Sustainable Fashion Competition, Singapore: An Update

Singapore's first sustainable fashion competition titled Fashionably Sustainable Competition is progressing well. Participating designers have undergone the required workshop on Sustainable Fashion Value Chain, and have submitted their concept to TAFF, the organizer.

I had fun, and enjoyed, conducting the workshop for the participants even though it meant working on almost all the weekends in April and May. It was worth it. Participants demonstrated amazing drive and creativity during the workshop. Going by the feedback received, participants found the workshop of immense use and gave excellent rating to the course. Very satisfying.

The sustainable fashion course, championed by the Workforce Development Agency of Singapore, TAFF and has put Singapore on the world map of sustainable fashion talent development. And I am happy to be part of this exciting story by helping developed the sustainable fashion competency national framework and the training programme.

The course has also been included in the fashion technology diploma programmes run by, fashion industry's leading school in Singapore.

Sessions run for the competition participants have been extensively filmed to produce a video which will be showcased during the final fashion show.

The final fashion show is on the 1st Sept at Singapore's gardening hub Hort Park. Twelve finalists will make it to the final cat walk.

I am on the judging panel and eagerly looking forward to the next round:)

Will keep you posted.
