EcoChic Design Award Hong Kong 2011 Grand Final

The EcoChic Design Award Hong Kong 2011 Grand Final put Hong Kong’s hottest emerging fashion designers into the heated spotlight at W Hong Kong on 20th May 2011 in a grand final fashion show that culminated six grueling months under the EcoChic Design Award glare. The six grand finalists each presented a six-piece sustainable ready-to-wear and evening-dress collection based on zero-waste design, reconstruction, up-cycling and recycling, flexing their creative prowess in front of a high-profile panel of local and international judges along with 400 of Hong Kong’s fashion, retail and media heavyweights.

Janko Lam was crowned the EcoChic Design Award Hong Kong 2011 Grand Final Winner. Whilst still on stage, Janko was presented with her trophy, a design brief to create a capsule collection for Esprit made using recycled textiles and her plane ticket to London Fashion Week’s Estethica to savor the best of the West’s sustainable designers.

Ferrando Chan was coined the EcoChic People’s Award Winner, as voted by the public online at the EcoChic Design Award website, winning an exciting educational and inspiring trip to visit sustainable luxury jewelry brand John Hardy’s production facilities in the terraced paddy pieces of Bali to learn first-hand how the company integrates sustainability into the core of their business philosophy.

We loved this because throughout the six-month competition process we witnessed the emergence of talented and well-informed fashion designers that are putting Hong Kong on the sustainable fashion map of Asia and who are, we hope, planting the seeds that will one day explode into a fully fledged wave of Chinese sustainable designers and brands.
