REDRESS FORUM: FORD DESIGN CHALLENGE

On 15 January, The Redress Forum: Ford Design Challenge tasked our finalists to up-cycle sustainable materials used in Ford’s vehicles, and made from recycled plastic bottles, into statement fashion outfits. This one-day action and education packed challenge between two of the world’s largest industries, fashion and cars, explored how cross-industry sharing can give rise to sustainable design innovation. To drive their creativity further, the designers took a whistle-stop tour of Hong Kong’s highlights, from heritage sites to bustling markets, to inject local inspiration into their up-cycled outfits, which were revealed on the runway at Hong Kong Fashion Week to the region’s top influencers. The winners of the challenge were Amy Ward and Pan Wen, who jointly won an educational fund of HKD 10,000 provided by Ford.

REDRESS FORUM: RECONSTRUCTION WORKSHOP
On 18 January, The Redress Forum: Reconstruction Workshop took our finalists on an educational journey into the depths of a secondhand clothing warehouse, located on the Hong Kong and China border. Surrounded by mountains of discarded clothes, they were challenged to explore how fashion designers can reduce waste and influence a garment’s sustainability, usability and recyclability. They then developed ideas for reconstructed outfits, imagined with an aspirational brand in mind, as they demonstrated how their creativity can keep clothes in the fashion loop for longer.
REDRESS FORUM: TAL APPAREL ZERO-WASTE WORKSHOP 
On 19 January, The Redress Forum: TAL Apparel Zero-waste Workshop took our finalists to one of the world’s largest shirt manufacturers, TAL Apparel located in the heart of Southern China’s expansive manufacturing region, to learn how this shirt manufacturer manages its environmentally-conscious business ethics in order to reduce textile, energy and water waste throughout the shirt production process. The finalists had the chance to get hands-on experience in how sustainable practices can be applied along the entire supply chain, before pitching their zero-waste ideas to TAL Apparel’s senior teams.  
PANEL DISCUSSION ATHKTDC HONG KONG FASHION WEEK
On 18 January, Redress and HKTDC co-organised a panel discussion to answer the question 'Can circular business models be a solution for the fashion industry’s textile waste?'.
