it was won by British designer Kate Morris for her plant-based knitwear (read our interview with her here). This year the finalists' entries are being displayed at Amsterdam's Fashion For Good.

Last year 55 countries were represented in the ethical fashion competition. Redress 2018 was won by Tess Whitfort for her use of end of fabric rolls and complex zero waste patterns (every year the fashion industry wastes an estimated 92 million tonnes of textiles).

Hong Kong designer, Jesse Lee also won a tailored mentorship with sustainable fashion designer and guru, Orsola de Castro. 

Whitfort and Lee's winning designs can be seen amongst the exhibits from all 11 finalists, which also includes ethical fashion designer, Hung Wei-Yu's handmade lace made from wood scraps from the furniture industry.

The exhibit will run until the 14th February 2019 at the Fashion for Good Experience at Rokin 102 in Amsterdam and is free of entry.
