A total of 20 European fashion and design schools took part in the 2nd “Fashioning Sustainability” competition organized by Freudenberg PM together with Macpi and Bemberg by Asahi Kasei, two co-branding partners in the textile industry.
Freudenberg Performance Materials Holding SE & Co. KG (Freudenberg PM), Weinheim/Germany, invited talented young designers to create and submit their ideas for sustainable clothing. The initiative aims to show that sustainability is a key factor in the fashion industry.
2 of the most innovative outfits from each school were selected for the final round and presented to an international jury at the “Bagni Misteriosi” event location in Milan/Italy, in May 2023. Fashion design experts and opinion leaders as well as journalists were invited to select the most sustainable designs in the categories of “Technology” and “Design”.
The winners
1st place in the “Technology” category went to Judith Marquant, while 2nd place went to Jagoda Sokolowska, both students of the fashion school Esmod in Paris/France. Ilaria De Martino, from the fashion institute Modartech, Italy, and Xiaodan Liao from Polimoda, Italy, were awarded 1st and 2nd place in the “Design” category. The first-place winners received €2,000, while the second places won €1,000.
All participants benefited from the platform to network with leading players in the garment industry and learn more about concrete steps for embracing sustainability. Creating true sustainability in the fashion industry means reducing the material flow of clothing, addressing both sustainable production and consumption.
