Time: - | Venue:

The Annual Fashion Competition is here again, following on from last year's Stay at Home, this year we focus on Sustainability.

About our Competition

Following on from the success of last year’s Bradford School of Art annual Fashion competition which set the concept influenced by the pandemic and been restricted to home, this year the concept of the impact of the pandemic continues, but this time focusing upon how lock down and restrictions allowed the environment to breathe.

With less planes in the sky, cars on the roads and movement of shoppers, for this years competition you are asked to think about sustainability to design a women’s, men’s or kidswear outfit using only recycled denim and carrier bags as the fabrics.

We are waiting to confirm a workshop day, where you can come into the College to get tips and help for ideas with your design – keep an eye out for the date!

Sustainability within fashion is vital and as potential future fashion influencers it’s time to put this into practice!
